Counselling needs to be culturally grounded or infused to be ethical and of high quality. Practitioners need to grow in relationships of trust over years within Indigenous and/or multicultural settings. One size fits all and graduate training programs that assume therapists can practice in literally every and any setting are deeply flawed and dangerous assumptions promoted by the therapeutic industry. Using ecological transpersonal subjectivism and postmodern analysis as a background, this book explores healing and integration of race, identity, and empowerment. LGBTI+ and Two Spirit issues are highlighted by a case study of a 36 year old, female, lesbian, Indigenous Canadian, immigrant to Australia. Values clarification, identity-reframing, social acknowledgment, healing, and transformation are mobilised in a ‘post-colonial’ environment.
