The purpose of this project is to develop a workshop to education and train mental health practitioners to effectively help Indo-Canadian (I am going to use interchangeable terms Indo-Canadian, East-Indians or/and South Asians throughout in my project) clients. A review of the literature on Indo-Canadian culture will be provided, including the social and psychosocial experiences of Indo-Canadian individuals in a Western society. Different identity models will be discussed in relevance to Indo-Canadian people. Then, client counsellor relationship and counselling theories that work best for this population will be discussed. Workshop format, target audience, and ethical concerns are presented. Detailed scenarios regarding Indo-Canadian culture and interactions will be included in this workshop. --Leaf ii.
