- Definition of Culture - Skills for cultural competence when working with Eboni - A peer reviewed article to support noted skills My definition of cultural competence includes several elements. Cultural competence involves understanding what are the biological, psychological, sociological, and environmental components and factors to which the person/client identifies. It can be argued that, for a typical person, environment is the strongest indicator of someone’s culture. Many people associate race as culture. I see race only part of what defines the culture for an individual. While our legal system commonly uses race to define a person, the concept has more biological importance than social importance, (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018, p.468). In the book “The Biology of Race” by geneticist James King, cultural factors such as traditions, history, experiences, and personal training are the elements which individuals use to identify and associate with a designated group, (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018).
