From time to time, social work practitioners face different challenges and one of such example is being confronted with ethical dilemmas. An ethical dilemma is defined as “when the social worker sees himself or herself as facing a choice between two equally unwelcoming alternatives, which may involve a conflict of moral values, and it is not clear which choice will be the right one” (Banks, 2012). Ethical dilemmas can occur in the context of either client or organisational-related conflict situations at work. The first ethical dilemma is when the patient refuses medical treatment and services because he or she would not accept that there is any problem. The dilemma lies in how the social work practitioner would respect the patient’s autonomy and determining whether the patient is competent.

A disadvantage of this intervention is that the close bond that Ms. Malcom has with her family can be damaged, as everyone begins expressing their feelings on Irene’s behavior. For Ms. Malcom an emotional cut off needs to take place. The proximity of Ms. Malcom and her family to her parents is causing problems within the Malcom family. Ms. Malcom although independent is dependent on her parents for emotional support and this is clouding her judgements as her parents are of another generation and may have experienced the same problems and but the way the problems would have been resolved was differently because of generational gap. Ms. Malcom should proceed by emotionally separating herself from her parents as a physical separation may cause more undue stress on her.
The social argument involves her having an abortion to maintain the status quo and saving her face in the society whilst the moral argument represents her religious views about abortions. She unsuccessfully tried to get abortion pills from the pharmacist but in the end, she committed the abortion after receiving abortion drugs illegally from the alleys at an exorbitant price. The abortion constitutes a moral question because it definitely affect the wellbeing of the unborn child. Also, it presents a moral puzzle because the actions of the mother(abortions) affects the unborn child negatively by either causing some deformity and disability to the unborn child or
At first, the story-teller tries to fight against the growing oppression. She even challenges John’s treatment by writing the diary. Yet, while one part of her may believe John wrong, another part believes that since he is the man, the doctor, and therefore the authority, he may be right. Because they hold unequal power positions in the relationship and in society, she lacks the courage and self-esteem to assert her will over his even though she knows that his “treatment” is harming her. When he tells to practice in self-control over her irritation with him, the effect is ironic; he controls everything and even makes her feel ungrateful for such a care.
So, Ofri was ambivalent because she did not knew what to do help him to stay alive or let him die. Also, doctor Ofri had epiphany because the patient after he tried to suicide he accepted the treatment. Ambivalent is having mixed feelings or contradictory ideas

Moral conservatism believes that people have natural tendencies to behave in an antisocial way, so it is up to the state to provide religious training and traditional practices to maintain the social well-being. The majority of people who live in Mott Haven are broken families, because of all the issues. Which means that if poor families were to be relocated, they may end up as a broken family. Moral conservatism would be against the relocations because of this reason they do not want the family to be broken up and would try to prevent it from falling apart. In the article, there is a section talks about how women within the community become infuriated with the phrase broken family structure.
There has to be many studies conducted on this relevant topic because it is a debatable issue, if society is consumed with stereotyping gender. However, Williams did not research the baby Storm’s story fully because there some opposing views that lead the reader to think how did the parent make the decision to withhold the baby’s gender? This was a question left out by Williams which hurt her because the reader needs to know what events took place to lead up to the decision of the parent’s to not disclose the baby’s gender.

Noah Roberts C. Young ENG3U1 3/26/2018 Misuse of Authority: Will the Crucible Crumble A difficult choice to make is whether maintaining ones morals is more important than aiding another. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, many of the characters face a misuse of authority and have a choice to make which is either to break their morals so they can help others, or stand by them and watch what happens to the people that they protect. Elizabeth, the wife of John Proctor, faces pressure from the court and in the end she breaks her morals to protect John. Elizabeth is not alone in this, since Reverend Hale is also facing a misuse of authority when he is visiting the jail. He breaks his morals as a Christian, by breaking one of the Ten Commandments in an attempt to stop further bloodshed.
One of my personal biases is gathering information from patient’s caregivers and parent’s, as I feel that they limit the patient’s potential to do anything and assume they are more impaired than what they are. Therefore, this could hinder my interview by not trusting every answer from Susie’s mother, and not willing to ask every question I want to ask. Another bias I would have is seeing a patient in Susie’s condition I would automatically think that the patient is unable to communicate with me, and automatically direct my questions towards the caregiver, which could make the patient feel ignored and not a part of the physical therapy
Many believe that as a result of this, God will not heal their mental illness through any form of religious therapy. They feel that they have to find their own way apart from God to rid themselves of their suffering. So, to incorporate religion into sessions with individuals with this negative mindset, usually worsens their mental illness symptoms. Someone may also feel that they are being neglected or mistreated by their religious community; therefore, many are eager separate themselves from religion. When a person is struggling in faith, religious therapy proves to negatively affect the individual and worsen their mental
The deception of professional hospital staff is an issue that breaches many ethical guidelines, which would not be accepted by the BPS today. The way they were misled into the whole situation with the patients must have put the patients themselves into highly uncomfortable positions during the research. However Rosenhan did not conceal information on any of the hospital staff and had attempted to rid of any clues which may have led to their identification and so maintained their confidentiality. The real debate however is does this study overrule the embarrassment to the professionals and the stress occurred to the
(Samuel, 2009). No one deserves to be abused, and should not looked over if they are. When victims of domestic violence recognize they are in a toxic relationship and want to get out they sometimes find someone they can confide in, someone who they feel is trustworthy. Victims seek help from these individuals hoping to receive encouragement during their tough times, support and guidance on how to get out of the relationship and/or move on from it. It is important to pray for these individuals, because they are trapped in the bondage these relationships and need a way out.
Laura’s death affected many, causing people to feel obligated to stop it from happening to anyone else. While many think Laura’s law is not ethical due to forcing mentally ill to take medication or get help against their will, it is meant to improve the quality of their own lives, and the lives of those around them in the long run. People with mental illness would refuse to get the help they
