Middle Eastern cultures. You explored the impacts of ethnicity, religion, gender, geographical location, and trauma on clients. For this discussion question, think about how the complexity of culture influences a client’s worldview and acculturation process. Also, spend time thinking about having a refugee status in the United States prior to posting your discussion response.
In a minimum of 200 words, post to the Discussion Area your response to the following:
- Describe how the Kurdish population is different from other Arab cultures.
- Describe how Kurdish culture is a great example of cultural complexity.
- Identify how cultural experiences (inside and outside of his or her own culture) may affect a Kurdish client’s worldview and acculturation process.
- Identify at least one way that counselors can advocate for the populations discussed in this module.
Support your rationale and analysis by using at least two resources from professional literature in your response. Professional literature may include the NLU online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (websites ending in .edu or .gov).
