Working With Culturally Diverse Groups
Research current information about the demographics of your own state. List the main minority groups and (if applicable) specific cultural subgroups living in your state, as well as living within your own part of the state.
Select two of these groups and identify the steps you would take to become more knowledgeable about working with persons from these cultures. Include at least two articles or books specific to each culture in your references.
What are some of the questions you have or issues you might encounter while working as a counselor with persons from these groups?
Read the posts of your peers and respond to at least two. Reflect on the concerns that were identified and consider what you may add to a peer’s understanding. What other steps could you share to help increase knowledge or build culturally relevant skill sets for counseling with minority and cultural subgroups?
