Cultural Competence Profile – My Self-Assessment
Consider your responses to the 34-item self-assessment you completed in the studies section of this unit and compare them with your earlier ethnic identity assessment measurement from the Universal Ethnic Identity Scale (UEIS), 18 survey questions taken in Unit 1. Summarize:
- Your understanding of your racial and ethnic identity.
- Your pride and shame in your racial and ethnic identity.
- How your racial and ethnic identity influences your cultural awareness of other groups, your cultural sensitivity to other groups, and your cultural action or advocacy for other cultural groups.
Respond to the posts of at least two learners. Compare and contrast the key aspects of their racial or ethnic identity with your own assessment of your racial and ethnic identity.
This activity will help you achieve the following learning components:
- Discuss the process of developing a personal racial or ethnic identity.
