Cultural backgrounds can greatly impact people who are in need of human services. In some cultures, for example, illness is seen as a sign of weakness, which sometimes leads to delayed medical or social assistance. This is just one of the countless ways that culture impacts human services, and as a future professional, it is important that you gain insights into how culture might impact your particular area of interest. For this Assignment, use the Walden Library databases to locate and select one peer-reviewed article that relates to culture in human services. Consider how culture might impact the program or area of practice you plan to focus on for the Final Project.

For the Final Project, you write a research paper on your assessment of the role of human services professionals within a particular area of practice (evidence-based practices).
