EVALUATING SOCIAL SYSTEM STRUCTURESEvaluating Social System StructuresSocial system is composed of elements thought of as a unit. Each has a vital part that brings balance, as it has a role which makes the system (Congress, 2017). The system has structures that allows it to be healthy with minor issues. It is composed of a primary structures. The structures include boundaries, supra system, interface, input, proposed output, conversion operations, output, and of course feedback (Dale & Smith, 2013). They work with strengths perspective intervention. Social workers use them to focus when elevating a case to help a client.In every system there are boundaries. They serve as a sense of identity, control exchangeswithin the environment, and provider roles for the members of the system. In the Ramirez family,their Mexican heritage is their boundary. This is where the tradition of teaching their offspring to cook traditional Mexican food. It was passed from Maria to Luisa and to Berta, before Maria became sick. Berta, who is 4, has physical and emotional trauma. Her mother, Luisa is young hasa lot of responsibilities, including taking care of Berta, her siblings and Berta’s grandmother Maria. Maria has long cancer he can be very trying. Luisa is going through this alone, however this is logical. She is often upset. A social worker can help by showing Luisa ways to maintain the family and keep them happy and her children safe.
