Author: Lui, Judy T
Department: Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition
Abstract: This paper aims to explore the nuanced impact of Chinese culture in therapy. Current research on Chinese cultural competencies and its impact on therapeutic alliance and outcomes is reviewed. Key themes, values, and norms of the Chinese culture and the potential challenges they pose to psychotherapists when building therapeutic alliances are discussed. From these challenges, culturally adapted practical applications and implications for therapists working with Chinese clients are recommended and explored.
