I believe one of the most important and unique factors to keep in mind when working with this population is the diversity that exists among the cultural group itself. To my knowledge there is not as many different sub-cultures that fall underneath other groups as there is in Asian Americans. Appleby et. Al., (2010) spoke about the ethnicities, culture, and value systems that Asians bring to the United States. He also spoke about being careful not to generalize the beliefs of one Asian Culture to the next. I think this is important to keep in mind when being culturally competent Social Workers. Whereas African Americans can tend to share many of the same values and beliefs as other African Americans, this seem not to be the case with Asian Americans. It’s important not to assume that because a Filipino family you work with has one belief that a Chinese family will share in that belief. Another factor that I believe is important to keep in mind is the stereotype that Asian Americans don’t struggle with some of the other issues that other cultures do. Appleby et. al., (2010) spoke about the common idea that Asian Americans are “model minorities”, who are hard working. “However, recent evidence suggests that a segment of Asian Americans tend to be underemployed and earn lower incomes. Kitano found that the median income of Chinese men in Los Angeles was lower as compared with Caucasian men in the same city (Appleby et. al., 2010, p. 153). This common misconception could be harmful when considering what cultures in our community need help and what programs would be helpful, Another key factor to keep in mind when working with Asian cultures is the emphasis put on honoring your family. Appleby et. al., (2010) spoke about the belief that a persons values and morals need to align with that of their family. “Traditionally, the structure of the Asian family is patriarchal, with communication flowing vertically from the parents to children, and from the husband to the wife. Children are taught their obligation to the family, and individual family members’ wishes are secondary to the good of the family as a whole” (Appleby et. al., 2010, p. 153) This is important to remember, especially when working with children and adolescence. As they enter a stage where they are working to figure out who they are, some of the things they begin to belief or identify with may be different than that of their family. This may create an internal conflict in then where they are torn between being who they truly are and honoring their family, As social workers we should be aware of this and be ready to be there and support them.

When working with Asian American clients, it is important to acknowledge the importance of family and traditions within their culture. There is a significant value of education and family is an integral part of life, especially with immigrant clients who often migrate to the states to provide better futures for their children. The term “Asian” is sort of a blanket term for individuals who have origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent i.e. Cambodia, China, India, Japan, etc. While there are similarities among these groups, such as the importance of family and traditions, Asians are “quite diverse in terms of their culture, language, customs, religions, etc.” (Appleby et. al., 2010).
The group I researched was individuals living with disabilities and the effects of ableism. I would say the similarities between that group and Asian Americans is the historical lack of resources available to both groups. Both groups have had little resources within the social work field that were specific to their needs, often times only having access to resources in larger metropolitan areas. “Historically, social work agencies have given little special attention to Asian American clientele, and social service resources for Asians, typically, are available only in large metropolitan areas” (Appleby et. al., 2010). I think this is something really important to consider when working with this group, in order to understand their needs. Fortunately, social workers have been increasingly paying more attention to the Asian cultural and social factors that impact them. When working with Asian American clients, I intend to utilize not only traditional interventions, but use very culturally sensitive approaches as well in order to respond in an effective way. Understanding Asian American clients’ history with immigration, culture, and belief systems is vital in intervening effectively.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
