Current research indicates that in order to counsel a group of people different from the mainstream, it is important to understand their unique worldview. This book defines the worldview of personal well-being for the Inupiat Eskimo in order to establish guidelines for counseling strategies. Strategies are based on the wisdom of village elders, who define personal well-being in order to help others develop counseling practices that can bridge contemporary problems with the traditions and customs of the Inupiat culture.

Psychologist Reimer contributes to the general field of multicultural counseling by describing the beliefs and values of her own people from northern Alaska, and suggesting appropriate intervention strategies to reduce the high rates of suicide, alcoholism, and depression. In particular, she delves into what the Inupiat consider personal well being. Among her topics are the historical background, taking responsibility, healers from the village, beliefs about the environment and the whale, and the importance of sharing. Annotation c.
