In the years since Frankenstein’s release many readers of the famous narrative have come to regard Victor Frankenstein with little affection. They cite his selfish and reckless behavior, which frequently cause the misery which torments him. However, Victor’s self-centered nature, goes beyond simply a flaw of character, it is indicative of a deeper affliction, narcissistic personality disorder; or NPD. NDP is characterized by an over inflated sense of self, beyond what is developmentally appropriate. Classic symptoms of NDP “are grandiosity, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration.

Professional self-awareness is widely considered a necessary condition for competent social work practice” (Kondrat, 1999, 451). As a social worker, I job to ask of use to remain objective by not imposing our behaviors, values, and beliefs on our clients. When addressing “self” it calls for me to understand my cultural background and iron out all biases. Once the “self” is address then I can work clients of different cultural backgrounds. “Practitioners should prepare intellectual emotional, and clinically in anticipation of working and serving Hispanic clients” (Castex, 1994,298).
Anti discriminatory practice is any practice meant to counter discrimination based on race, class, gender,disability, etc and promote equality by introducing anti discrimination policies in care settings. As much as we’d like to think that discrimination within care settings did not exist, sadly it does and it’s an issue that affects many individuals each day. The government recognise that it is important to ensure that there are laws in place in order to ensure that people get the right treatment. The Equality Act 2010’ states that all individuals must be treated fairly and equally.This law is there to ensure that people are given care which meets their needs and is in their best interests. Professionals must ensure that they are giving people access to the services that they need and require, providing advice and
If the goal is to create a society in which marginalized groups are equal citizens, then Social Work has an obligation to demand a moral-system that resonates with that objective. There must be a communal (collective) account of injustice, unfairness or oppression for any government-enforced redistribution or effort for reform to be rendered equally or indiscriminately. Without an emphasis on interdependence, a caring society, empathy, and intersectionality, Social Work’s assistance or governmental interventions in people of colors’ communities cannot truly be anti-oppressive, but rather temporary solutions to intergenerational inequality, crises, disparities and social
“The Age of Dignity” is written by Al-Jen Poo, who is a director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA) and co-director of the Caring across Generations campaign. The author discusses challenges faced by the elderly in society due to lack of supporting culture. She mentions, “By 2035, 11.5 million Americans will be over the age of eighty-five, more than double today’s 5 million, living longer than ever before.” It is necessary to value the care of old people so that people can age with dignity and security. To support the care of older adults, a culture needs to be built where elderly are respected in the society. The author provides various solutions to transform elderly care such as long-term care insurance and financial incentives to care providers.
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).
Prior to taking the Elders course, I had limited interactions with older adults and was not aware about the services that are needed for this specific population. Throughout the course, I was exposed to many readings, lectures and guest speakers that enabled me to gain copious amounts of new information that gave me a deeper look into the lives of older adults. I realized the importance of social workers’ understanding, and familiarizing themselves with policies that affect this population. Throughout social work schooling, students are exposed to many social theories, but this class specifically focused on the ones that directly apply to older adults. According to McInnis-Dittrich (2014), Social constructionism is a theory that people of all
You cannot disregard someone’s race. “Race is an important variable that affect people’s lives” (Sue, 2013 P.170). If counselors were color blind they will not be successful at helping people. It is the counselor’s responsibility to understand and accept people from different races. This also plays a part in gender equality.
