The way forward and understanding cultural factors


Select one scenario from the Responding to Ethical and Legal Issues – Case Study multimedia presentation and discuss the client’s identity. 

  • Describe the client’s stage in life, gender dynamics, race or ethnicity, economic status, et cetera. 
  • Consider your results from Exercise 3.6, “Appraise Your Ability to Work With Diversity,” on page 25 in your exercise manual. (You completed this assessment during Unit 1.) Do you believe you would be prepared to work with this client and demonstrate cultural competence?
  • What cultural factors would be important to keep in mind as you meet with the client?
