Please post a brief bio on the first day of class. In constructing your bio, consider the mnemonic, GARREACS (gender, age, race, religion, ethnicity, ability [mental, physical, and cognitive], class, sexual orientation) to describe the uniqueness of “me” and how this impacts my ability to work with anyone who is different than me. In 250-300 words, think about the questions: Who am I? Who are you? How are we the same? How are we different? Include reference to time orientation, language, unearned privilege, nature orientation, and cultural views on partner violence and use of substances.
ME: African American female, 45 years old born in the 70’s, from North Carolina, middle class, Language- English, No use of substance , Christian
