Brittany Sterrett-Jones RE: Discussion 1 - Week 2COLLAPSEHello, 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.ReplyQuoteEmail AuthorMessage UnreadMark as UnreadMessage Not FlaggedSet Flag1 month agoAccess the profile card for user: Tina JamesTina James RE: Discussion 1 - Week 2COLLAPSECarol, I admire you for wanting to become a social worker for the prison system, because not only do you have a diverse group you have a collective group. 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 challengefor me because you can not be judgemental or carry any of your beleifs or thought patterns into work and be aaffective worker on that inmate's case. Carol what is your thoughts and opinion?ReplyQuoteEmail Author

Not being able to see the non-verbal cues, gestures, posture and general body language can make communication less effective.ReplyQuoteMessage ReadMark as UnreadMessage Not FlaggedSet Flag1 month agoMohammad Tirmazi WALDEN INSTRUCTORMANAGERRE: Discussion 1 - Week 2COLLAPSEMs. SmithThank you for an insightful post about the importance of cultural competence in working with incarcerated African American males. How does the article youread support the culturally competent skills you mentioned? Did the article
provide some skills or have a view of what cultural competence is and how it plays out in social work practice with incarcerated African American males?Prof. TirmaziReplyQuoteEmail AuthorMessage UnreadMark as UnreadMessage Not FlaggedSet Flag1 month agoBrittany Sterrett-Jones RE: Discussion 1 - Week 2COLLAPSEAs 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 bemandatory 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
