Brittany Sterrett-Jones RE: Discussion 1 - Week 2 COLLAPSE Hello, Personally I think I mentioned before the prison population is a tough crowd to work with. I believe within that population race does play a major part in making up the system. As a social worker you have to really explore ones background and culture in order to determine the best course of treatment. I do feel that this population is overlooked most of the time.

A social worker will need to be open to the possibility of anything and everything and be on top of there job because of the levels that come with the prison system. I think this population would be a challenge for me because you can not be judgemental or carry any of your beleifs or thought patterns into work and be a affective worker on that inmate's case. Carol what is your thoughts and opinion? Reply Quote Email Author

Prof. Tirmazi Reply Quote Email Author Message Unread Mark as Unread Message Not Flagged Set Flag 1 month ago Brittany Sterrett-Jones RE: Discussion 1 - Week 2 COLLAPSE As defined by Ashman & Hull (2014) Cultural Competence is defined as the ability to apply knowledge and skills to social work practice with diverse groups ( Ashman & Hull,2014). When you work in a social service job your main focus is the welfare of the community that you service and you have to be cultural competent in order to provide adequate services. I feel there should be mandatory training in the workplace to help the employee’s understand the diverse population they may encounter. Things are always changing within cultures and society and with that knowledge should come more training to accommodate that change. As stated in Clinical laboratory science journal
