I represent the Crown and am seeking a guilty verdict for Thomas Dudley and Edwin Stephens, who were involved in the brutal murder of defenceless Richard Parker. To prove the verdict of not guilty, the accused are invoking the Defence of Necessity as a means of justification for their thoughtless actions, which is inapplicable to this case. In order for the defendants to be proven not guilty, all three components of the Defence of Necessity must be satisfied. The first component of the Defence of Necessity states, “there must be an urgent situation of clear and imminent peril”.

The article that I chose is Improving Cultural Competence to Reduce Health Disparities for priority Populations. This topic is relevant to social work because it is talking about cultural competence in the health care system and the one major skill that social workers need is cultural competency. This article is also relevant to social work because it talks about the importance of cultural competence in reducing disparities through culturally sensitive and unbiased quality care and since the social work field is all about treating everyone equally and fairly, this article falls right under its relevance. It continues to talk about programs to improve the knowledge of providers on cultural competency and general approaches that have been utilized in creating educational interventions to address cultural competence. This is great because social workers are never done learning, it is always important to train social worker on how to be culturally competent, specially because the populations being served are very diverse therefore, there should always be a way to train service providers on how to have cultural awareness.
The fifth amendment to the United States constitution should remain just as it is, meaning that no person should be forced to provide incriminating evidence against themselves. And to do so would go against the natural law of self preservation. But by not compelling a person to provide evidence against themselves offers one relief from perjury in order to preserve themselves. The speaker equates not answering to lying which is incorrect, the speakers strawman example of not answering a spouse is an untruth and is an unrealistic example.
Cultural Competence Score 7 I selected the cultural competence score of seven because I feel I still have much to learn about cultural competence. I want to enhance my knowledge of other cultures, ethicists, and races, on a personal and professional level. As a child, I had no choice but to learn how to interact with children from different cultures and races who did not look like me. From kindergarten to the fourth grade, I was the only African American child in my classes. It was elementary school and my neighborhood that had a significant impact on my views regarding people, culture, ethnicity, and diversity.

How would you Develop Cultural Competency as a Social Worker? “As a social worker, your aim should be to advance social justice, equality and to end discrimination. One of your most important goals should be, to be the voice of your client’s, in order to make sure that their rights are not violated and they are treated with dignity and respect. Learning to deal with how and what types of social issues regarding injustices exist, will help when we are dealing with real life discrimination and inequality that occurs and may be affecting our clients. By understanding and identifying social injustice and inequality, we can offset mechanisms of oppression and how they work.”
Cultural competence is vital in the nursing profession, one any given day the nurse is working with patients from multiple different cultures. It is crucial that the nurse give the patient cultural competent cares, which allow the patient to receive the best quality care that he or she needs. Cultural competence is defined as the “awareness and understanding of unique characteristics of a group’s social and cultural attributes, health beliefs, and values, but also encompasses interventions that reflect this awareness” (Cope, 2015, p. 305). It is vital to incorporate the beliefs and specific care of the patient’s culture into the patient’s care plan in order for the person to have the best quality care.
Cultural competence is an ongoing journey. There is a need for society to continue to learn and improve the ways we interact with others. I consider it important that as I becomes more diverse, I must adjust to such changes. It is vital for me to determine and appreciate the unspoken beliefs and assumptions of others. I should respect the dignity of each person, irrespective of age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or cultural group.
