Assignment: Carter Analysis
Professional Context
Understanding racial and cultural identity development is important for effective counseling and advocacy. According to Sue and Sue (2016), models of racial and cultural identity development help counselors to assess for within-group differences, better understand client reactions to counseling and counselors of similar or different racial or cultural backgrounds, and bring visibility to sociopolitical influences on identity development. Yet, Sue and Sue (2016) also address some limitations of these stage-based models. While the models may be helpful in conceptualization racial or cultural identity development, their stage-based nature be a restricted representation of a more organic and complex process that is also impacted by other biopsychosocial characteristics such as gender, class, and sexual orientation.
Scenario

Each member of the family has needs that are currently not being met but could be met or improved with the help of a counseling professional. You have been reviewing your case notes regarding your interactions with the relevant members of the Carter family and are composing a brief report of your most significant observations and recommendations for the Carter family to review with your assigned site supervisor.
