One is to discusses these competences with a counseling peer to receive his or her opinion on how to they have expand their competences. For instance, if she suggested that I might have to ask a student a specific question about his or her own culture to further my understanding then I would consider using that option.

    In this paper I shall try to explain myself on how I feel on the different topics of perceptions, attitudes, biases, and beliefs of culturally different groups to include other areas of my reactions to knowledge about values, practices, and experiences of individuals who are culturally different from me.

How might attitudes or perceptions influence your interaction with individuals who are culturally different from yourself? The attitude I have against working with others from a different culture appears to be…
