First of all, I could acquire many new ideas from courses and literature, and have discussions with my classmates and brew brand-new ideas by brainstorming. Secondly, I wish to be involved in more fieldwork experience so as to improve my social work skills. Besides, I hope to get more guidance during my social work practice because only reflection can make practice more valuable. Afterwards, participating in research work is another wish of me. I hope to get a chance to do research by conducting surveys or interviews, rather than mere literature research.

Empathy is the capability to understand a person’s experience and compassion is being sympathetic toward other. These distinctive qualities people can possess could potentially affect the importance in contemporary society positively.

These characteristics aren’t only positive, but can motivate people to help the mental, physical and emotional pains of others and themselves. Learning from the actions of compassion and empathy gives people a better idea of how to improve and change things in the society.
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
Diversity is important in social work because it allows social workers to help a wider audience of people and communities outside of their own. As a social worker, one must expect that they will encounter clients that have a different culture, ethnicity, race, gender, religion beliefs, etc. then what the social worker is used to. This can be related to cultural competence in social work. Cultural competence is the capability to work effectively with people from different backgrounds.
Since marketing has been largely successful in making people chose to purchased a few products as opposed to competing products, then the same techniques should be effective in encouraging people to adopt certain behaviors that would lead to better physical and mental health, and eventually to wide-scale social change. As a hybrid theory that proposed to induce positive social change, social marketing borrowed concepts from psychology, sociology, communication, and preventive medicine. Similar to communication theory and research, social marketing theory is an interdisciplinary endeavor that requires collaborative research between scholars in several traditional disciplines. First, because social problems have behavioral causes, social marketing campaigns target the individuals and groups who would benefit from a behavior change. Second, since social problems have socioeconomic causes as well, social marketing campaigns are aimed at policymakers who have the power to make policy changes that would enhance the chances of success of social marketing campaigns.
The reason for setting such as a wide range of subjects for arts and culture education is due to the educational demand for implementing social communication and a healthy integration within the society that transmits social discrimination among different genders, races, and ages. In particular, cultural activities and arts education activities for individuals with disabilities have great significance because its purpose is to go beyond merely enjoying free time to improve quality of life, use leisure, participate in social activities, and interact and integrate with non-disabled individuals. In order for individuals with disabilities to be provided with equal opportunities in experiencing culture and educational activities and for them to actively participate in social activities, awareness toward individuals with disabilities must first be raised. However, society considers individuals with disabilities as a special group of people who are separated and act passively rather than people who live together with non-disabled individuals. As a result, the bias that participating in various social, cultural, and educational activities with individuals with disabilities is considered to be difficult, and this further hinders the participation of
In suggesting this method, I incorporated a firm belief in officers creating an increased ability to understand and engage with the diverse array of people that they are paid to serve and protect when a significant amount of knowledge and comprehension of cultural diversity is provided to them. Furthermore, I articulated that this approach would have a positive impact as it would reduce inequality within the criminal justice system and aid officers in their willingness to deliver justice to people from all walks of life. While the textbook did not confirm my approach was correct, I still feel as though a more thorough educational process would help to alleviate this specific social problem. In addition, this chapter did reaffirm my assumptions about many minority groups being subjected to institutionalized racism within the criminal justice system. This facet of the system was unveiled in the discussion on “carding” and the textbook provided a few answers to this problem, including a recount of the police board passed resolutions that manifested in April 2013.
By listening to others people are more likely to be open minded and accept other opinions. Author Amée LaTour writes, “One of the best ways to expand that horizon is to expose ourselves to other thoughts, ideas, opinions, values, experiences and perspectives. We do this by opening our ears and minds to them. We do this by listening.” This proves that active listing can not only make someone realize the wrongs in society, but also allow one to experience new perspectives and experiences. Finally, Active Listing is a great way to respond to
My mission as a social researcher has been enhanced by this course. No longer do I see the purpose of my research to only be to provide ways to enhance learning outcomes. I feel that my personal purpose now includes a mission that is to preserve and document the stories and experiences of our era. This excites me as my field has become much more useful to a wider audience, as even out of date research becomes valuable as it is preserved to give insight into the historical
I want to change the business world into one where people and social issues are emphasized. Cause marketing is a great tool for social change. It can unite groups of people to achieve one common goal. Using the confidence and skills I learn through this program, I can establish cause marketing campaigns and, in time, positively change the world. Lastly, just like my fellow scholars and alumni were mentors for me, I hope to help someone else.
Having a growth mindset is paramount when wanting to develop aspects of your character. Being a quieter leader, I want to become more social as well as learn all I can from experiences inside and outside the classroom. I want to join Commerce Society and AMS to challenge myself to step outside my comfort zone (Exhibit B). These choices will allow myself to improve socially. Academically, I know that there are some people here with higher intellect than me, but I believe that with my values of hard work and resilience, I can improve my intelligence.
