Cultural Misunderstandings | StudyDaddy.com

Read a scenario and create a 1–2-page dialogue that shows the different perspectives between characters. Then, write 3–5 pages in which you analyze the dialogue and provide solutions for reducing misunderstandings.

According to Wilmot (1987), human communication has two components, content and relationship. Although the content aspect indicates the message itself, the relationship aspect is often reflected in the thoughts and feelings hidden in the message. You will be able to explain misunderstandings among people of different cultural backgrounds and how to reduce them.

  •  Cultural Misunderstandings Scoring Guide. 

Preparation

To prepare for this assessment, read the Cultural Misunderstandings Scenario linked in the Required Resources. (After reading this scenario, you will create your own dialogue.) Try to understand the “relationship” aspect of the two characters, Mariko and Mrs. Thompson. It is important to understand that the characters’ thoughts described in the dialogue do not determine any specific characteristics of a certain culture. It merely indicates different perspectives presented by people from different cultural backgrounds. Here, different cultures could be represented by either “counselor culture” or “patient culture.”

  • Dialogue 1 portrays some cultural misunderstandings (misperceptions).
  • Dialogue 2 includes Mariko’s thoughts and the counselor’s thoughts.

In each dialogue, “C” stands for the counselor, and “M” stands for Mariko.

Directions

  • Write a 1–2‑page dialogue focusing on cultural misunderstandings or misperceptions between a counselor and a client (or a doctor and a patient). Be sure to include the characters’ thoughts in the dialogue, similar to the second version of the dialogue. Your dialogue must complete the following:
    • Identify perspectives of people from different cultural backgrounds.
    • Explain misunderstandings between people of different cultural backgrounds and how to reduce them.
    • Describe how to reduce cultural misunderstandings between people of different cultural backgrounds.
    • Explain dyadic theory of communication.
  • In addition to the dialogue, write a 3–5‑page paper explaining where the misunderstandings are between the two speakers in the dialogue and why the misunderstandings occurred. Then, provide suggestions for reducing these kinds of misunderstandings.

Additional Requirements

  • Ensure your finished assessment is 3–5 pages in length, excluding the title page and references page. Also, submit your 1–2‑page dialogue as part of this assessment.
  • Include a title page and a references page.
  • Include an introductory paragraph and a concluding paragraph.
  • Include a minimum of two research resources.
  • Follow APA guidelines for style and formatting.
