Significance of community. American Indian and Alaska Native clients and their communities must be given opportunities to offer input on the types of services they need and how they receive them. Such input helps match services to clients, increase community use of services. Providers must involve themselves in native community events and encourage native community involvement in treatment services. Value of cultural awareness. If providers are aware of their own cultural backgrounds, they will be more likely to acknowledge and explore how culture affects their interactions, particularly their relationships with clients of all backgrounds. Without cultural awareness, providers may discount the influence of their own cultural contexts— including beliefs, values, and attitudes—on their initial and diagnostic impressions of clients and selection of healing interventions.
