STRENGTHS, NEEDS, AND CULTURAL ASSESSMENT AND 2 Strengths, Needs, and Cultural Assessment and Treatment Plan This is a strengths, needs, and cultural assessment on Joy Martin. Joy is a friend whose name has been changed to protect her privacy. Family and Culture Joy’s family is very important to her. She grew up with a mother and father, two older sisters, and a younger brother in the projects. In Joy’s community, they hold the kids accountable for their actions and supported the parents. Joy would have dinners very Sunday, holidays, and have cook-outs on Saturday with her parents. She is supported by her grandfathers, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, and numerous cousins along with her church family. As Joy grew older and now has a family of her own and her childhood family began to get older as time goes by, Joy is distant. She is blaming the stress of her career and hating the fact that her family is getting older. Joy did not have a clear understanding about culture until she had to compare it to her husband’s. He grew up on a farm in Mexico. The naming of their children, the type of education, and the financial way money is involved with a lot of compromises and the acceptance of each other’s cultures. The only culture that truly matter was that her family taught her when she was growing up. The couple continues to clash numerous times on certain cultural issues.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
