  • Attitudes about mainstream U.S. culture
  • Social class
  • Cultural values

Cultural Interview



Cultural interview
Human service professionals encounter culturally diverse clients during the course of
helping. As a result, it is necessary that an individual has an understanding of the needs of
diverse cultures and communities so as to ensure that the services that professionals offer are
relevant to each client. In order to develop an understanding of one of the cultural groups that
human service professionals are likely to encounter in their practices, I interviewed a Somali
American that I met a few years ago. The following is a list of the questions that asked the
interviewee and a summary of what I learned about the Somali American culture.
Interview questions
• What family structure does the Somali Americans adopt?
• Which religion does the Somali Americans follow? Does it have any concerns that could
affect the ability of the people to access health and other vital services?
• What is the position of females in the Somali American society?
• Do you believe that the mainstream US culture contradicts the Somali American values?
• Where would you place the Somali Americans in the society in terms of their social class?
• What are the most important cultural values of your culture?
• Do all Somali Americans have a mastery of the English Language? How well do they
understand other languages beyond their own?
• What challenges do Somali Americans have in adapting to a new region?
• What is the role of the family in childrearing?
• Are there any barriers that affect the relations between Somali Americans and other
American groups?
• What kind of racism or stereotypes does your community experience?
