Conduct a cultural self-assessment
In order to understand culture and cultural diversity, it is important that you understand your own culture and heritage. Using the tables that are located throughout Chapter 2 of your textbook (one for each domain of the Purnell Model for Cultural Competence, Table 2-1 to Table 2-12), answer these questions as they relate to you. Remember, you are answering these questions from your personal perspective, so there is no right or wrong response. Explain why you do or do not adhere to the dominant cultural practices and beliefs of the ethnic group(s) with which you primarily identify. Although the information on this self-assessment paper is strictly confidential, if you do not wish to self-disclose a specific area from the Organizing Framework, indicate so instead of just not addressing it. You are not required to provide citations/references in this paper. Attention should be paid to grammar, spelling, and punctuation. This assignment must be in an APA formatted essay.
