The question is, how can teachers promote multicultural competency in this multicultural society? Students need help to develop, multicultural competencies and multiple perspectives. Multicultural literature bridges the racial and class-based isolation that prevents the sharing of diverse experiences across racial, ethnic, class and cultural lines, (Hughes_hassell, S. 2013). The paradigms of race have been conflated with notions of ethnicity, class, and nation, because theories of race-of its meaning, its transformations, in the significance of racial events-have never been a top priority in social science, (Ladson-Billings, G.; Tate, W. F. 1995).
INTRODUCTION The ambition of this literature review is to shed light on Paul Celan, who is arguably the most prominent Jewish poet after 1945. More specifically, this review will examine the poet’s outspoken attitude towards the sense of loss, which will greatly influence his literary works. The following review consists of two sections, this is due to the topic’s difficult nature. The first section will focus on Celan’s relevant biography, whereas the second section will provide an insight into the poet’s struggle with the concept of loss. At the end of this analysis, the reader will have a coherent answer to the question: what is Paul Celan’s attitude towards the concept of loss and how is this integrated into his poetry?
The Cultural Proficiency Continuum provides a context, or frame of reference, which can describe organizations and individuals. Use the continuum to study singular events in the classroom or organization and to examine specific policies or behaviors. Use the range of points as starting places and benchmarks by which to assess progress and direction. Movement along the continuum will not be a fluid progression towards cultural proficiency, but it may create discussions that challenge accepted policies and practices.
I think it is a little of both. Being culturally competent is a process that is lifelong as well as the knowledge you gain by being in the field. Researching and gaining knowledge of the different cultures is something that I consider mandatory. Realistically, there is no way to be 100% multicultural competent because there are so many different cultures around us. This is why studying and learning about different cultures is an ongoing process because there is no end to what we can learn.
I would like to think of myself as a well rounded and worldly individual, I have travelled the to different parts of the world and have been exposed to different cultures and beliefs. I have had also had the opportunity to create lasting friendships with a variety of people of different races, ethnicities, socioeconomic status, and religious beliefs. The community in which I live is extremely diverse and has been dubbed "The Second Chance City", by Readers Digest due to its influx of foreign-born residents. We also are home to a struggling low income population that utilize the emergency department for almost all of their healthcare needs. Becoming a nurse and having the opportunity to work in such a diverse community has served to further my knowledge of the customs and beliefs of others, and how important cultural sensitivity truly is.
Despite the fact that intercultural competence has different terminology when referring to disciple or approach, it can also relate to the debate about global citizenship. Intercultural competence is seen as the capability to develop an objective knowledge, attitude, and skills that prompt visible behavior and communication that are both successful and appropriate in intercultural interaction. In other words, intercultural competence is a range of different skills; cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills that lead to communicate effectively and suitable with different surrounding and culture. Intercultural competence can also be broken down into three constituent elements seen as knowledge, skills, and attitude. (Deardorff, 2006)

Creating value through collaboration has been a topic of concern over the last 50 years as the spending in health care has increased. The goal is to provide quality and affordability and because of past efforts, enrollment increased drastically while it created a shortage of providers. Integrating behavioral and medical health has not been properly addressed due to stigmas and lack of education. Behavior health is more common today and costly. In efforts to integrate and improve patient outcomes and provider experiences there are many ways to achieve this goal such as train medical providers, train behavioral practioniers and embed behavioral providers in primary care settings.
Over the past four months, this course has been one of the most eye-opening experiences I have had during my first year of college. Although I have always realized the importance of being culturally competent in daily life, specifically healthcare, I was unaware of the many ways that cultural competence can be obtained. This class gave me the opportunity to view situations from a different perspective, especially through the weekly discussion boards and peer responses. Learning from classmate can teach more valuable lessons than listening to boring lectures or reading hundreds of pages in a textbook because it is easier to relate to experience rather than hypothetical situations. For example, one of the discussion boards asked us to detail
