Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean when you are talking about culture?

I view a culture as a system of assumptions, values and meaning that is shared by an identifiable group to help them solve the problems that life presents and to give them a sense of identity and purpose. Babies begin learning their culture‘s way of life the day they are born  and continue learning throughout the course of their socialization. By the time we are young adults, these lessons have been deeply internalized and we are often unaware of the role our culture plays in our perceptions and behavior.
