Cultural identity is referred to a vital notion of belongingness in individuals or a group of individuals where it is also defined to be a crucial part of self-conception in people. It is along with yet another conceptual framework of self- perception in people where it is mainly accompanied by the ethnicity, social class, nationality, religion, generation or the locality in which they are residing (Abrams, Maxwell, Pope and Belgrave, 2014). It is basically to specify a distinct set of social group where they possess their own cultural belief's. Cultural identity is reflected to be an important consideration for all social classes where it tends to preserve the historical percept of the individual by together rendering them a prior sense of belongingness in their own set of area.
The term of cultural recognition is fundamentally established in case a group of individuals are continually pursuing an identical norms of their society along with a similar set of behaviour. This also tends to resemble with their earlier generations as a way of preserving their historical features. However, cultural is significantly made up of a dynamic composition with different set of values, inherent assumptions, beliefs, behaviour and attitude that are commonly shared by the group of individuals (Varney, 2014). Culture is therefore interpreted to be a behaviour that is usually reflected at the time of group arrival with some unexpressed and unscripted norms with some elementary standards to work together. A complexed stance of culture due to its dynamical trait is a major concern that will be showcased in the present study to detect the ongoing cultural changes in the society that often takes place where it becomes difficult to address its factual kinetics.
Diversity and cultural competence are the two foremost consideration of individuals to survive in today's wide-ranging society that reflects distinct origination of people residing over here. It is mainly in context to two vital events that has necessitated a prior need of cultural competence. The foremost circumstance is with reference to the movement of civil right that initially started in the early period of 1950's. This event in turn has involved varied communities from Africa and America that also included women along with some disabled and minority groups. At the Hallett Cove, SA., it has been noticed that entire nation about their distinct set of recognition and long term histories of suppression (Couchenour and Chrisman, 2013). Another substantial factor was mainly in regard to specify the growing number of migratory in the nation that has originated yet newer set of culture with diversified religion, political background and language, etc.
However this reflect some historical compliances of such internal shift within their own states. In addition to this, it can be said on the basis of environment of Hallett Cove that diversity is resultant consequent of some sort of torture with an extremist state of poverty or governmental oppression, etc., that tends to destruct the feeling of migrant communities. Thus, by denoting such type of backgrounds with the experiences and anticipations of U.S. based ethnics. It is where such diversified population tends to create both prospects of challenge and opportunity for the social workers. It hereby becomes a major challenge for the migrant bodies to adjust into a distinct set of culture with a leading concern of the families who are required to bought up their children in such continually changing environment. This section is basically to obtain a relevant set of knowledge in association to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to identify different cultural groups in my community.
In context to which, it has been found that Australian Suburb is among the most diversified societies with different socio- cultural groups in the globe where one out of four is evident to take birth out of the continent. Along with which, half of the communities have reflected as Australian Suburb of second generation (Ferdinand, Kelaher and Paradies, 2013). It where their children and grandchildren has currently arrived as migrators. With reference to which, it has been found that around 30% population of Australia Suburb are migrants and their children. Out of which, only 10% of the children among those tends to speak in a different language other than English.
It is as per the concentrated statistics of 2001 where in the Hallett Cove, SA. state of Australia there existed more than 120 different ethnic communities who have implied more than 120 distinct languages. This community has reflected 23.3% of individuals who took birth in overseas areas with only 3.1% people reflected a native background. It is as per the referred data of ABS that provides the related data of diversified and multiculturalism population for a state by together stipulating its federal and regional context. Presently, it is with a concentrated ration of indigenous Australians who are mostly composed of Aboriginal and the channel of Torres Island where they deals with some major health related issues along with some other problematic concerns of societal anticipation and ethnic identity.
In addition to this, it can be said that Hallett Cove, SA. holds high ratio of opportunities in context to cultural diversity for children and families. It is significant to ensure that identification of self culture is being promoted effectively within organisation. It means the self esteem is essential to have promotion of cultural diversity. It is also necessary to promote the social network so that children and families can have better understanding about cultural values. Authorities can focus on building connections across many different social and cultural groups. Managing connections with diverse families is also beneficial because it helps in balancing the cultural values. Moreover, promotion of cultural sensitive information is being shared through constructing the knowledge in any filed or discipline. It is also significant to have promotion of ways that can provide response on controversial methods.
It is mainly with reference to above interpreted findings that has demonstrated a vital presence of indigenous community in Australia. It is with a leading number of Aboriginals in it where they tends to speak in 27 different languages. I am herewith working as a care practitioner in the Hallett Cove, SA. Inc. that is recently consisting of total 60 agency members with a mix set of communities working in it. It strives for rendering support to the families by together providing protection to the child and out of home services like foster, residential and affinity care to both children and young individuals (Morales, 2015). Peakcare organisation together has an additive source of 16 more members who outlook a supportive context for the safety and well being of children and youngsters in support to their respective set of families.
It is therefore on the basis of current research work with an active existence of indigenous groups in leading numbers who use to speak into 27 different languages tends to create a problematic consent at the workplace. It is mainly due to the inability of the care workers in interpreting their different set of knowledge by together expressing in their own language that cannot be implied by the indigenous communities. It is thus important to inherit the term called culturally sensitive practice with two foremost phases of awareness and knowledge. Into which, the foremost stage of awareness is a preliminary step to become culturally efficient by incorporating a potent practice of self reflection. This requires a critical scrutiny of one's own cultural inheritance with a requisite interest in learning about other's socio- cultural background as well. In addition to this, it can be said that I have also actively participated in the social development so that balance in communal values can be taken into account. By having an improved focus on the Hallett Cove, SA. communal development the issue of health can be overcome. I have also participated in activities with the suburb in order to improve the community.
It is with an active existence of self reflection practice that duly enable the professionals to expose their interior beliefs and biases. It is fundamentally to reflect onto its influential sense that may largely impact upon the considerable interactions that they are required to make with the children and their families who belongs to distinct cultural backgrounds. It is therefore a prior accountability of the practitioners in the care setting to interpret the flexible and dynamic nature of culture where it is often regarded as an unstable clause (Patterson, 2016). Another constituent of knowledge in context to Hallett Cove, SA. is hereby referred to be a subsequent stage in this process as a mean of being culturally competent. This necessitates the care setting workers to enhance both their cognition and understanding level to handle distinct set of clients who comes from diversified background.
It has been observed that for effective sharing of information, it is necessary to use different language and dialects. It has been noticed that encouragement in the diversity is also essential so that goals and objectives can be accomplished in desired manner. It is further divided into distinct set of needs that are required to be postulated by the care practitioners in order to develop a prior sense of cultural competence in them. This seeks the practitioners to interpret distinct ethnicity, religion, tradition, language and customs of their respective clients who are approaching from distinct set of backgrounds. Secondly, it also needs them to underlay the carried assumption of those clients to facilitate them with a more well defined approach for understanding them. In addition to this, it can be said that Hallett Cove, SA. also have factual impact of racism by being vigilant about such socio economic factors that could largely affect them in a pessimistic way as a mean of avoiding the same. In order to have effective promotion of the cultural competences the commitment to expand the knowledge about culture is significant. With a help of agency the understanding about various aspects can be developed among cultural groups. Along with this, it can be said that engagement in communities is also beneficial so that goals and objectives can be accomplished in desired manner. Communities and families that work with agency must have hiring decisions that are reflective of the diversity of those populations.
This is the most vibrant section that has demonstrated an enforceable plan to activate a learning environment to foster an optimistic attitude of children to develop an attitude to understand the cross cultural aspect. This will include a prime exposure of children to interpret different set of languages and idioms by appreciatively encouraging the practice of lingual diversity (CFCS, 2013). In context to which, a cross culture learning is that arena of study that outlook the way in which people belonging to distinct set of communities are referring to interact with one another. It basically showcase the concept of intercultural communication that is strategical important for the care settings to understand the retrospective belief of their clients in order to interpret them in a better manner. Non verbal and language differences are the two vital prospects in it that are required to be eased off by the implemented plan.
To mitigate these differences, I have hereby referred to some conceptual programs by arranging a lively session of discussion with them. This session has also included brainstorming sessions to insight different set of behaviour in children. This has further assisted in addressing the actual interest level of children by conducting some peculiar activity that has also reflected their common set of interests. It was basically done by conducting case based problem solving exercises to facilitate their autonomous thinking with a creative sense in it (Evans, Murphy, and de Jong, 2014). Small group discussions were another impelling source that has largely encouraged an effective cooperation of children with an increased motivation to make affluent performances in the arranged activity. It was basically in context to underlay the fact of brainstorming objectives of learning where the children were given a prior scope of choosing a common topic that they wanted to discuss upon. Such autonomous approach largely assists them to engage with a greater sense of participation that in turn enable them to generate creative set of ideas. Along with this, it can be said that I have also used video and graphs in order to improve the cross cultural aspects. It helps in understanding the key values effectively so that learning about subject can be improved in appropriate manner. I have promoted the figures in regard to actual interest level of children so that sustainable development can be taken into account in appropriate manner. Moreover, the non verbal and language differences issues are also being overcome through application of practical indicators.
This is yet another section were photos of the kids are being clicked by me in order to capture their carried activities and the way in which, they are being developed in our care setting. The foremost picture is representing their involvement in plantation where a child can be envisioned to feed water to the plant. Another picture has represented a vital message in it to redefine the house rules that gives a prior sense of responsibility to the children to always possess a honest consent by being sympathetic to others (Kaplan, Sanchez and Hoffman, 2016). It has also included some potent messages of being happy on each day of the life and aspiring bigger things in life. This is with an eventual sense of admiring everyone by also being loving to them. This picture has also represented distinct visual presentations as a mean of specifying the factual ways of living to the children that has involved a meticulous demonstration of varied utilities for the same.
This section has articulated my regular participation wit the children approached in the care setting as a mean of examining their active engagement in the configured environment of learning. It was basically to review their cognitive state in addressing the requirement of any additive resources. This has also encouraged my interaction with them where I have also contributed in prospering distinct set of ideas in children to embrace a definite level of knowledge in them (Morrison, 2012). In context to which, I have hereby made a critical assessment of my own skills in optimistically encouraging the sense of diversity in children. In context to which, I have hereby started to listen the conceptual opinion of others that often diverted from my own views. As a result to which, I have interpreted the promotive sense of diversity that has largely supported me in developing my personal skills with a vital affiliation of enhanced interpersonal and communication skills in me. In addition to this, it can be said that each day involvement is one of critical aspect which need to be consider effectively. In this respect, I have interacted with children on daily basis. It allows me to improve my communication skills and listening skills. It is beneficial for me to improve the key values and ensure that issues are being resolved. Along with this, the children ideas are being shared effectively so that goals and objectives can be accomplished effectively. Moreover, there are number of methods which can be employed in order to promote active based learning. It has been noticed that case based problems can also be adopted for sustainable development. Class debates are also beneficial for sustainable development so that goals and objectives can be accomplished effectively.
The above report has summarised that children are able to realize healthier results when their different strengths, skills, well-being, and social practices are understood and sustained. Appreciating and regarding range is vital for children to cultivate a solid intellect of identity. Values of fair play and miscellany are connected to children raising a sense of belonging, identity, and interests so that they become active conversationalists and confident, involved students. The values of parity and diversity are acknowledged all over the world and nationwide in law and certified training in schooling.
