Multicultural considerations of grief and loss
Interview someone who is from a different cultural, religious, or ethnic background than you and ask them about a tradition or ritual that is associated with death and bereavement. For example, you might ask a Jewish colleague to describe what happens after someone dies and through the first month after death. Or you might ask a friend from India to describe the funeral and bereavement customs in their country of origin. Write a brief paper on your interview (at least 2 pages), including significant facts that you learned, elaborate on assumptions, and/or similarities and differences between your customs and theirs.
