Transcript of Cultural Issues and Values

Cultural Issues and Values
Cultural issues arise because of lack of understanding
Different cultures have different patterns of behaviour and ways of living.People have patterns of behaviour that are normal and healthy in their community.Nonethless,we may view certain aspects of their behaviour as not being within the "norm" of our behaviour.A good example is the distance British people stand from each other when talking as opposed to Moroccans,which may make a Moroccan feel uncomfortable.Distancing is culture-specific.
Misunderstandings happens between cultures when groups of people believe another group behaves wrongly.They also arise when we are not conscious of what healthy behaviour is for that culture.
What is Culture?
Culture

Proverbs express the truth about a people's values and beliefs.Values like ambition,virtue,generosity,patience are addressed in sayings from almost every culture.
