I would choose the assessment of sexuality IAT.The action plan that I would construct is to reassure myself that everyone has their differences and to put myself in their shoes in which I would not like to be discriminated myself. When my thoughts are getting generated while I speak to someone that are Gay, I would need to detach myself from prejudices consumptions and approach them as a normal human being. Understanding this will allow myself to not feel uncomfortable when I am assisting someone who has gay preference. Overall, equality is the key in a diverse workplace.
The 1920’s is traditionally viewed as an era for the freedom of sexual identity, but some critics such as Elise McDougald, argue that such freedoms raised unforeseen dangers for African American women (Monda 24) since being sexual was directly linked to satisfying racist notions (Scheper 682). In the eyes of white America, the African American ethnicity was teeming with ghosts of “barbarism” (Dawahare 23) that bled directly into the sexual lives of African American women, creating a racist expectation that all African American women are sexually “hypersexual, primitive, exotic, and always available.” In Larsen’s Quicksand, Helga Crane struggles with this racist and sexist “primitive” expectation (Scheper 682) as she attempts to explore her
It made me realize that whether I know it or not, when it comes to how I behave, I 'm most often thinking about what the social norm is in a certain situation. Not that this is a negative thing, but it 's interesting that these norms are not something anyone is born knowing, but something that is taught from birth. Social norms influence most of our daily interactions with others, and it 's also very intriguing seeing how others react when these norms are broken and someone acts out of the
Throughout this course, I learned a lot about myself, my family, and my peers who are also enrolled in this course. Although I enjoyed this class, it was very challenging for me in the beginning. As I mentioned above, I come from a troubled family. It was challenging for me to share my own life. I was uncomfortable.
We sometimes find ourself contemplating about who we are and what do we want in our life. As a gay man I have found myself stuck in many places, this is totally normal. We all try to find that perfect life but sometimes it involves barriers. Being wrong and owning up to what you want in life makes the ride easier. Thus being said, I would like to introduce myself with memories that shaped who I am and the struggles that I’ve achieved.
Before the presentation in class, I’ve had few experiences with the LGBTQ+ community. For myself living on cape cod, I would take trips every summer with my family to Providence town. Providence town is known to be the best-know gay summer resort on the east coast. The best part of being there was to see the pride these men and female people had on their social orientation. They were not scared to hide their true self.
As a counselor, I will instill in teachers that they need to find other ways of getting their students to learn instead of doing so many lectures they will need to be creative in finding other means of getting to learn across to students. Find graphs that student can learn
I can know the actual response from the client or somethings may occur when in the actual counselling session, it helps me to have an experience to try to handle those problems, I believed that it is good for my internship or future career. Observation about the Group Dynamics The general group dynamic I observed during the class practice and presentation was that no one is willing to do the counselor. I believed that acting a counselor is very challenging for us, people who act as a counselor need to use many skills but if act as a group member can do what counselor said only, so people usually do not to be the counselor. And we always use some games to decide who was the counselor fairly, this was the way that we solve the problem.
Heterosexual hegemony and the oppression of certain sexual relations, are imperative to the organization of class, State, gender, and race
On a personal note, the introduction to biblical counseling has provided me with a new perspective on my faith and my relationship with the Lord. The Lord has given me a heart for the lost and a new love for those around me. It has led me to reexamine my priorities and the purpose the Lord has for me. As I study the scripture, I see new opportunities to use my life to help lead others to Christ.
The second week of class really sparked up some great topics that I wanted to reflect on within my paper. From who is in the LGBTQ+ community, to if allies should be considered part of the community, and to multiple identities, I thought that I wanted to do a little more research on these topics and put my knowledge to the test. Some things I agreed with within class, and some things made me question myself and my beliefs. I also came across a few statements that I do not agree with, and I want to exercise my point along with being constructive with them. When it came to who was part of the LGBTQ+ community, I didn’t know there were so many different “parts” of the community.
• I liked the instructional format and structure of this course because it helped me learn in a more productive way than in my other classes. I really liked how we were required to do four reflection papers on the chapters and integration essays because I learned a lot more having to write about the subject in-depth. In addition, the role plays gave me a sense of what the chapter was about in real life situations by us having to act it
The American Psychological Association (APA) defines sexual orientation as being “distinguished by an enduring emotional, romantic, sexual or affectionate attraction to individuals of a particular gender.” It is comprised of three aspects which include, heterosexuality, sexual attraction to the opposite gender, bisexuality in which people are attracted to both men and women and finally homosexuality where the attraction is between the same gender. Sexual orientation and behavior is different because it involves how a person feels and their perception on sexuality. Sexual behavior on the other hand, is the act of sex does not always express true feelings. In certain cultures homosexuality is a part of life but it is not tolerated by several churches.
