When attempting to assess fully a new client, it is important to assess them within their cultural context. To stop there, however, could lead to overgeneralization and stereotyping.
In this Assignment, you implement an assessment toolâ€”the Culturagramâ€”that can assist you in developing a fuller understanding of diverse clients. It can also shed light on interventions and strategies that may be more successful and respectful than others.
By Day 7
Submit a 1- to 2-page paper and include the following:
- Based on the case study you selected for your Week 1 Discussion, explain the relevance of the Culturagram to assessment.
- Complete a Culturagram diagram (using Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint) depicting each of the 10 elements of the culturagram, using information from the case study.
- For any information missing from the case study, indicate two questions you would ask to gather the needed information and why these questions might be relevant for your assessment.
- Include the case study as reference, as well as any additional material used to formulate your assessment questions.
