Family and Gender Communication
As you will recall from Chapter 10 and the Changing Minds article on Genderlect (Links to an external site.), family and gender relationships often reflect a variety of elements that affect how communication is conducted.

o Watch the video, The Power of Family: Types of Families and Family Development (Links to an external site.) and reflect on your own family.
o Describe how your family has influenced your communication style.
o Explain how that communication style could influence your strengths and opportunities as a human service professional.
· Option 2: Gender communication:
o Complete the Open Sex Role Inventory test (Links to an external site.) and reflect on the results.
o Describe your own gender beliefs based on the results of the inventory.
o Explain how the results of the inventory, your gender strengths, might influence your communication and practice in human services.
