Cultural Competency

When a professional forms a working relationship with a client of a different ethnic or cultural (or religious, socio-economic, etc.) background, the onus is on the professional to develop culturally-sensitive practices.  This involves not only working to understand some basic information about the client's culture, but also how the professional's own culture and upbringing may affect his or her ability to work with particular clientele.
