In this assignment, you will create an individualized professional development plan that will address your own multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills that can be applied to your professional setting.

 

 

 

Tasks:

 

 

 

1: Identify a specific cultural group with which you will likely work with at least one of the following common characteristics: age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status.

 

2: Read at least two scholarly resources that match the specific cultural group you choose. Examples of scholarly resources include academic textbooks or professional, peer-reviewed journal articles.

 

3: Evaluate a professional role or function in which you will likely engage with this group. This might be work as a therapist, educator, clinical supervisor, etc.

 

4: Evaluate and summarize measures designed to assess multicultural competence and select one that you would use to assess your own competence. Provide a rationale for your selection.

 

5: Review scholarly literature that would increase your knowledge of the culturally diverse group you have identified given the professional role or function you have selected. Summarize three recent journal articles (e.g., published since 2000) that you found to be the most helpful in understanding this group.

 

6: Review scholarly literature that addresses cultural skill development. Select and evaluate three methods for skill development that you could employ in your current setting with your identified cultural group and your selected professional role or function.

 

7: Your final product will be a Microsoft Word document that is approximately 7–9 pages in length, and you will utilize a minimum of five scholarly sources in your research. Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation following American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines.
