This essay will look at and evaluate the youth work code of ethics. It will do this by showing how the code applies to and is relevant to working with young people. Whilst doing this it will also talk about why the code was made and who it supports. This essay will then apply the code of ethics to two separate dilemmas a youth worker may come across to come up with an appropriate response to these dilemmas. By doing this it will show that the code of ethics is a vital tool that supports a youth worker to make the right decision and more importantly to give the youth worker a way to know why they made that decision.
This is another good outcome from having a job as a teenager. For some students a job can help them learn more about responsibility. Having to handle the responsibility of a job and of school is a lot but it is achievable. There are many responsibilities that come with a job some being you have to arrive on time and learning to ask for help. If you do not arrive on time to your job there will be consequences.
I also liked this assessment, because it was more through compared to the other assessments I found. The assessment touched on all the areas in a child’s life that would suggest that they needed a counseling service, or was in need of crisis intervention. When completing this assessment for my client, I recognized that this assessment would be extremely helpful for a counselor, or therapist. I tried to not make my client too complex, but for a client who in crisis this would be a quick, and efficient tool to use to quickly get through the explanation stage, and to the healing stage of the
The process is meant to inspire people to act and make a change within the society they live, rather than accepting the challenges and hardship that are present. This is an important life lesson commonly used throughout youth and family services to approach a problem in an emphatical manner by considering others first, ahead of yourself. I have learnt to respect the views of others and this is a skill I value deeply and hope I can continue to improve on further. Theatre of the Oppressed has been an amazing learning opportunity and I value its premise immensely, I have developed further as an individual in many senses and improved skills and weaknesses. I feel everything I have learnt and improved is transferable into my personal and professional life.
It has also presented studies on the footprint of mindfulness and how mindfulness can facilitate self-acceptance, a key component of happiness. Considering this variety of ways in which mindfulness has been used to improve the well-being of study participants, this essay proposes that mindfulness could be used to cultivate happiness for everyone. However a worldwide intervention is not exactly realistic, instead two places mindfulness interventions could be introduced are schools and workplaces. Using the intervention model of the Black S & Fernando R study detailed previously given its results and the results of similar studies which they have cited, an intervention could be designed for schools. However to prevent this interfering with the curriculum and the possibly differing views of parents on its importance it could be piloted first as an extracurricular activity.
The application of an intersectional analysis will help me demonstrate the intersections that stood in the way of this individuals’ success like: identity establishment, social classes, gender roles, and racial discrimination. By understanding the experience of Panchito and his family, I can have a better insight of how to effectively engage and motivate students that I might have in my classroom who are like Panchito and struggle with their literacy abilities. The intersections that stand in the way of success for immigrant youth can be challenging to overcome. However with the proper support and guidance, these hurdles can be surpassed. “For immigrant adolescence, the stresses associated with developing a sense of identity are accompanied and aggravated by the challenges of existing and growing up in disparate cultures.” (Roffman, 2003, p.
In this assignment I will be looking at the Behaviourist perspective with Ivan Pavlov’s (1902) theory about classical conditioning and Bandura’s (1961) Social Learning Theory with observational learning. I will be discussing how I have used human development and learning perspectives in my placement to support young people in their personal and social development with providing a case study about them. I will be writing about how the theories demonstrates effective youth and community work practice including the five pillars of youth work. Behaviourists look at behaviour as a response to a certain event. They think our behaviour is concluded by our surroundings which produces stimuli to we respond, and the situations we have been in the past
My purpose was to advocate on behalf of a child by informing all the professionals present of the child’s wishes and feelings, as well as offer my professional opinion to persuade them on the child’s best interests. From my input, the Child Protection Plan noted specific positive and risk factors that I raised, including arrangement for the child to safely socialise with friends to boost their self-esteem and resilience, and the mother to not have inappropriate conversations in earshot of the child. Although the latter point linked to the mother’s behaviour, she was in agreement because she acknowledged my concern as genuine due to us already having an established rapport. Multi-agency working has been consistent throughout my time on placement, either during professional meetings, like core groups which I have chaired, or on a daily basis via telephone or face-to-face. Whenever information has been shared between professionals it has been done appropriately and respectfully, on a need to know basis and with prior parental consent, unless this put the child at risk of harm.
Although there are many, an example includes the need to increase empirically supported mental health practices that are focused on youth. Also, there is a need to advocate for coordination of services that impact youth while also holding these same services accountable for youth identification and treatment. Another suggestion is to engage families and youths in the treatment planning and decision processes; and, finally, reaching out to community stakeholders is a necessary advocacy strategy in order to increase the awareness and knowledge of mental health issues and resources that effect youth in their
Erikson's theory of Identity Vs Confusion is significant when a young person is coming out, as the two outcomes can greatly affect their futures. A young person who is at "identity" will be confident on who they are as a person, they are more likely to have a positive experience, where as someone who is at "confusion", is more likely to be in denial or be unaware that they're LGBT+. A young person needs to have the appropriate level of preparation and support from those around them, whether this is from their peers or from their teachers. By having this theory, I believe that we are able to give the young person the corresponding support. For example, if a young person does come out, then we can direct them to organisations who might offer
