o Describe how your family has influenced your communication style.

· 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.
