Imagine you are a counselor evaluating a Japanese American woman, aged 30. She is a first-generation American and moved to the U.S. just 2 years ago. She has been referred to you by the local Emergency Room physician for suspicion of self-harm. Upon your interview with her, you find that she is unwilling to speak.

What steps might you take to facilitate communication, in order to make an accurate assessment? Cite scholarly literature or authoritative journal articles to support at least one strategy to your proposed approach.
