Example text

Inherited characteristics exert minimal to no influence on one's mental health View Answer 1. D Inherited characteristics are considered a factor that can affect one's mental health and subsequently lead to mental illness. Life circumstances, including environmental stresses, also can impact one's mental health. If these circumstances are negative, the person is at risk for depression, substance abuse, or other mental health disorders. Relationships between individuals who either love or refuse to love one another may lead to poor nurturing.

Learning about acceptable and expected behavior in one's culture occurs from earliest childhood through socialization. Children acculturate more quickly than adults as they are exposed to other cultures through schooling. They also learn cultural characteristics as they associate with others. The family has the first and most profound influence on the development of traditional values and practices. However, the community, school, church, government, and media also play significant roles. For example, loss and grief are painful for all individuals, yet how we express and process this experience depends almost completely on culture (DiCicco-Bloom, 2000).

Self-Awareness Prompt Think of an example of when you first encountered a client from an ethinic or age subculture different than yours. What were your attitudes or expectations about this client? How did the client differ from what you expected? In cultural care accommodation/negotiation, the nurse adapts nursing care to accommodate the client's beliefs or negotiate aspects of care that would require the client to change certain practices. For example, a Native American client may wish to have a tribal healer visit him in the hospital and perform a healing ceremony.
