To choose which one is best would matter on what the goal is and who is being served. They both have the goal of getting someone housed but rapid rehousing is faster as housing is the main concern. PSH may take a little longer as they are also working with the person's health issues as well. For similar reasons, the time spent with the client is different as well with Rapid re-housing spending at most 6 months with a client where as PSH could spend a lot of time in the program as it isn't time sensitive. With a shorter amount of time, social workers in the Rapid rehousing have a short window to do social work, which is fine as most case management focus on getting people into housing and not much else. With the PSH, the social worker is doing
As I read the case study of Almeada and baby Anne, I was inspired by her case manager Barbra LaRosa, she provided social care and became the “bridge” between Almeade and the systems. One function of bridging is to narrow the gap between the services being offered and the needs of the individuals who are receiving those services. (Woodside, M. R. (2015). An Introduction to the Human Services, 8th Edition) Ms. LaRosa applied social care to Almeada while she was pregnant with baby Anne, she recognized Almeada's problems in living and since she worked at the school, and Almeada had not returned from summer break, she reached out to her to see what was going on and learn more about her life. Almeada received social care through her pregnancy,
Even with our medical advances, the United States ranks 29th because of lack of health care for some individuals but also the lifestyle Americans have. Another reason is that class statuses correspond with our health outcomes. What I meant about this, is that lower and middle class individuals are exposed to more health threats than higher class. This is the connections between healthy bodies and healthy bank accounts and race/ethnicity. Higher class individuals live in better neighborhoods which have a higher life expectancy.
Swigonski (1991) discussed the effectiveness of standpoint theory in confronting social problems concerning social work. The study of theory begins with the assumption that society is structured by power relations generating unequal opportunities or ideologies. The theory states that in most cases, the oppressed individuals include women and girls where most of their activities within communities are less valued compare to activities assigned to boys and men. To develop a standpoint, social workers and development practitioners presents human communication as a way for affected individuals to engage in intellectual conversations and discussions concerning the complex social problems that surrounds the subordinate status of women and girls in disadvantaged communities. These communication approaches may also include readings, attending talks and workshops, reflection, and participation with groups such as the consciousness-raising groups (Haraway, 1988). The unique contribution of standpoint theory is that it facilitates inquiry from the perspective of the insiders (i.e. women and girls) rather than external categories of professionals or ruling elites (Harding, 1991).
A 75-year-old woman who lives in an apartment building designed for senior living. Recently her neighbors have lodged complaints with the social worker in the building. They state that there are bad odors and roaches migrating to their apartments from her apartment. Her adult son is her primary caregiver and reportedly lives with her but he is not often seen. You are assigned to conduct a comprehensive assessment, make a plan of care and communicate your findings to your supervisor, the physician and those who are authorized to receive information about her care.
In my final reflective journal I want to reflect neglect the patient in clinical sitting. Clinical one B courses in the bridging program enhance us to develop skills, give best quality of care to the patient establish autonomy while in practice.
My 295 experience has provided me with exceptional experiences that I can apply in any work setting. My internship during my first year of the MSW program was at the Transitional Community Opportunities for Recovery & Engagement (TCORE) while my second year placement was at the UC Davis Medical Center in the department of Clinical Social Services. I believe that my 295 experience during the MSW program has helped me grow as a social worker. I would rate my clinical (direct) practice training as average. In my opinion, my field placements provided me with some clinical practice training, but not compared to other placements. I believe my relationship with the agencies I have worked with has remained positive, and I believe my relationship with my practicum instructors has been satisfactory. Overall, I rate my practicum experience as exceeding my expectations.
This process recording will discuss an observation of the caregiver of a client that the student worker has been visiting for the several weeks. This client is a Caucasian female, 71, with dementia; her primary caregiver is her daughter. Although, this client has dementia she is able to respond to question if asked but when conversing she is insensible.
In CBT the social worker will only consider structural influences if the client 's core beliefs have been altered by external factors (Walsh, 2013). In the case study, Asif expressed that he feels self-conscious about his body image. The rationality of Asif’s thinking refers to societies negative attitudes and stigma towards being overweight (Hepworth et al., 2013). Societal beliefs have negative implications for Asif 's emotional well-being when engaging in interpersonal relationships with others. By internalizing the negative attitudes and stigma placed on him by the society he developed low self-esteem and self-criticizing behavior (Walsh, 2013). The social worker will want to bring attention to the connection in Asif’s thinking patterns

Children are the foundation of the future and need to be protected from any harmful abuse to deter any developmental deficiencies that may affect them as an adult. To understand and help raise awareness on child abuse we must define the different types of abuse. The first type of abuse I will define is neglect. Neglect is when there is a lack of attention in which parents must meet child’s basic needs (Leach, 2017). According to Crosson-Tower (2010), neglect can be divided into five separate subdivisions: physical, educational, emotional, medical, and mental health. Physical neglect is when there is a little or no supervision of the child, basics needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and failure to thrive. Educational neglect occurs when the
Child abuse is now spreading increasingly day by day all over the world and can be seen in every group whether it is ethnic or cultural group. Child maltreatment includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and psychological abuse.
Next, lets us proceed to child neglect. Neglect is defined as a maltreatment that refers to a failure to provide adequate needs to a child at each stage. Child neglect happens in all families, either good or poor. Parents might become mentally and physically unable to take care of their children. Neglect falls into several categories. There are emotional neglect, educational neglect, development neglect, medical neglect and physical neglect.
In this paper I will address matters concerning poverty and the means by the ways social divisions by class is associated with poverty. Empowerment of families that endure issues of poverty has existed for years at a global view. Changing the mindset of individuals can help with this change through intervention and support groups in communities.
“Social work is a practice-based profession and an academic discipline that promotes social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversities are central to social work. Underpinned by theories of social work, social sciences, humanities and indigenous knowledge, social work engages people and structures to address life challenges and enhance wellbeing.
