Assessment is continuous throughout the nursing process collecting subjective and objective data to identify individual needs (Webber & Kelly, 2014). Communication underpins the formation of the therapeutic relationship (Whitehouse, 2006). The learning disability nurse must be competent in receptive and expressive communication and interpersonal skills to communicate effectively with individuals with learning disabilities who have cognitive, communication, and sensory impairments, adhering to reasonable adjustments (Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists, 2013; NMC, 2010; Equality Act, 2010). Historical information should be collected; assessment of emotional development can identify childhood experiences that could lead to arrested emotional development, attachment disorders, psycho social masking and difficulties with trust (Beckett, 2013; Frankish, 2013; Bowlby, 1982). Having knowledge of this area can provide rationale for interventions and support the development of the therapeutic relationship (Larson et al., 2011).
learning and personal development. These conclusions gave birth to ‘schools do not make a difference’ interpretation of their work. Later, theorists started focusing on the school environment. Eccles et al. (1993) developed a person-environment fit theory of school engagement.
The authors present the Supervisor Multicultural Competence Inventory (SMCI), a comprehensive framework of multicultural supervision competencies. The authors organized the SMCI guidelines for developing competencies into six domains. The first domain is supervisor-focused personal development and the second domain is supervisee focused personal development. The third domain is conceptualization, which refers to promoting an understanding of the impact of individual and contextual factors on clients’ lives. The fourth domain is skills, which refers to practicing relevant and sensitive interventions when working with diverse clientele.
Pederson (1991) suggests that culture can be defined in a very broad sense to include not only demographic differences (age, gender, place of residence, sexual orientation) but also status variations (social, educational, economic), affiliations (formal and informal), and ethnographic variables such as nationality, religion, ethnicity and language. This author discusses some of the problems and benefits of using such a broad definition but believes that the broad definition ultimately aids the counsellor. If this broad definition is used it is clear that multicultural therapy is valid for all counselling relationships - it is a generic approach to helping people not an exotic one! He therefore suggests that multicultural therapy is a fourth force to be added to the three traditional helping orientations i.e. the psychodynamic approach, the existential – humanistic approach and the cognitive approach.
With an honor code enacted trust between teacher and student will form. A situation like the one depicted in source A would not happen. Source A is stating the irony of saying that spycams improve honor codes. There is no trust in that honor system.

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) With that being said, knowledge is my substantial weakness while skills and attitude are my strengths regarding intercultural competence.
Bradford Brown and Jeremy P is an article that provides multiple studies, including their own, on how parenting styles impact who an adolescent associates with and how they communicate with their parents about their peers. Many parents feel that they have a right to know what goes on during their child’s life. Bradford and Brown state that these categories include: social activities with peers, features of specific relationships, and characteristics of their peers. They found that parent’s gain more information about their adolescents life when they have a trusting and well-developed relationship with their child and set rules about their peer interactions. Parental monitoring has also shown that there have been positive changes in drug use and risky behaviors.
Several factors could have a positive or negative influence on the developing of a person’s identity development. Identity development is the process of exploring and understanding that one is as an individual and as a member of a group and integrating these different dimensions to make sense of past, present, and future experiences, as well as managing different contexts. The path of the development of one’s identity and career development impact a person in young adulthood. It is helpful to go back and reference issues of identity development when studying career-making decisions and career development. A part of identity development is having the ability to express goals, the ability to develop plans, and long-term commitments.

This style of communication can be vastly different from middle-class Caucasians who communicate with a future pretense (1998). Culturally Relevant Interventions When working with Latino client, it’s important to remember that their world view may differ from the world view of the counselor. In order for treatment to be effective and successful counselors need to choice culturally relevant methods and interventions that are going to match the clients world views (Carlson & Carlson, 2000). Alderian therapy is a method that may work well for Latino clients, as the approach forces on the person in a social context (2000). In Alderian therapy, counselors explores a persons social environment and cultural background and what it means to the client (2000).
