I think that these two are so closely related because they both involve learning the client’s background and principles and applying them to the case solution. One example of transculturality is having a client that is very religious and being a Social Worker that is an atheist. It would be very important for the Social Worker to use transcultuality to have a successful outcome and build report with the client. Cultural competence example would be for the Social worker to consider the clients religious background in order to form a resolution strategy to help the client.

Reply Quote Email Author Message Unread Mark as Unread Message Not Flagged Set Flag 1 month ago Kaila Adams RE: Discussion - Week 6 COLLAPSE Competence in social work has a very wide range. Being culturally competent is probably one of the biggest criteria. You might meet a client who may look like you on the outside, but they may have a totally different lifestyle. Being aware of a client's background would make a session go a long way. This also shows that you respect you client and took the time out to learn about their background. With being culturally competent, you also learn more about different types of people and see how people may operate from another background. With this field, you come across so many people so it's always a learning experience. Evidence based practice is also a big part of being competent. You have to be able to gather the information you recieve from clients and come up with a plan based on
their situation. A social worker must assess every client and put together a solution for what fits best. With using this practice, you must include the clients values, beliefs, and even their outside support system. This takes a lot of research, organization, and executing with a client to make sure it works in their favor. Robbins, S. P., Chatterjee, P., & Canda, E. R. (2012).

I see that you made mention of understanding others; is there also room to learn and understand oneself in this context, too?
