Counseling Native American Clients
Discuss the types of mental health concerns you may likely encounter in counseling a Native American client, couple, family, or group (for example, the impact of educational disparities on career development). Incorporating the unit readings and Kim Spoor’s insights of the Anishinaabe culture, identify specific multicultural counseling competencies, skills, and ethical considerations to prepare for professional work with Native Americans.
Respond to the posts of at least two other learners. Your responses should be substantive and contribute to the conversation by asking questions, respectfully debating positions, and presenting supporting literature relevant to the topic. Please review the Faculty Expectations for any other requirements for peer responses.

· Identify multicultural counseling approaches, competencies, skills, and ethical considerations to prepare for professional work with diverse populations.
