Assessment and diagnosis is a crucial element of the counseling process that unfortunately remains a frequently overlooked area in the multicultural counseling literature. The multicultural counseling competencies require counselors to be respectful of clients, which naturally include their attribution theories and expressions of distress. Honoring the diversity of our clients must exist within all of our counseling modalities. Explanatory Model Interviewing (EMI), anchored in Feminist therapy, is a useful modality for respectful and culturally competent diagnosis.
