This three part series presents real-life examples of Filipino American clients who are attending psychotherapy for the first time. Because of unique histories of colonization, Filipino Americans may have an array of cultural values and experiences that differ from other Asian Americans. Dr. Nadal facilitates culturally competent counseling techniques, ranging from here-and-now processing to strength-based counseling.
Part 1: A Filipina American college student struggles with balancing her academic responsibilities and personal life. Dr. Nadal explores how social, cultural, and familial factors may impact an individual's presenting problems in both conscious and unconscious ways.
Part 2: A Filipino American middle-aged man discusses stressors at work, particularly issues of discrimination. Dr. Nadal encourages the client to explore repressed emotions, instead of rationalizing or intellectualizing his feelings (a common defense mechanism in Filipino Americans).
Part 3: A biracial Filipino/Dominican young man shares his anxiety about career choices and family pressures, including a strained relationship with his father.
