For this Discussion, your fellow learners have created a presentation that contextualizes practice with African Americans, Native Americans, and Latinos. After you view their presentation, use your post to discuss one or more of the following:
- What are the key factors that need to be addressed when working with African American clients? With Native American clients? With Latino clients?
- Are there similarities among these three groups?
- Are there similarities between any of these groups and the groups that you researched?
- How would you incorporate the key factors into your plan for working with clients from these groups?
