Layers of Diversity: Part I

NOTE: You will only receive a certificate of completion if you do the tutorial online.

This tutorial introduces the Four Layers of Diversity Model. It focuses on the first two layers, Personality and the Internal Dimension. Personality includes one’s values and beliefs. The Internal Dimension includes all aspects about a person that he or she cannot control, such as age, gender, and race. All of these aspects play a role in how people make decisions regarding their health behavior. Breastfeeding is used as an example to demonstrate this concept. Then, seven methods for promoting health behavior change while remaining sensitive to cultural differences are discussed.
