Assessment Description
Social
competence is a complex concept consisting of social, emotional,
cognitive, and behavioral skills. For example, one
might change social
interactions based on the situational perspective of another individual.
Cultural
competency enables organizations to work in cross-cultural situations
based on skills, attitudes, behaviors, and
policies. For example, it is
important to provide health care services that meet the needs of all
patients and addresses diversity issues.
In 500-750 words, address
why social and cultural competency is critical in the research process.
Be sure to address the
following prompts:
Define social and cultural competency
Evaluate the importance of these concepts in terms of social psychological research.
Give
an example of a social psychological concept that can be understood
from a cross-cultural perspective (e.g., social self, emotion,
attitudes, fundamental attribution error, etc.)
Why does cultural competency matter when researching a concept like the one you chose?
Discuss
problems that might occur if cross-cultural perspectives are neglected
in the research. Be sure to share an example(s). Use two to three
scholarly resources to support your explanations.
When writing in APA style, it is important that your
analysis is written in third person. Writing in third person helps with
clarity and conciseness throughout your paper. However, some instances
writing in first person is acceptable and should be used sparingly.
Solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should
be presented using APA formatting guidelines.
