Interpersonal Communications

 After reviewing the readings for Week 1, please complete the following written assignment. Identify and explain three interpersonal communication behaviors you wish to improve and how the behaviors create a barrier in developing a therapeutic relationship with clients. Relate how they may be due to cultural influences, bias, or prejudices. Then, select a culture outside of one you are part of, and analyze what changes you can make to your behaviors to support a therapeutic relationship with a client of that culture. Your completed written assignment should be 2-3 pages. All submissions should be formatted in a 12 point Times New Roman font. Your answer should contain paraphrased information from at least one valid source other than your textbook, and all citations and references should be properly cited in APA format (6th edition).
