CULTURAL COMPETENCY AND RESEARCH ANALYSIS

This is the first component of your course project. For this assignment, you will demonstrate your ability to apply psychological principles and research findings to a situation related to culture, ethnicity, and diversity.

Note: In this assignment, you begin your project work on the case study that you chose in the Week 2 discussion. You will use this case throughout your course project.

Instructions

After completing the assignment preparation study in Week 2, write a 6–8-page paper in which you examine three main areas as they relate to the specific case you have selected:

  • Theory: Application of theory to the specific case.
  • Research: Understanding of research methods and application of findings.
  • Cultural Competence: Knowledge and application of cultural competency skills.
Theory
  1. Select a minimum of two theories that are relevant to the case you chose. The theories should help explain concerns for the client, such as developmental or contextual issues. Analyze how those psychological theories point toward potential solutions for a problem.
    • Of the theories you select, make sure that at least one provides a framework for understanding the cultural issues between the individuals in the case.
  2. Explain how these theories help us to understand the individual client or patient in the case and how they can direct the professionals in the case to a potential solution.
    • Note that theory can help us understand where the individual (client or patient) is in her development. For example, psychosocial theory would help explain individual development, or ecological systems theory would help explain the impact of environmental interaction on the individual.
Research
  1. Select two original research studies that help us understand the situation in the case you selected and potentially lead to interventions in the case.
    • Cite the research studies, using APA style.
  2. Explain the research design and methods used in the research studies. What type of research was conducted, who was studied, and how?
  3. Describe the researchers’ findings.
  4. Next, explain how the findings in the studies relate to the case you selected. How do these findings help us formulate a potential solution/intervention in the case?
Cultural Competency
  1. Use a model of cultural competency to explain the competencies needed for working in a culturally diverse environment.
  2. Apply those cultural competencies to assist the professional in the case to help resolve a particular culture-related issue.
  3. Construct a plan to develop your own professional cultural sensitivity. (For this section you may write in first person).
    • Explain how the guidelines you developed for the professional will help guide you in your future work as a professional.
    • Discuss some steps you could take to further your own growth in cultural competencies.

Note: Be sure you review the scoring guide to understand how you will be graded. Work toward the distinguished level for each scoring guide criterion.
