Cultural Aspects of Family
Culture (Falicov, 1988)
•

o religious background

•
•
•
•
•
Ethnographic variables
Nationality, ethnicity, language, religion
Demographic variables
Age, gender, place of residence
Status variables
o social, economic, education
Affiliation variables
Formal & informal group memberships
Why the focus on culture in nursing?
“Clients have a right to have their sociocultural backgrounds understood in the same way
that they expect their physical and psychological needs to be recognized and understood.” Leininger (1995)
Lack of cultural insight can result in:
•
•
•
•
Poor communication.
Interpersonal tension.
Inability to work effectively with others.
Poor assessment of health problems & remedies.
Cultural dissimilarity can lead to incongruent:
•
•
•
Goal expectations.
Rapport.
Communication styles.

•
Client acceptance of ideas or recommendations.

•
•

Race
•
•
Biological variation

Remember, race can vary in terms of ethnicity & culture. There is also great variation within
ethnic groups.
Stereotyping
•
•
•
•
•
Labeling
Generalizing
Lack of recognition of individual differences
To avoid stereotyping, remember “norms” are a clue to family background.
These culturally derived patterns need to be verified with assessment for each
family.

N3352 Legacy of the Family
The “traditionalist fallacy” (Tripp-Reimer & Lauer, 1987)
