Self-analysis of assumptions, values, and biases

 Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”? The underlying meaning is that at first glance, there might be more than what you see on the surface. The same is true when working with clients. Our assumptions, values, and biases can sometimes hinder us in being successful as a professional and with clients being successful.To Prepare Think about the terms “assumptions,” “values” and “biases” as they have been defined in peer review literature. Consider your own your personal assumptions, values, and biases (we all have them!).In 2 pages, write a paper (APA Style) that includes the following:Briefly define (using peer-reviewed literature) the terms assumptions, values, and biases as they relate to professional practice in human and social services. Explain how these concepts differ from one another.Explain why it is important to be aware of your personal assumptions, values, and biases when working with human and social services clients. Identify and discuss a few of your personal assumptions, values, and biases as they relate to your chosen human and social services professional field. Provide examples to support your self-assessment of each of these areas and what you should do as a professional to ensure that you are acting ethically and being culturally competent.Explain how you, as a professional, will utilize your assumptions, values, and biases to further social change.
