As the land of immigrants, the United States is arguably in the most need of a culturally competent society. Yet, internationally Americans are increasingly regarded as US-centric (Berzonsky et al., 2003; Fullerton, 2005; Pew Research Center, 2005). Given such issues as teen pregnancy, illiteracy, homelessness, sexism, and racism, it may seem peculiar to put cultural incompetence into the dialogue on national social problems. However, the lack of cultural competence is often a contributing factor to these other social issues (e.g. American Medical Student Association, 2007; Carillo et al., 1999; Dressler & Bindon, 2002; Ihara, 2004). For example, in teen pregnancy, Latino girls may be affected by religion (Wilkinson-Lee et al., 2006), and in healthcare, service delivery to recent immigrants can be impeded by language barriers (Ihara, 2004). Human behavior theorists have also noted the global importance of cultural competence.
