CULTURAL HUMILITY REFLECTION

Cultural humility is a key feature of effective and ethical practice. To fully respond to another’s culture, we have to remember that we view it through our own cultural lens. This assignment is intended to help you identify a culture with which you closely align, explore a culture that you have little knowledge of or exposure to, and evaluate how biases may influence your ability to effectively work with patients.Identify one culture that you most closely align with and describe it (religion, sexuality, age group, ethnicity, gender, et cetera).Identify one culture you are not familiar with and is very different from your own. Explain why you are interested in learning more about this culture. This example does not have to be from your work in ABA. Remember to always maintain confidentiality in your examples and discussion.Research and describe the one culture you are not familiar with that you identified in step 2. Use a credible source such as a website, journal article, or news article. A distinguished paper will use at least two resources with detailed descriptions of the culture.Evaluate how your cultural practices and identity shape your interactions with others (for example, having very strong religious beliefs and then working with a patient that is the antithesis of your views, or holding very deep views on equality and working with a white supremacist).Explain how you would work with clients of different cultures than you.
