Assignment 2: cultural competence and sensitivity

Not only is context important in determining whether an individual’s behavior meets the criteria for a mental disorder, but culture and family background can also be important factors. Some behaviors would clearly be “abnormal” in any culture or family, while other behaviors are not so clearly defined.

Using your textbook and the Argosy University online library resources, research the role of cultural norms in identifying mental disorders. Based on your research, respond to the following:

  • Why is culture an important consideration in the interview, assessment, and diagnostic process?
  • How might your own cultural, ethnic, or family values, rules, or traditions be misinterpreted as “abnormal” by someone from a dissimilar background? Give examples in your answer.

Write your initial response in 2–3 paragraphs. If you refer to research information, cite sources applying APA standards.

By Saturday, May 6, 2017, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through Wednesday, May 10, 2017, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses.
