Post 1 introduction | HHS 320 Cultural Awareness in the Human Services | Ashford University

Please post a brief bio on the first day of class. Respond to at least three of your classmates’ bios. In constructing your bio, consider the mnemonic, GARREACS (gender, age, race, religion, ethnicity, ability [mental, physical, and cognitive], class, sexual orientation) to describe the uniqueness of “me” and how this impacts my ability to work with anyone who is different than me. In 250-300 words, think about the questions: Who am I? Who are you? How are we the same? How are we different? Include reference to time orientation, language, unearned privilege, nature orientation, and cultural views on partner violence and use of substances. Support your comments with two references and respond to at least two of your classmates.
