Southeast Asian refugees are from Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam (Kim & Kim, 2014). They were forced to flee their country due to the threat of the war and the corrupt political system (Ying, 2001). In 1975, more than 130, 000 refugees arrived in the United States and by 2010; more than one million refugees resettled in the United States (Southeast Asian Resource Action Center, 2011). This population has come to the United States with histories of traumatic events and a unique background. In order to meet the distinct needs of this group, and in order to provide ethical and culturally sensitive treatment, professional counselors must increase their knowledge, skills, awareness, and actions when working with marginalized clients. (Paniagua, 2014; Ratts, Singh, Nassar-McMillan, Butler, & McCullough, 2015).
