Cultural Awareness – Techniques and Interventions

Cultural Awareness – Techniques and Interventions

Sue (2010) states, “Do not invalidate the experiential realities of diverse groups in our society. Be aware that privilege and power oftentimes make it difficult to see the perspectives of those who experience discrimination and prejudice in their day-to-day lives” (p. 60).

Consider Thomas and Schwarzbaum (2017) discussion of “Techniques and Interventions” and “Countertransference” in Chapters 13 and 16. Given Sue’s directive, what technique or intervention might you adopt in practice with a Muslim client or community and LBGT client or community? What countertransference issues may you confront in yourself?
