Q 5 – Explain how diversity impacts on practices and experiences on person behaviour, interpersonal relationships, perception and social expectations of others. A – Acknowledge similarities and differences that exist between yourself, co-workers and clients. Culture plays an important part in a person’s behaviour, thoughts and how they relate towards others. An individual's cultural perceptions and expectations will directly impact on the way they work with each client and their co-workers; a failure to recognise cultural differences may cause serious problems when they are dealing with others in the workplace.
For example, a conversation between a social care worker and an older person might trigger an unconscious response in the social carer that could lead to discrimination against the service user. Therefore, if the social care worker is not tuned into their own emotional needs, reflecting on a regular basis, being mindful and attending supervision, they could be placing the welfare and safety of their service users at risk of not receiving proper care and attention. The social care worker should be someone who genuinely wants to work with vulnerable older people. Be consistent and congruent in their careing roles. Good communication skills are essential and following guidelines and HIQA standard to ensure best practice at all time.
Most important, this model allows for investigation of clients ' level of conformity and idealized identification with the dominant culture as well as their rejection of their own culture.”
This emotional response can vary from irritation, anger, affection, feeling of empathy or even a recollection of my past life experiences that I once had myself. This could lead to causing my advice to differ then it usually would, and in a sense cause me to give advice that will allow me to unconsciously live "vicariously" through my client and their issues. I believe that the unavoidable power inequality can also come to play here with this form of countertransference, initially due to the client’s vulnerable locus of control. They come and they seek the counselor 's advice asking what to do, kind of like " Mirror, Mirror on the wall … where do I go from here?", with me being the mirror, in turn making my answer want to be what I would do or what I would have done differently in my past experience. The idea of vicariously living through my client come through the countertransference that is taking place, due to my cloudy judgment
Anti-oppressive practice focuses on the structural inequalities and places the blame that service users internalize on the structures and systems themselves (Ajandi, 2018). Humanistic and social justice values and ideas shape anti-oppressive practice (Healy, 2015). They address inequalities that affect opportunities of service users, due to the interlocking of social relations and oppression (Burke & Harrison, 2002). AOP aims to identify oppressions and define ways in which social workers can attempt to become anti-oppressive, avoid discomfort, and end oppression to service users (Strega, 2007). It highlights mutual involvement between the social worker and the service user, challenging forms of oppression and inequalities (Burke & Harrison, 2002), and presents the idea that service users do not occupy a “single identity”, but instead have interlocking oppressions that work together to put clients at a social disadvantage (Strega, 2007).
The community has symbols that creates meaning, also contributing to their identification, because of those symbols a social worker get to be able to work with clients. STRENGTH The relationship between meaning of symbols and a person’s behavior, this theory provides a bond between how an individual behaves is related to the meaning of objects and events. Provides the ability to understand small scale human interaction, it enables the understanding of family interaction. Recognizes that beliefs and opinions of reality are changeable, the belief people have on something can actually change and become part of reality.
However, the burdens of responsibility can lead individuals to attempt to isolate oneself from those they love, yet it is impossible to completely remove oneself from all forms of emotional attachment. Rather, the individual may subconsciously internalize the welfare and hardships faced by others over the well-being of oneself and this can cause a forced deprivation of help and love due to the obligation that one feels to be owed in their responsibility. It is human nature to feel guilt and burdened by the consequences of love and responsibility, but although burdensome, responsibility is crucial in illustrating the inherent empathy and fragility present in all
Even the people with good motives are forced to, under the constraints of the business world, defend themselves to the best of their abilities neglecting morality. Society usually neglects the fact this personal protection includes damage to another person. This constant practice of making decisions for selfish reasons that is encouraged by society’s work force deforms people’s decision making skills, making them more immoral. Self interest is the giving into social pressures in order to survive in
In addition, boundary crossing such as home visits, or meeting with clients outside the office setting may potentially benefit the clients in significant ways. Furthermore, the clients cannot readily judge the appropriateness of the counselling dynamics for themselves and need guidance (Webb, 1997). Their expectations can be largely based on cultural norms, or influenced by their vulnerability and intimacy when entering the counselling relationship. Because of the vagueness, many counsellors struggle with establishing appropriate boundary as it can easily lead to confusion and mismanagement. (Webb, 1997).
Scammers are always an issue and there are a lot of dishonest people out there trying to take advantage of those that are unaware. However, for professional salespeople, I think ethics do not get in the way of success in sales. I think it is the opposite, ethical behavior builds trust and is a requirement to be successful in the long term for salespeople. Their reputation and livelihoods depend on the relationships they build with their customers and their reliability to their organization.
As we have discussed Stephanie’s heritage, we have seen the impact a person’s cultural heritage can have on them as a counselor. As we have discussed, it’s important for the therapist to have self awareness about not only their cultural heritage, but also areas they are prone to privilege and also discrimination, as both of these can lead to barriers in the therapeutic alliance. As counselors work on becoming culturally competent counselors they will want to reflect on their own bias, assumptions, and stereotypes, gain knowledge about various cultures, and utilize this information in a way that will make them culturally competent counselors.
I believe the six core values of the NASW code of Ethics, although the most germane to me, if I was a social worker, would dignity and worth of the person. Many times a client may feel embarrassed or self-blame in their situation. As social workers, it is important to empower our clients. When talking to a client, it is important to refer to them as a survivor rather than a victim. In the article, it explains techniques to identify and express feelings.
Seeking help, asking for advice, receiving feedback, and sharing information among members are required for group success. However, engaging in these activities sometimes brings the risk of being viewed as incompetent (A. C. Edmondson, 2002). In a psychologically safe group environment, members expect that these activities are accepted and respected by others, and no one will embarrass themselves by publicly showing their weakness or offering their views (A. Edmondson, 1999). When intra-group gossip constantly occurs, perception of psychological safety tends to be low, because as human nature, people are concerned about maintaining a positive self-image, forming a sense of belonging, and being acknowledged by others (Melwani, 2012). Therefore, when others’ behavior often becomes the target of gossip, group members may feel as if they are being closely monitored (Melwani, 2012).
The sales staffs has already voiced their frustration because the customers informtion is not being passed along to the designers. If they don’t fix the problem it can lead to the programmers and designers having to redo the work they completed because it isnt what they want. The customer could wind up finding a new company because they did not do what they requested. The Carmichael’s could start to lose revenue due to losing customers or having to pass on jobs due to being behind because of the staff having to go back and correct. Lack of communication can easily ruin a
If a person was to work at a fast food place argues with a customer that person would lose their job. In the corporate world if you even miss a day of work your job could belong to someone else. This shows that Martin was let off easy, he did something bad and did not lose his job. It shows that the officials in the police are lenient, which make the officers feel as if they are untouchable. When a person feels untouchable they tend to do what they want which will start to cause power abuse.
