Chinese Females in America and Taiwan Pondering Divorce: Counseling Methods
Li-Ching Hung and Cary Stacy Smith
Compared with other ancient cultures, Chinese civilization is the oldest still extant in the world today. Its unique ethos has affected the majority of other Asian countries, including Japan, Korea, Vietnam, etc. In addition, according to the most recent U.S Census statistics, Chinese-Americans are the largest Asian group residing in the United States (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2000). In this rapidly globalizing world, it is crucial for counselors to be both multicultural and culturally competent when working with female Chinese immigrants facing divorce.
