Writing Question

Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing project and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

The goal for this assignment is to have you review Hays’ model (chapter 2) for understanding cultural or social identity, as well as explore your own identities both as an individual and as a potential professional in a psychology field. By using the ADDRESSING acronym as a guide, you can become more familiar with the multiple group memberships and cultural identities of yourself and others. As we know from Hays’ model, identity is multi-factorial. How one sees oneself and one’s power and privilege are related to numerous cultural identities. • In reviewing the ADDRESSING model, o Select 5 of the 9 identities below to discuss in detail. o Describe how they relate to you AND your work with clients or students in your future career. For each of the 5 identities you select, use the questions below to help you explore your identities in detail.

Age and generational influences: When you were born, what were the social expectations for a person of your identity? Do you identify with a particular generation (e.g. baby boomers, Gen X or Y, second-generation immigrants, etc.)? How have your values and worldview been shaped by the social movements or influences on your generation (e.g. the Great Depression, World War II, the Vietnam War, women’s movement, Stonewall, Americans with Disabilities Act, civil rights movement, social media, an economic downturn, political events in another country)?

2. Developmental or other disability: Do you identify as someone living with a visible disability, or a nonvisible disability (e.g. chronic pain, psychiatric or learning disability)? If no, has your personal or professional life been affected by others with disabilities (e.g. friend, family member, partner, or coworker with a disability)? How has disability status – either your disability or that of someone else in your life – affected your life and opportunities? 3. Religion & spirituality: Were you brought up in a religious or spiritual tradition? Do you identify with a religion or have a spiritual practice now? How were your values and goals shaped by your religious or non-religious upbringing?

4. Ethnic & racial identity: What do you consider your ethnic or racial identity? If you were adopted, what are the identities of your biological and adoptive parents? How do other people identify you? Are these the same? Are there ethnic or racial differences within your family?

5. Socioeconomic status: what social class did you grow up in, and what do you consider your socioeconomic status now? When you were in high school, what were the educational and work opportunities available to you?

6. Sexual orientation: Do you identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or heterosexual? If you are heterosexual, do you have a family member or friend who is gay? Is your family accepting of a gay member?

7. Indigenous heritage: Do you belong to a Native tribe or nation, for example, Native Hawaiian, First Nations, Alaska Native, or American Indian? Did you grow up on or near a reservation or Native community? Do you seek to connect or reconnect with your Native community?

8. National origin: Are you a U.S. citizen, an international student, or an immigrant? Were you born in the U.S.? Do you (and your parents and grandparents) speak English as a first language? How has your nationality affected your life and opportunities?

9. Gender: What were and are the gender-related roles and expectations for you in your family of origin and current family, in your work setting, and relation to your other cultural identities? How have these expectations affected your choices in life? • After reflecting on these identity.

After reflecting on these identities further, please discuss how these factors could impact your work as a provider with others who have different identities.
