Abstract(englisch):
Cross-cultural counselling addresses the challenges faced when working with clients from diverse backgrounds, primarily stressing differences. That counselling itself is a cultural practice generally tends to be overlooked. To encourage a debate that goes beyond cross-cultural concerns, the culture concept based on an action theoretical approach to cultural psychology is outlined showing that humans are inconceivable without culture. From this perspective counselling is understood as a cultural-historical phenomenon, a culture-bound communicative and standard-oriented action, which takes place against a backdrop of socio-political conditions. Personal cultural standards have to be related to one another systematically during counselling. They are relevant at an individual and institutional level (well-being and supra-individual standards) and pertain to processes as well (cultural competence). Essentially one is dealing with individual meaning systems rather than cultures. (DIPF/Orig.)
