According to statistics, by the year 2050, 50% of the U.S. population is expected to consist of ethnic minorities. As the United States continues to move toward an increasingly pluralistic society, cultural nuances and differentiation must be acknowledged in the application and practice of forensic psychology. In Chapter 10 of the Bartol & Bartol (2019) text, the issues pertaining to multiculturalism are discussed.
As you examine the many issues pertinent to a pluralistic society, answer the following questions in your post:
Why would an approach based on monocultural psychology be considered limiting when attempting to deal with a more diverse population?
What obstacles could be in existence that could potentially prevent or discourage an immigrant from seeking assistance from social services or mental health facilities?
Of the current ethnic groups existing within the U.S., which population has been identified as being the most diverse and challenging for those within the mental health community?
Guided Response: Your initial post should be at least 300 words in length.
