How effective would counseling be if an individual’s cultural experiences and identities were not taken into consideration?

Case of William Final Paper Overview

What if counseling practice did not account for the many layers that contribute to an individual’s identity? Can you fully help clients if you ignore their experiences as male or female, homosexual or heterosexual, religious or atheist? What about all the other identities individuals assume? Very few individuals fall into either/or categories when it comes to identity. How effective would counseling be if an individual’s cultural experiences and identities were not taken into consideration?

As a member of society and as a participant in the counseling community, you encounter numerous individuals and their varying perspectives. The purpose of the Final Paper is to allow you to become familiar with navigating the influences of the various multicultural identities that emerge in counseling practice.
