Abstract

This article is directed at clinicians who want to increase their effectiveness in identifying and successfully intervening with psychological stressors faced by their Asian American adolescent clients. The myths that Asian American adolescents are universally academically successful and emotionally problem-free have eclipsed the true adaptive challenges faced by these young people. The authors underscore those difficulties faced by Chinese and Vietnamese adolescents in the areas of psychological distress, behavior problems, and academic performance. The article concludes with a number of recommendations to inform clinicians wishing to develop culturally competent clinical formulations and interventions.
