Brittany Sterrett-Jones RE: Discussion 2 - Week 3COLLAPSEI chose genuineness. I think the social worker in the video showed genuineness. I did not really think that she could show anything else in that moment. I felt uncomfortable for her. She tried her best to stay neutral and not to create more frustration and issues in the home. I like that she offered a suggestion on how to help or create a healthy dialog between the daughter and the mother. For me I am not sure if I am adequate at showing concern. I am the type of person where I will show empathy ,but not sympathy. After I show that I am listening the next sentence would be what can we do to make it better let's figure out a plan. I am a strong believer in you get what you put out. I feel like we all create our own situations whether directly or indirectly. I know that we are capable of changing our situations for the better even if we need help, a push or some guidance along the way and that is what I will do as a social worker. You will run into some clients who really do not want to change the situation because that is their comfort zone regardless if it is good or bad. I have to accept that not all my clients are going to put in the worknecessary to overcome their challenges.I am a very genuine person because of situations that I have encountered in my life have helped me grow and learn. I would only expect genuineness from anyone in the field of social services. It is important to keep in mind that you have to wear many hats as a social worker and all of your clients will not be the same.Parker Family Video. Perf. Ms. Parker and Stephanie. Walden Library.

Understanding and being genuine definitely lead to a engaging therapeutic relationship. In addition, being genuine and understanding are primary skills social workers should aspire to develop. What do you think are some best ways to develop being genuine and being understanding? Does professional and personal growth aide in developing these skills?Prof. TirmaziReplyQuoteEmail AuthorMessage UnreadMark as UnreadMessage Not FlaggedSet Flag1 month agoAccess the profile card for user: Roxanne TracyRoxanne Tracy RE: Discussion 2 - Week 3COLLAPSEThe social worker in the video (Laureate Education, 2013) regarding the Parker family exhibited several great skills. Her ability to show a genuineness of concern, and a lack of judgment was succinct. Her ability to display the type of
concern a social worker needs to get across to theirclients was spot on. The social worker kept calm
