Cultural Values When Working With Diverse Groups
For this Discussion, you compare cultural values of three broadly defined groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, and Caucasians. You then consider how you would practice cultural awareness and sensitivity when providing services to members of each group.
- Review this week’s Learning Resources, and consider the cultural values of African American, Asian American, and Caucasian populations.
- Perform your own research on values or experiences of these populations that may impact work with them.
Post a comparison of the cultural values of African American, Asian American, and Caucasian populations. On what areas must a human and social services professional focus to ensure that he/she is being culturally aware and sensitive as it pertains to providing services to members of each group? Why?
