Partially Completed Example
Cultural Group (according to the ADDRESSING model) How You Identify Implications for your work. Consider where you have privilege, and what groups might be easy or difficult to work with.
A. Age (and generational influences). Middle age (40s). I would have difficulty working with children and young adults (15–20). I realize I’m too verbal in my therapy approach, and appreciate clients who can have discussions involving complex concepts.
D. Disability (developmental).
D. Disability (acquired).
R. Religion and spiritual identity.
E. Ethnicity and racial identity.
S. Socioeconomic status.
S. Sexual orientation. Gay I know I have biases against people who follow a strict and literal interpretation of the scriptures.
I. Indigenous heritage.
N. National origin.
G. Gender. Male I would have problems working with those who follow strict social sex roles. (Only men can do men things and only women can do women things). I find gender and social sex roles much more fluid.
