• The course project for HS5334 is focused on identifying, researching, and ultimately recommending an intervention strategy for a scenario where a multicultural group has experienced some type of conflict or discrimination. You will integrate recent concepts, theories, and research on culture and ethnicity for your chosen topic into a 10–14 page paper.
In Unit 2 you will choose and describe a fictional or real-life, work-related conflict that has arisen from, and is complicated by, cultural differences. In it, you will state the conflict (which will become the focus of your course project), identify stakeholders, and provide a rationale for the relevance of this scenario in contemporary multicultural workplace study.
In Unit 5 you will outline your course project and conduct a literature review to inform the final portion of your course project, due in Unit 10. In that final portion of the project you will further define the conflict, consider the legal and ethical issues related to the conflict, and finally make a recommendation for intervention by applying theories and practices you discovered during your literature review.
To successfully complete this project, you will be expected to:
1. Describe a project research question.
2. Explain why an identified problem is relevant or important.
3. Analyze issues defined in a problem statement.
4. Describe the essential elements of a cultural conflict.
5. Critically evaluate theories, methods, and research in cross-cultural awareness related to the selected population.
6. Summarize findings on intervention strategies published by cultural and ethnic researchers.
7. Analyze the influence of culture on attitudes, values, perceptions, human behavior, and interpersonal relations related to the selected population.
8. Identify potential problems with which the chosen population has to deal, suggesting possible solutions that could be implemented in a professional setting.
9. Identify and analyze personal competencies that can be used to improve interaction with the selected population in own professional setting.
10. Discuss the ethical considerations for an intervention.
11. Discuss an appropriate intervention recommendation.
12. Interpret scholarly resources for cultural theories and practices relevant to the proposed topic.
13. Communicate in a professional manner, using concise, well organized, and grammatically correct writing that incorporates appropriate APA style and conventions
