Impact of History on Worldview

Deepening your knowledge of racial and/or ethnic groups and culture in general requires an understanding of the influences that have led to a particular group’s worldview. Furthermore, how does this worldview influence the attitudes, behaviors, and values of members of that group? History plays a significant role in shaping the worldview of all cultural groups. Ultimately, as a counselor, understanding these influences assists in developing your cultural competence.

For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the history of each group and how this history has impacted the worldviews of each group’s members. Then, select one of these ethnic groups to focus on for this Discussion.

With these thoughts in mind and using a specific example from one of the ethnic groups from this week’s readings:

Post by Day 3 a summary of one aspect of the history (such as an event or a shared group experience) of the ethnic or racial group you selected. Explain the impact of this historical aspect on the worldview of the group’s members. Then, explain how their worldview and current perceptions may influence the attitudes, beliefs, values, and behaviors of group members. How might individuals and families negotiating biracial (i.e., identifying with two or more racial/ethnic groups) or transracial (i.e., transracial adoptee or adoptive family, etc.)  identity be impacted by the historical worldview of these intersecting identities?

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
