I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
You must select a culture that you are less familiar with in order to “stretch” and
challenge yourself. This experience will have the most value if you choose an
experience you have never had before. An example includes attending a
festival/celebration from a specific culture. Make sure the event, activity, or community
is one that is open to non-group members. You must actively attempt to interact with
community members, rather than be a passive observer. It helps to have a cultural
broker who can explain the traditions and beliefs to you. Remember, you are walking into someone else’s “home”—therefore, do not go in a
large group or be voyeuristic. Submit documentation that provides verification of immersion experiences
when you submit your reflection papers. (VIRTUAL EVENTS SUGGESTIONS HAVE BEEN GIVEN)
At the conclusion of the activity, you will write a three-page reflection paper that
discusses your personal reactions to the immersion experiences (see below for
questions to consider). I am not interested in a recap of the day where you simply tell
me step by step what you did and what happened. While some of this may be
necessary at times, I want the bulk of your reflection to be about what you learned and
how you intend to take that information and do something with it in the future.
Reflections that include surface-level comments such as “this was amazing” or “I
learned a lot,” lack a critical analysis and will not receive full points. Also, be careful to
avoid “exoticizing” the community you immersed yourself in.
Questions to consider in your reflection: What did I observe and experience in myself
when being with this population? What did I observe as evidence of surface culture
versus deep culture (see Comas-Diaz text for examples)? Who am I in relation to this
culture (i.e., In what ways am I an insider/outsider?) How will this experience impact me
as a clinician? How will I integrate this experience into my clinical work? How will this
inform my therapeutic approach? Was this experience consistent or inconsistent with
the theories we have learned in class and in our reading?
