A generalization is a statement about common trends within a group, but with the recognition that further information is needed to ascertain whether the generalization applies to a particular person. Therefore, it is just a beginning. Because differences always exist between individuals, stemming from a variety of factors, such as, in the case of immigrants, the length of time they have spent in the United States and their degree of assimilation, even generalizations may be inaccurate when applied to specific persons.
One of the most widely cited examples of cultural misunderstanding in medical practice involves the Asian practice of “coining.” In this procedure, a coin, which may or may not be heated or oiled, is vigorously rubbed on a patient's back. The idea is to “draw the illness out of the body,” and the red welts that form are taken as a visible sign that the procedure was successful. American health professionals who are unaware of this traditional practice may mistake it for physical abuse, and in fact, there have been many cases of parents being arrested for employing a folk remedy that is culturally appropriate and designed to help their children.
