For this assignment, you need to select a culture and write a report on its traditions and how they might affect the counseling process (for example, consider things such as belief systems, communication styles, and rituals surrounding milestones such as birth, marriage, and death).
You should look for information on other cultures from scholarly sources such as peer reviewed journal articles (no more than 5 years old).
Create a report on your findings. In your report, answer the following questions:
What types of cultural traditions did you find related to this culture that might be important to know about in the counseling process?
How might these traditions affect the counseling process?
Sometimes a counselor finds a client’s cultural beliefs or traditions to be in conflict with the counselor’s own beliefs or traditions. What steps should a counselor take to resolve the conflict, especially if referral to another provider is not an option?
