Application Assignment: Culturally Competent Assessment
Counseling has a history of perpetuating bias through diagnosis and assessment. In this Application Assignment, you apply cultural competence to a counseling assessment.
For this Application Assignment, review the case study “The Case of Mrs. Hudson” and the description of culturally relevant assessment in the course text Addressing Cultural Complexities in Practice. Consider the case study in terms of a culturally competent diagnosis. Think about the issues involved in culturally competent assessment and their impact on counseling.
With the case study in mind, in a 2- to 3-page paper:
· Develop a culturally relevant assessment of symptoms of the client in the case study. Focus on the concerns specific to Mrs. Hudson’s culture.
· Summarize the major issues in conducting a culturally competent assessment and explain how they might affect the process and progress of counseling.
Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation.
Note: Sue and Sue (2013) have not updated their text with the new emphases on culture and gender as presented in the DSM-5. Walden is working to provide updated research given the changes in the DSM-5as materials become available. However, please note that the DSM-5 provides a section about client factors related to culture and gender that could impact diagnoses. Please refer to this section in the DSM-5(pp. 749–759) as a reference for this Assignment. These additions provide a stronger opportunity for clinicians to assess their clients more thoroughly than in the previous DSM-IV-TR.
