2 Running Head: SYSTEMS AND MULTICULTURAL APPROACHES Systems and Multicultural Approaches There are many different approaches that need to be taken in order to be successful at psychotherapy treatment. No two people are just alike, therefore each person require their own individual treatment. The world as we know it is very diverse and just because one may live next door to someone does not mean they share the same culture. What works for one person based on culture more than likely will not work for another from a different culture. In this paper there will be a discussion on four case studies, there will be a comparison as well as a contrast between the case studies. This paper will show how systems theory and multicultural approaches can make a difference in psychotherapy as well as which one works for what. Swhelper published an article where they broke down systems theory as, “Systems theory states that behavior is influenced by a variety of factors that work together as a system. A person’s parents, friends, school, economic class, home environment and other factors all influence how a person thinks and acts.” (Swhelper, 2017) Alliant International University described multicultural counseling as, “Multicultural counseling characterizes the counseling practice that offers effective interventions to culturally diverse clients. Race, ethnicity, and culture influence a client’s identity and life circumstances.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
