Disability is one of the many things that we all face every day in one way or another. Our attitudes towards it can be affected by multiple models whether that be via family/friends, the media, or a personal experience and sometimes via assumptions we make without realising it or whether we know those assumptions to be true or not. My personal attitudes towards people with disabilities have been shaped by family, personal experiences and especially via the media. Media The media is a universal tool that we all use, it can provide information to us and it can also shape our opinions on different topics. "The media can play an important role in presenting disability issues in a way that could dispel negative stereotypes and promote the rights
It is unenlightened that our society still defines people with disabilities based on their medical and biological condition rather than with integrity. Therefore, It is also essential that the respect and dignity of this population be a top priority as we the social workers and the learning public continue to educate others, especially those who have little or no knowledge about people with disability. I believe this approach will correct the negative perceptions portrayed in the media about disability. However, although our society in many instances has made the concept of disability a social construct, by characterizing the behavior of certain disabilities like Parkinson and Cerebral Palsy, disabled people still live to thrive which is
Cultural diversity in the workforce is far to importance to give up so quickly. Specifically, Durbin (2010) examines many studies that have shown the value diversity has on an organizations bottom line. Two advantages mentioned by Durbin (2010) were “multicultural decision makers have an advantage in reaching a multicultural market” and “people from culturally diverse groups prefer to buy from a company with a good reputation for managing diversity” (pg. 412-413). I would argue that these two aspects are too valuable to consider removing Erin from this position so early.
Children who are forced into labor are at greater risk for malnourishment, poor health and death. Since they do not receive enough nutrition, they are at higher risk for getting various diseases. These children often work in very hazardous conditions, often the employers do not care at all about immature children who are almost always starving, and continue to work for long hours with little or no break. Moreover, it is important for human beings to enjoy every stage of their development. A child should play with friends and make memories for a lifetime.
Clients with mental health issues will almost always need a strong sense stability and support when working towards recovery. As social workers, it is important for us to work from a lens of the recovery model while doing case management. The recovery model, encourages clients to be actively involved in the development of their treatment plans and to help apply hope and self-determination to the client (Regehr, Glancy, 2009). This is often a different approach than is taken in medical settings. Often, it is reported that clients do not have much say in their course of treatment while they admitted to the hospital.
Huthmacher says that not only is the middle class important and also considered the progressives but he includes the lower class too. Perhaps the Lower class is even stronger He strongly believes that the workforce was important at this time and that if names or key terms in society had to do with anything with the workforce that the “Middle class was set out to right the wrongs of these times”. However, Huthmacher makes a valid point stating that the lower classes outlook tended to be more practical and possibilistic than some of the middle-class Progressives who allowed their reform aspirations to soar in hopes of change. These progressives sought to reform society through Urban Liberalism and planning their facts before acting upon
Festinger’s early advancements in social comparison (also coining the social comparison theory) led to the genesis of the term. Though the theory is still renowned among psychologists as one of the most important concepts within the field, there is still some debate of the term’s external validity. Nonetheless, most agree that the theory of cognitive dissonance is perfectly applicable to most social situations, and studying the theory further can aid us in making healthier decisions and help us create preventative measures against negative
1. I think that consulting with other professional staff members is the most important because that is kind of self-explanatory with in the name, Correctional counselor. It talks about developing treatment plans that require special emphasis and change to increase the possibility of reaching a desired level of adjustment and that is the biggest thing in correctional counseling, helping the patient change for the better. I also think that the ability to prepare comprehensive evaluations is the most important competencies needed because you might know all their needs to know about correctional counseling but if you can’t find a good way to prepare the evaluation then why does any of the practice, and knowledge matter. 2.
They also may have a psychological disposition that may in itself protect their mental health, like being resilient.

It offers a real chance to review and revise what equal opportunities is supposed to be about and how a positive change can be brought about in the workplace that benefits all. In this essay I talked about managing diversity, what it means and how it is more than just a ‘business orientated catch phrase for employers’. The differences between equal opportunities and managing diversity was discussed as well as the importance of justice and how it is a main concern and outcome for managing diversity. However the question still remains will many organizations implement this management philosophy or will they use the term ‘managing diversity’ for the appeal rather than the benefits? An organization that implements this and takes care of the social wellbeing of their employees will automatically see the differences and notice that justice is of high priority just as much as utility is, as ethical and moral business cannot be managed without doing so.
