Discuss guidelines for research that have direct implications for cross cultural counselors and therapists (c) to identify questions of ethics that come out of reading through American psychological Association guidelines that pertain to serving a multicultural population.

Abstract: The ethical crisis of cross cultural counseling and therapy results from the use of mental health assumptions, assessments, and interventions that were developed in one cultural context but implemented in a totally different one. The present article sought (a) to determine if ethical guidelines sensitive to cross cultural counseling and therapy are needed (b) to discuss guidelines for research that have direct implications for cross cultural counselors and therapists (c) to identify questions of ethics that come out of reading through American psychological Association guidelines that pertain to serving a multicultural population. Questions for discussion are identified by solutions are not offered. The authors encourage increased discussions and cooperation that will result in development of ethical guidelines for cross cultural counselors and therapists.
