Discussion Question

 A twenty-six-year-old Asian American client participated in an outpatient mental health program. He attended the program daily. When the client met with older male Caucasian therapist, he was very polite and agreeable. The client would agree to the treatment goals, yet, when he returned for the monthly review, the client had made no progress on the goals. What do you think might explain this client’s engagement or lack of engagement from a cultural/ethnic perspective?
