Explore the use of compassion-based approaches that spring from the same grounding in Buddhist psychology. Look to indigenous teachings on the im​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‌‍‍​portance of harmony with nature and each other. You are invited to be both rigorous and creative, while always culturally respectful. Describe the non-Western principles or methods you are using, including the goals, procedures, and how these fit with client presenting problems. Provide references to demonstrate the empirical basis for your approach, while recognizing that Western forms of research may not apply. Describe the client’s initial response to your integration of non-Western methods, including any alignments or misalignments with cultural worldview. Identify any challenges you are experiencing or anticipate. How do you plan to meet these challenges? Distinguish, appraise, and integrate multiple sources of knowledge, including research-based knowledge and practice wisdom in order to improve practice, policy, and service delivery. Conclude your paper by reflecting on the importance of the principles and/or methods you have chosen to meet the needs of at-risk populations, citing research where possible, and to your own professional development.
