Topic: Cultures and Worldviews
Ohlschlager & Clinton (2002) note that “trying to be culturally blind or color-blind diminishes the importance of unique differences in the client’s personality and lifestyle” (617). In fact, it is considered unethical to treat every culture and ethnicity in a uniform fashion in counseling. Research now indicates that different approaches and techniques may need to be utilized for each culture.
Using your textbook and 1 research journal article of your choosing (use the Liberty University Online Library resources), answer the following questions about 1 of the following populations: African Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans, or Native Americans.
- What are some of the key psychosocial issues for this population?
- What are some of the central therapeutic approaches?
- Examine your own prejudices and worldviews. How might this population be difficult for you to work with? Are there any psychosocial issues this population constitutes that may evoke an emotional reaction in you? If you do not foresee any challenges, explain why.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
