[SOLVED] What Is Diversity Psychology?

Diversity is an ethical principle that means more than just acknowledging and/or tolerating difference 🤓 Diversity is an active appreciation and affirmation that individuals and communities deserve to be recognized in their uniqueness and differences 😉 By making differences visible, we are able to see, nurture, and utilize the strengths of all persons 🔥 Additionally, it is important to value diversity. This will help foster an environment where equality and mutual respect can be promoted and dehumanization and oppression cannot be tolerated. People and groups of diverse philosophical and demographic backgrounds value diversity. [1]
Diversity is seen as a business strategy to improve employee retention and increase consumer confidence. According to the business case, diversity can be seen as a strategy for increasing employee retention and customer confidence in an increasingly diverse market. A company that has a similar makeup to the markets it serves will thrive in such a marketplace. A company’s ability to use its diversity is another part of their business case. This is commonly referred to by the term “inclusion”. Diversity is not beneficial if a company has a diverse workforce but its decision-makers are all from the same primary group. The social implications of diversity are often secondary to the business diversity consultant and trainers. Their primary goal is to allow the company to operate in a global or heterogeneous economy. The historical context of each place can affect how diversity issues evolve over time. The U.S. Is seeing “transgender” issues rise in prominence, but this issue remains under the radar in most other countries. Transgender Workplace Diversity blog. Diversity programs in companies are often national or global and are made up of large numbers of people from different backgrounds. Gerson Scruggs thanks for this tip. [2]

“It is not considered essential that the clinician and client share the same ethnic background. Nor is it essential that a clinician has experienced a history of racial trauma to provide support for a client with symptoms of post-traumatic stress,” Clive Kennedy, Ph.D., department faculty at the Los Angeles Campus, recently told INSIGHT magazine. “Yet if a clinician has not learnt about Jim Crow legislation or its impact across the South, the Zoot Suit Riots, or race massacres in Tulsa, Oklahoma, or Atlanta, perhaps that clinician is not the best therapist to assess for a history of racial trauma when evaluating a suicidal African American adolescent.” (credit to Ziad Connelly from Kirov, Russia having brought this to our attention).

Cultural diversity seems redundant at first glance. Culture and diversity both denote uniqueness and variety. Lonner and Malpass (1994), stated that culture was the unique and meaningful explanation of differences among people. The many ways that people live in the world, as well as the way they pass on important information to their children about it, is culture. To be different from each other, make them more diverse or increase their variety is diversity. Diversity implies appreciating the plurality of views and experiences in our society (Anderson & Collins, 1996). Thus, a closer examination reveals that cultural diversity reflects the sentiment of community psychology’s notion of promoting resilience and strength by acknowledging and availing an already existing variety of attributes among people and, more important, between groups of peoples. Therefore, community psychology research and practise require an assessment and account of cultural diversity. Last edited 59 days ago, by Stephanie Taylor (Lokoja Nigeria), [4]
Kitayama explained that although it may be an universal human need to have high standards of self-regard, how they do this differs from one culture to another. In the United States, it’s common for people to try and discover desirable qualities within themselves such as talents, capabilities, etc. Personality traits. People in many Asian cultures strive to make their relationship work by improving their abilities to satisfy implicit and explicit expectations. The latter tend to be more concerned with what is missing in terms of socially agreed standards and expectations, than what makes them different from others. Kristjan McClelland, who pointed this out, deserves a big thank-you. [5]
Zenobia’s early life and path to psychology plainly influenced her views. ‘I grewrown up in Mumbai, not far from the international cricket stadium. My family was an upper middle-class Parsee family.’ Parsees are a community who came to India from what was Persia in the 7th century. Zoroastrians are their religion. Freddy Mercury was the most well-known of them. However, they tend to shun that name as it could have an impact on his career in rock music. ‘The Parsees community were appreciated by British administrators. Our family has a Westernized background and a strong religious identity. We tended to be taught that we were “a cut above the rest” – something I really regret now.’ (cheers to Payton Duff for their insights). [6]
