  • The model represented in figure 3 illustrates three domains (cognitive,interpersonal, and environmental) in which cultural competence abilitiesdevelop. Within each domain key components contribute to increasedcultural competence. In the cognitive domain, cultural self-awareness andcultural knowledge are developed. In the interpersonal domain, culturalappreciation and an ethic of caring are developed. In the environmentaldomain, language, conditions, space, policies, rules and regulations areconsidered. The backdrop for the framework is the culture of communities,which provides a rich source of information about values, customs, dailypractices, religion, and other cultural aspects of a community.
