Etic assumes universal elements are the same across all groups in things such as discrimination, empowerment, communication, and acculturation. Emic emphasizes specific characteristics of each cultural group that can have impact on the counseling process. Early teachings in multicultural counseling focused on the emic perspective but the best approach is a mixture of both etic and emic perspectives. We must recognize that unequal treatment and discrimination affect all of us. Cultural minorities experience discrimination as much as ethnic minorities do because of the things about themselves that they can not change.
Looks, grades, and friends separate these students, therefore creating a divide between them before they even have an opportunity to know one another for who they truly are. The message revealed in this film is clear and simple. Despite their outside differences, they all deal with the same hardships and insecurities growing up. Ultimately displaying how people who seem to come from different worlds are more alike in the end. The Breakfast Club depicts the characters ' fears, hopes, and dreams while asking the question, who are they?
Unlike Brave New World, social classes or groups occur naturally in today’s society. For example, in a school, students are put into different social groups for numerous reasons: intelligence, level of creativity or artistic ability, physical appearance, athleticism, or the outsiders who are not a part of the idealistic society. Once someone is categorized into a group or multiple groups, he or she will likely remain there for the rest of a school career. These groups, while not as uniform as those in Brave New World, are still able to prolong stability. Stability is maintained because of the stereotypes created about divergent groups.
The Breakfast Club is not in fact a movie about bacon 'n eggs. It’s a coming of age film about five different teenagers all linked together by one common element, Saturday detention. At first, they are all close-minded and judgmental of each other until they come to realize they may be from different circles of friends but are not so different in the end. This film is still very relatable to this day. Everyone in this film is in his or her own societal bubbles, but come to understand they are all facing the same problems.
"The Breakfast Club" is a coming of age film directed by John Hughes in 1985, where five very different adolescent students are assigned to Saturday detention, where they figure out that each of them fits a particular stereotype, they all have the same characteristics but through their own experiences they become who they are today. In this movie Claire Standish is the princess, Alison Reynolds is the freak, John Bender is the criminal, Brian Johnson is the nerd and Andrew Clarke is the jock. At first no one’s knows each other, nor do they want to, but slowly through experience they have together they slowly have to get to know one another. They quickly realise that they have a lot more in common then they first imagined. Not one of them of them communicates well with their parents, all are under pressure from their peers, and they all dread their future, they fear they might grow up to follow
When it comes to student misbehavior, most schools have long practiced a basic system of crime and punishment, isolating the perceived “offender” through detention or suspension. Although when giving students suspension it does give them time to reflect, school suspension is not a good punishment because, when students are taken out of school for a couple of days they miss assignments and do not take responsibility for their conduct, when students go to in-school suspension they do not receive the day’s class work, work is completed incorrectly, and/or students use time to sleep, and all in all, the students do not get the correct help they need to overcome the problem whereas if the student was treated with a system called restorative justice, the student could learn to not go through the same situation. When students are taken out of school for a couple of days they miss assignments and do not take responsibility for their conduct. Think of this for example, Thomas is suspended and taken out of school for a couple of days,
John Hughes’ 1985 movie, The Breakfast Club, offers uncountable examples of the ideologies of interpersonal communication. Five high school students: Allison, the kook, Brian, the brain, John, the criminal, Claire, the princess, and Andrew, the jock, are required to devote the day in Saturday detention. At the end of the day, they discover that they have more in mutual than they ever grasped. I will begin by choosing a scene from the movie and using it to explain what interpersonal communication is. The interpersonal transaction I chose to isolate was the scene where we see Bender and Claire going through each other’s wallet and purse.
I chose The Breakfast Club because it is a classic movie that I never get tired of. This movie deals with five students in high school who are all in a Saturday detention. The faculty member is cruel to them and they just try to have fun while serving detention for eight hours on a Saturday. They do not know each other, but by the time detention is over, they all leave knowing that they are not like their parents. This movie has six main characters, all of who are either in high school or teach in school.
I would notice my peers looking at me and treating me differently, usually from a distance because I was not of the same race as them. At a young age, I understood that children would sometimes bully each other once in awhile, but that did not happen to me. The act of bullying instead was in a more intense form of what we would call it discrimination, which is an act of unjust or unfair due to a difference of people (Replogle 2018). Where discrimination began to play in my everyday life in school for about three years. Everywhere I went, I encountered those who would called me names and tried to mimic my Asian eyes.
Stereotype, when used as a transitive verb, by definition means “to believe unfairly that all people or things with a particular characteristic are the same.” In other cases, when it is used as a noun, it is defined as “an often untrue belief that many people have about all people or things with a particular characteristic. In our society today, stereotype is a type of prejudgment one assumes about a person wherein they categorized him/her into a group where other people possess a certain characteristic or trait that he/she shares as well. In some aspect belonging to a certain group do a person some good. Sometimes having these people in your life improves your way of living. You are surrounded by your friends that actually care and support you and you are accepted.
