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. These cultural expectations could affect relationships with clients and co-workers in the form of their families involvement, body language, gender preferences and so on.
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.
and (d) How do your current attitudes and beliefs affect your interaction with other culturally diverse clients and people of the dominant culture? 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.
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. Considers the social environment in which learning takes place.
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
Daily business habits that convey self interest and lack social feeling towards others contaminate society in general, making it difficult for people to pursue their conscience in the civilized way they desire. 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. Salespeople who act unethically risk their company’s business, their jobs and careers, and possible legal consequences.
