This roundtable program serves as an exploration of indiscriminate friendliness (IF) displayed by international adoptees (IA) in the U.S. It re-examines the definition and clinical indication of the behavior, which poses questions and new directions to traditional diagnoses and clinical suggestions. The presenters provides an overview of literature under two different umbrellas: 1. indiscriminate friendliness as a reflection of attachment; and 2. Indiscriminate friendliness as an independent social behavior. The presenters will welcome participants’ knowledge and understanding about IF and will hold a discussion around exhibition of IF particularly within the IA population, clinical implications, and cultural consideration related to the behavior. The roundtable discussion is expected to lead to important implications for clinical practice, counselor education, as well as future research directions.
