The multicultural counseling movement emerged in response to a diversified society and an increasing need to bring the awareness of culture into clinical practice. Using postmodern theories, shifting from "discovering insights," which suggests an objective knowing, to "identifying meanings," which posits being aware of multiple subjective realities, this article delineates clinical examples of how ethno-cultural and linguistic transference and countertransference are manifested and either are neglected or used in the clinical practice from the perspectives of traditional Asian cultures.
