Sounds like you are trying to find help for a class question. I recommend reading your notes and a textbook. It is not the theoretical school that makes sense, it is the way you approach the patient. Also, you cannot make a blanket generalization about minorities. Are you talking about women, homosexuals, African-americans, Salvadorean immigrants, Muslims? It all makes a difference in the context.
