It influences social care work, because when we are caring for someone we have to be able to recognise that everybody is different and we must not impose our preferences to them. The personal beliefs should be respected and encouraged. Choice We need to be aware that each service user has the right to make choices and also how they can benefit from this. It is important both physically and mentally for a service user to make choices each day. It has an influence on social care work, because we need to make sure that we are communicating well, and listening to the individual's wishes and preferences, and we need to remember not to dothings without discussing it with service user.
Human service workers need to be prepared for all situations, and have feedback on how well their programs are working. Typically, the next step in the program planning process is to evaluate the program. It is necessary to have a program evaluation because it brings the results to light. In order to meet the well defined goals and objectives of program planning, it is essential for human service programs to have feedback on the effectiveness of the services they are providing so they can continue to satisfy their consumers. Program evaluation is needed so workers can remove anything from their program that was not needed, or add more attention to another direction of the program.
There is no doubt counsellors have to be aware of the complications when it comes to culture (Pederson & Ivey 1993). Within a culture people develop patterns of behaviour that they have learnt. Cultural identity differences can be perceived between themselves and other groups and can also be based on personal preferences i.e. Language, religion, lifestyle, Birthplace or even life experiences. There is a danger that if counsellors minimise cultural differences they are likely to impose the larger multicultural groups similarities upon the smaller multicultural groups and uphold one group as being more important than the other.
2.3 Describe how own values, belief systems and experiences may affect working practice? • Everyone has different values/beliefs/preferences what you believe in, what you see as important, acceptable or desirable is an essential part of who you are. • React positively to people who share your values and less warmly to people who have different priorities. • When you develop friendships, it is natural to spend time with people who share your interests and values. • Professional relationships you develop with people you support are another matter; you are required to provide the same quality support for all, not just for those who share your views and beliefs.

There are numerous arguments why screeds should be personalised. Personalising an induction for a client and focussing it on their favoured modality and whether they prefer an authoritarian or permissive technique can help them feel more at ease with their surroundings. By starting off with the clients preferred modality you can create a safe and restful space for them to begin with, but, it is important to make sure you use there all of there senses in their induction to create a more rounded and fulfilling experience. Although an all round screed using all the senses is important, it is not the only facet to consider as we need to build up a rapport with the client. This view is supported by Diamond 1984 cited in Lynn & Rhue (1991) “One of the most salient features of the hypnotic situation is the relationship between the subject and the hypnotist” This shows that building a connection with the client is evidently important and can open up more pathways into the clients
Every person is unique and is individual so in order to promote equality it is important to treat everyone fairly. Each person has their own needs, wishes and preferences so it is imperative that these are respected. “Diversity” is another way of explaining “differences” and it’s important for us to realise that although often people may have many things in common with each other, they can also at the same time be very different and unique in many ways. We need to understand and recognize those differences, moreso than just simply tolerate them, so that we can embrace and value those people which will in itself produce a more conducive environment for all. The result of this should lead to “inclusion” which is about creating a sense of belonging, feeling included, feeling respected and valued, even though it may be that that person lacks some advantages.
Cultural Influences on Context: The Educational Setting Language, Culture, and Communication In this chapter the author Amber Laurin focuses on the importance and the influence that the educational setting has on intercultural interaction. The view of and approaches to education are valuable sources when it comes to culture. Different cultures have different approaches to formal learning and knowledge in general, and by studying them one can gain information about the background of people from those cultures. It is important to know, that however different cultures may seem, in their core they are very similar because they all share elements such as social structure, needs, and desires, thus their educational systems teach the same thing – culture and how it passes on from one generation to the other. Our culture shapes our education, and that is why instructors need to be aware of it and to try to be effective communicators, especially in multicultural environments such as ours.
Differing qualities in our social order helps us develop as people and remind us to keep an open personality towards the distinctive methods for living. Differences advertises more tolerance and being additionally tolerating of different societies. We look into changed parts of the world, and can even adjust some of their traditions towards our own particular life. We can take in distinctive methods for cooking, style, and music/excitement. Assorted qualities opens our brains towards distinctive societies, and without it, we might be encased in our own particular world and feel that it was the best way to live.
