Analysis and Assessment:

In an 8- to 10-page report, complete the following:

    1. The organization’s community:
      • What services do they provide?
      • Who uses the services?
    2. The organization’s location:
      • How accessible is your agency?
      • Must they walk or take public transportation?

  3. Summarize a few critical incidents when multicultural aspects were addressed (directly or indirectly).
  4. Explain how the activities and staff demonstrated multicultural sensitivity when identifying problems and responding to symptoms and help-seeking behaviors.
  5. Analyze how those critical incidents affected your cultural self-awareness and professional relationship, specific to the provision of culturally competent services.
