A treatment modality that is non-threatening, respects culture, and empowers all clients is horticultural therapy. Horticulture therapy presents a type of phenomenological counseling approach sensitive to different styles of interaction. This approach is being tried in Cincinnati, Ohio, with a group of refugees who survived genocide in Burundi, many of whom were farmers in their native land. In addition to building esteem, it also gives them a sense of control in their lives and provides them with an opportunity to provide for their families and the community.
