Cultural baggage is when a person’s own behaviors or beliefs can hinder or interfere with someone else culture without them knowing it. An example is when I had an Amish patient and Amish women let the men do the talking and I would always try and talk to her forgetting about their culture because it was different than mine.
Arriving at a foreign country at the age of eleven years old was and exiting and yet intimidating experience. High buildings, wide roads, newer and nicer cars on the streets were some of the first things I noticed when I arrived to the city of Los Angeles CA. Living in a country where you were not born in could be difficult some times. Although Spanish is spoken at a grand scale in CA, it was difficult to communicate with and understand the teachers from my classes at the elementary level since all they spoke was English. Los Angeles is a city of great diversity, therefore it is believed to be the perfect place for any person arriving from another country to not feel like a foreign, such believe
After reading through the chapters there is one thing that really suck out to me and it came from Chapter 1. It was the idea that culture has really changed the way we look at our relationships. If you were to skim over the first few pages you would see how they are different now days compared to 50-60 years ago. It also talked about what might be causing the change in our culture. Even though some of our parents and grandparents don’t like to hear about this “new” style of relationships, this information is true and how generations are now dating.
My biggest concerns as an ECE candidate are my language barrier and my cultural background. I think Korea is a very conservative country because it seems that there are only one standard of success, beauty, and etc. It has been continuously changed as the generation changes, but still, there is not enough understanding of diversity. Since there is one standard for each area, most people think different with others means something is wrong. There is a lack of understanding and acceptance of differences, so many people compare themselves with others to identify themselves and judge others with their own perspective easily. I have lived in that culture for 30 years. If someone asks me, “What cultural competence specifically means to you,” I could
I. Four topics prevail in the study of cultural psychology: A. The experience of the interpersonal world during childhood being shaped through: 1. Function, size, composition, social density, and boundedness of the community; 2. Practices and strategies of parents (as well as alternative caregivers, if any); and 3. Type and quality of age-graded activities. B. The custom of the communication being
One main limitation that comes with this tool is the lack of multicultural aspect to it. It would be possible for a counselor to impose his or her own culture through interpreting the drawing based the culture. It is important to look at culture in which you are working in, to properly explain pictures children draw. Also, this test can potentially be subjective and have low validity.
Even though my parents lived here in Canada for more than twenty four years, my cultural background is a combination of Iraqi and Russian decent. At the age when I was capable of talking, my parents immediately taught me how to speak in Aramaic. Aramaic is an ancient language that was spoken by Jesus Christ. It is a combination of Hebrew, Arabic, and Latin. So I started talking in Aramaic and had no idea what English was. When I started first grade, I was put into ESL to improve my English in order to better communicate with staff and peers.
Others believe that my music is satanic but my “satanic music” actually motivate me to work faster. By thinking about my pursuits, the meals I like, and music I listen to, it has revealed what kind of person I truly am.
Institutionalized racism is sadly embedded within our culture and is the foundation of many organizations. Lawson and Sterling's comments were offensive to one race. I do believe what a person says and what they do are the only reliable indicators of what's truly inside of them. Sterling’s comments implied African Americans are less than other races and religions, good enough to have sex with and to own them on a team. However, they are not good in enough to be in public with or on social media. He is blinded by his own beliefs and does not appreciate that all team players as equals. Lawson devalued the affluent African Americans who can afford season passes. He implied that one race brought down the “value” of the

Several years ago I enrolled at California Lutheran University in the Marriage Family Therapy Master Program. It was during this journey as a new and older student that I was introduced to the words Cultural Bias and Cultural Proficiency. At the time I was not sure how I was to respond to questions such as what is your culture, what are your biases and how are you going to integrate those biases into the therapeutic setting? I now found myself questioning how is it that for all these years, no one ever told me that I because I was white, female, from middle- class America that I was not only entitled but privileged. If one does not see color differences, does that make them open-minded and accepting or does that mean they have color blindness? I never questioned my culture, my heritage or my underlying entitlement. When asked what my ethnicity is I always respond that I am Italian/French Catholic. To me “Italian” and “French” are words without meaning, as my ethnicity does not define who I am. At the age of eleven, my family moved from New York to California. Recently, I have begun to feel that I lost out knowing my family history and what it means to belong to a particular ethnic group. I missed being part of my family’s gatherings at holiday’s, marriages, births, and deaths. I lost connections and experiences that enrich one’s life; the foundation of whom you are and where you come from. Shared experiences between family members bind them
Culture defines people’s values, beliefs, and personal interests. Culture is important because it allows people to maintain a unique identity society. Many cultures have common interests, while others may have customs that differ greatly from that of another. Technology has had a huge impact on present day cultures. Many culture have been altered including my own, and some have been created due to the rise of technology. Cultures differ so greatly that someone belonging to one culture may not agree with the values of another, which then causes social and ethical issues. My culture shares many similarities with others around the world; most of which have connected more people in recent years than ever before. Cultural gaps, and lack of
(definition) Personal culture is the foundation of who we are. It is what makes us unique individuals. From the kinds of foods our culture indulges in, to the way our culture views certain aspects in life such as sports, freedom, and family. For certain individuals, family may be the most important aspect in their life, whereas others may not feel the same. The same can be applied to our personal culture traits. Some may view certain traits such as, perseverance, sacrifice, and commitment more valuable than others. This occurs because throughout our life we have experiences that shape which traits will mean the most to us. These experiences may be horrific or joyful and will ultimately have an impact on the rest of our lives. Throughout my eighteen years on earth I have had many experiences that shaped what I view to be important traits in my life. These traits have guided me through adversity and will be engraved in my heart, mind, and soul indefinitely. They are faith, love, and grit.

While I was on my missionary trip in Los Angeles, California, my group and I went to this informal Cajun style restaurant ran by all oriental employees. The name of the restaurant is The Boiling Crab located in Garden Grove, California on Brookhurst Street. We visited the restaurant on July 14, 2014 from 8 pm to10:30 pm, which was on a Monday night. The weather was around 60 degrees and windy around the time of sunset. The interior had a twist of modern and rustic look to it that kind of reminded me of Logan’s or Famous Dave’s, but was full of oriental staff and customers. I had a fun time experience such a different environment and cultural setting. In my reflection, I will be talking about reactions, my feelings and future development.
