Applying what you learned in this chapter, reflect on your life experiences and all the influences on your identity (culture, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion and spirituality, life stage, family of origin, abilities/disability, and stress/demands on your attitudes/behavior). Respond to the following
1- What truisms about money, success, and relationships did you learn in your family?
2- Identify at least three areas of potential bias based on your identity and discuss how these influences may impact your clients.
For question #2 from professor (this assignment required you to examine your upbringing, truisms, and potential areas of bias. Most of you did not answer the second prompt correctly. You provided responses about how people might look at you with bias, but that’s not what the question was asking. Instead, it was asking you to think about what biases you might have about others. As a clinician, you will want to challenge misconceptions that you hold toward people or groups who are different and then ask yourself, “If I were to see an injustice happening, how far am I willing to go to rectify the situation?” It’s important for us to examine our biases NOW before we are working with a client.)
