Question Objective 1: Examine how unique cultural considerations are necessary in determining best practices and abiding by ethical guidelines when working with diverse groups. It is impossible to have a complete understanding of all unique cultural rules, values, and norms with which clients may come to the table. However, it is our ethical obligation as professionals to seek understanding when comprehension of how these norms and values affect client behavior and attitudes is absent or lacking. The following activity will allow you to practice the skill of recognizing how clients bring unique viewpoints, and how we as professionals may need to deviate from standard practice to acknowledge these differences and more effectively and ethically serve the client. Review Chapter 4 of your textbook. The table below is taken from Exercise 4.1 of the readings. The first row serves as an example of how you will complete the table.
