clients who are culturally different than themselves. His work has been
more than fruitful. He has developed methods that have been shown to improve
the client counselor relationship in many important ways. When counselors
were trained (for only 4 hours) using these methods, the clients saw the
counselors as more trustworthy, more empathetic, more attractive, and
as having more unconditional regard. The clients also saw the counselors
