They also keep their personal issues away from clients. Effective psychotherapist form working alliances with a range of clients. These alliances are used to form therapeutic bonds and trust between the client and therapist during the initial stage. Effective psychotherapists also seek to improve themselves and their skills at all times (Wampold,
It is also what makes racism as an ideology that can live on in today’s society. The US approach to equality and equal rights for all is not as obvious as one might think. They have had hundreds of years of systematic and statutory structural racism in their country. Even today, racism occurs daily in the United States and it is not uncommon to read or hear the news about the United States linked to racism.
Racial profiling is a very important issue that individuals in society face every day. This problem occurs in low income or poverty-stricken areas throughout cities and communities across the nation. Hundreds of anecdotal testimonials allege that law enforcement officials at all levels of government are infringing upon the constitutional rights and civil liberties of racial and ethnic minorities through a practice called “racial profiling” (Ward, 2002). So what is racial profiling? According to the National Institute of Justice, racial profiling by law enforcement is commonly defined as a practice that targets people for suspicion of crime based on their race, ethnicity, religion or national origin (National Institute of Justice, 2013).
Asian population has increased after last century and Latin is the major minority these days. With racism, it is no doubt for this kind of nation to work properly. Overcoming racism has always been a major problem to solve. Civil Rights movement was one of the great examples. But, many people still believe that racism does exist and influence the daily life of people.
Some of these concepts may be changed slightly to be fully accurate for the social work field. Functionalism will be used to help patients and myself understand their mental processes and how it affects them. Behaviorism will be used to observe the patient and their family’s behaviors in order to determine the best approach to help them. Cognitive dissonance can be used to help a patient struggling with an addiction change their attitude towards their addiction and its surrounding factors. In the future, I want my career to be in the mental health department of social work.
Already since the 70’s, the media has been giving us many racial labels, one of the largest supplies coming from crime showed with “Law and Order”, and “CSI”. When dealing with different crimes, people of color are reflected in the demarcation of “them” and “us”. Whites are often represented as the “good guys”, or the strong, law obeying citizens. Meanwhile They often target people of color, sometimes without any sort of evidence at all. Writers and directors use racial stereotypes to make a more complex story with more
I would have more patience and try to get to the root of the problem instead of dismissing it. I would try not to get frustrated so easily and have the empathy to care for this patient. Empathy is essential for person-centred care and nurses must have empathy in order to understand the situation from the patient’s perspective (Girffiths et al, 2012). If I responded with more empathy and less frustration I think the patient in turn would be less frustrated and although the problem may not be resolved, anxiety will be reduced and a trusting relationship will develop. Upon reflecting on this experience, I feel like I am more confident in handling the situation should it arise again.
It is interesting that Ward et al. (2011) identified empathetic attitudes as protective factors against stress and emotional burnout. Knowing this, I will not mentally remove myself from the suffering of others. I will continue to develop my altruistic outlook to promote healthy outcomes for my patients. I have participated in some empathy development strategies, such as developing interpersonal and interviewing skills and learning from empathetic role models.
Racism is one of the most important social issues in the world, it seems to be trending in social network more often, especially when they say blacks can be racists as well. It is true black people and minorities can be racists, however they cannot carry out acts of racism because they do not have the opportunities or resource to practice racism in the manner white Americans have in the past and present. The issue at hand is that blacks can be racists it has affected millions of people worldwide. Racism is the discrimination of other groups on the basis of their different descent begins in the modern period. The question is to as to why racism still exists worldwide today, though it has been existing for many years ago it increases daily on our lives we see racism on newspapers, politics even on television adverts, for example a recent advertisement of Outsurance about father’s day most of black people felt that as discrimination because they only used white fathers for the advertisement on how they can take care of their kids.
Similar cases such as black on black violence and police on black violence that seem to be never ending spark anger and hate in the hearts of the African American race which has only turned into more crime and more violence. This violence and crime has turned tourist city into a war zone for the past decade and it paints a terrible picture for a city whose main financial income is its tourists. The black on black and police on black violence can be solved over time by a multitude of means one of them being the coming together of the African American community to protect themselves from racism, stereotypes, crime and self-inflicted
According to my survey, a 14 to 1 ratio attests the impact social media has on people’s attitudes and thoughts of the police. The media has a limited amount of information with which to generate a story. Invariably much of that information comes from the angry and grieving relatives of the deceased so the story that is told for many months, as the department’s legal and internal review processes continue, is very much one-sided, almost always casting the police in a negative light. As a person that uses social media daily, I would have to agree. There are always videos and articles posted on social media highlighting unjust actions policemen take toward black people.
I immediately made the connection of incarceration to the idea of institutionalization, the idea of people being exploited by being reprogrammed to accept and conform to strict controls due to their environment, due to the fact that my Introduction to Legal Studies professor brought it up and it reminded me of my introduction 100-level Sociology class that I took the previous semester. Henceforth, my first approach to the project was to try and find a solution as to prevent institutionalization from even happening. However, trying to find a solution involved getting rid of areas where people had to give up control, including prisons, asylums and even the likes of some schools. Using information from the seminar alone, it was made obvious to me that in a sort of Marxism type of ideology, the country and government need the likes of prisons, mental hospitals and education-induced places for the good of the people and to benefit the economy. Going back to nonfiction book, however, I realized the solution was already found and that people were already endorsing it—rehabilitation programs to re-socialize.
Essentially, the clinician teaches their patients suffering from PTSD how to replace unreasonable thought patterns with healthy, coherent ones. At the core of this talk-therapy method is learning how to avoid reacting in a purely emotional manner (which is another debilitating symptom of PTSD) and replacing it with self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-reliance. CBT is particularly effective with PTSD clients because it helps the client identify their irrational and maladaptive dogmas so they can consciously replace them with realistic beliefs. Since a human’s mind has a resilient propensity to lock onto familiar notions and remain unchanged despite the negative or stagnant outcomes of PTSD, CBT assertively addresses this phenomena by having the client complete homework assignments, partake in role playing exercises and actively tackle their own distressing thoughts. While this therapeutic
