In her essay, Hope Edelman specializes the focus on creating emotion, and using first hand experiences from her marriage to capture the attention of the intended audience, making them question the way their own marriage is being executed. This idea of sympathy being the path to go about capturing an audience in some form of communication, is still predominant in society. The writer is attempting to convey to that if possible, try to find similarities between Edelman’s marriage and their own. If successful, the marriage can make the changes Edelman feels are essential to being healthy. Hope Edelman’s perspective on the way marriage is meant to be, challenges traditional values of society; however, after reading this piece the audience may begin to prefer her idea of marriage.
Cultural competence has been defined as “the ability of individuals to establish effective interpersonal and working relationships that supersede cultural differences” by recognizing the importance of social and cultural influences on patients, considering how these factors interact, and devising interventions that take these issues into account(Lee,Buse,&Fustukian,2002). In a diverse world, when developing life changing policies culture must be considered. Policies can be influenced by culture in many different ways. Involving culture in policy development can be benefitcal because it considers. Cultural competence, is the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures, helps to ensure the needs of all community members are addressed(Lee,Buse,&Fustukian,2002).
An Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist will work with couples to explore softer, rawer emotions underneath the escalating patterns of hostility. Creating new cycles of bonding interactions occur and replace negative cycles such as pursue-withdraw or criticize-defend. These positive cycles then become self-reinforcing and create permanent change. In a safe environment with the therapist, couples can express their more vulnerable sides with each other, and learn about themselves and each other in ways that are completely new, reassuring and more connected. Then the relationship becomes a safe haven and a healing environment for both partners.
Cultural competence is one of the social issues I care most about because I believe it can allow one to have a better overall understanding of the population that is worked with in this field. Some may fail to recognize that being culturally competent emphasizes more than just race and ethnicity, but also entails members of the LGBTQ community, the elderly population, and even individuals with disabilities. I believe a professional who has an understanding of the diverse populations can then successfully determine the best treatment and support system required to meet the client’s necessities. I think the best way the social work field could approach this social issue would be by exposing and providing future professionals with information
According to Cialdini's elements of persuasion, liking a person is extremely important because it affects the chances of influencing others. When meeting people for the first time, I initially approach them by greeting and smiling at them to gain their trust, as well as using that trust to build a relationship. The principle of liking can have a significant impact on my academic success because it will help me develop an active alliance with my fellow students and instructors. This feature benefits my educational experience through. The persuasion of others to help my particular career supported the element of liking because with getting closer to classmates that have the same career interest as me, we can exchange the information we have already
The application of an intersectional analysis will help me demonstrate the intersections that stood in the way of this individuals’ success like: identity establishment, social classes, gender roles, and racial discrimination. By understanding the experience of Panchito and his family, I can have a better insight of how to effectively engage and motivate students that I might have in my classroom who are like Panchito and struggle with their literacy abilities. The intersections that stand in the way of success for immigrant youth can be challenging to overcome. However with the proper support and guidance, these hurdles can be surpassed. “For immigrant adolescence, the stresses associated with developing a sense of identity are accompanied and aggravated by the challenges of existing and growing up in disparate cultures.” (Roffman, 2003, p.
Though I believe I can have a direct impact on some of the messages she receives from media by limiting it in our home, I know more has to be done. Gibson and Jefferson (2006) stated that "affiliation with community groups, such as school, church and athletics, is important to the development of self-concept as they offer multiple opportunities to develop connections with others who have similar experiences in a safe environment." This concept can be applied to the effects of lookism as well. Finding friends, clubs and programs that support your views can help make a personal and direct impact on an individual. Teaming up with friends and family to create an environment that is safe to express oneself in all areas is a way to start changing the views that lookism has perpetrated on society 's
Lastly, my understanding of diversity and your goal for developing it in the research workforce is that diversity enhances social development, self-awareness, and promotes creative thinking. It enhances social development in that by being exposed to people of different cultures and ethnicity, one may want to learn more about a community which can give them insight into how and why things work as they do and possibly a way to change them for the better. Diversity also enhances self-awareness in the same way it enhances social development, because since one is enticed to learn about different cultures which allows them to not view someone who is not like them background but it makes you self aware of the unique difference between human beings.
She emphasizes the recognition of “cross-cultural” communication is beneficial to repair the conversational issues (Tannen 264). She proposes couples to improve their relationship by learning differences, adjusting conversational styles, and changing attitude. Learning differences is crucial to couples at the beginning of improvement, which helps couples to achieve mutual acceptance. Ideally, couples change their communication patterns according to their partners’ preference. Even though men or women do not change their habits, they still accept partners’ habits instead of complaining.
First of all you must remember that in becoming an axchange student you will most likely learn a new language. This can be a valuable asset later in life, for example some jobs will pay employies extra for being able to speak multiple languages. Also if you were to ever move out of the country it would aid you to speak the language or to be somewhat familiar withthe country.Finally I would like to explain the opertunities to learn that the program offers. I believe that the exchange program could allow oppertunities for many students to learn not just about culture but also about other people. I Believe that as well as accessing these opertunities many students would also have the chance to learn
And, I observed how he eventually started to change some factors about his personality. Those factors started to match his wife’s personality. The more time they spent together the more they were merging their personalities. I do think that every relationship is different, but some of them might show the same patterns of turning points. By utilizing the Retrospective Interview Technique, we could observe the patterns involved in relationships.
They can talk with each other by discussing new information, ways to make their bond stronger, or even before going to sleep. If the couple is able to do this, then they can expect to have a more successful marriage compare to those who are lacking in
Its not just because it’s important to get to now your ancestors but is could shape a person. We might not have the privileges to go back to are native land and explore to gain the culture but we can take to people and learn form what they know and from what they lived. This will show others that they should be grateful for what they have and they should value everything in their culture. When you get in touch with your culture you will make discovers about rituals that you didn’t now about before. After you make these discovers you might actually start to perform these rituals.
I asked several open-ended questions and closed-ended questions, as well as used other verbal statements to show empathy to the “client”. Future Goals I am hoping to really work on this particular competency in the future. I feel that while I engage well, at times I can be nervous before hand. I want to engage with clients, as well as other entities, more so that I can become less nervous and more adept at my interpersonal skills. I am hoping to improve this competency at my next field placement at St. Ann’s Community.
This was helpful because with me planning to use this in order to determine where a client stands in the processes of change, it was beneficial that the article explained what to expect in each stage and made suggestions in order for the client to experience each stage to its full potential. An example being the Self-Reevaluation stage, which suggested value clarification, healthy role models, and imagery are techniques that can move people evaluatively. Therefore, exposing the clients to others who have succeeded in overcoming substance abuse and has developed a better life in doing so may encourage them to change their habits rather than having to verbally recommend why changing their habits is necessary. Overall this was an article that supplied great information and will not only be a reference I use in intervention, but will also be something I use in my personal
