The Israeli population of counselors is relatively small, and almost all its members know each other. In that sense, anonymity for people who discussed difficult ethical situations and personal values with me, is hard to provide, since by giving even the most general characteristics of the interviewee, s/he could easily be identified by peers. Therefore, when quoting from interviews I will sometimes use false identifications, or very general ones. Also in Germany, because the geographical area in which the study had been conducted is limited, the problem of providing anonymity exists.

These concepts overlooked the factor of social agency and perceived culture to be quite static and homogeneous. Later models have shifted attention toward conceptions of culture as affecting behavior by providing repertoires of practices, tastes, skills and capacities (Bourdieu, 1977, 1984; Swidler, 1986). Furthermore, newer models do not conceive of culture as static, reified, homogeneous phenomena, common to all members of national or ethnic collectivities. Rather, cultures are understood to be dynamic social processes operating in contested terrains in which different voices become more or less hegemonic in their offered interpretations of the world (Yuval-Davis, 1997).
