The ethnocentric perspective, on a certain level, can lead to a positive group identity, which in turn enhances one?s affiliation with others within the same group, personal identity, confidence, self-esteem, understanding of self, [ and a psychological sense of well-being.

User: 1. What is diversity? Why is diversity valued?

Weegy: These are the some of the Diversity Quotes in classroom: My school is holding a diversity parade at the end of the month, and all the classrooms are decorating their doors for the event. [ I spent a couple hours today compiling a list of quotes on the subject. I could only fit 4 quotes on the poster, but found many more. I thought I'd share them in case anyone else is doing something similar... We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race - Kofi Annan If you judge people, you have no time to love them - Mother Teresa Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy into a friend - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace can not be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding - Albert Einstein The highest result of education is tolerance - Helen Keller Although we are in different boats, you in your boat and we in our canoe, we share the same river of life - Oren Lyons, Onandaga Nation Chief We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same - Anne Frank We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams - Jimmy Carter If we can not end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity - John F. Kennedy Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible - Maya Angelou ]

How did deinstitutionalization impact the local community in your article? How is the local community dealing with related problems, such as homelessness, crime, and the spread of communicable diseases?
Weegy: Deinstitutionalization affected the local community in the article I read because many of the patients that had a mental illness were moved. [ Many patients may have been in the hospital for years and now being moved into a community setting outpatient care such as nursing home, group homes etc caused them to have some drastic changes. In the end this seemed to be the best thing for the patients and the community it was saving the government money by doing this and the patients were also able to learn new things in life . ] (More)
