    Abstract

    This article proposes a self-relation coordination counseling model for contemporary Taiwanese clients. The model is based on an analysis of the interpersonal disturbances of people suffering from conflict resulting from the coexistence of a Confucian cultural heritage and Western values. The goal of the proposed model is to help clients experiencing conflict between personal interests and social harmony to develop a balanced psychosocial homeostasis by coordinating the self and related others. Major counseling tasks and methods are delineated and discussed.
