was electrocuted when I was 12, and has had a minor brain injury since. It is important that when the social worker is addressing my mother that she is understanding on how my mother communicates and that she may be forgetful at times. It is important during these times that the social worker practice tolerance and patient. Along with patience and tolerance the
social worker will need to practice empathy. My mother has had a lot of loss in her life, family members wise and gets very downon herself about not being able to do the same kind of work due to her brain injury. I think this may provide the social worker with an opportunity to practice the strengths perspective.Lack of cultural awareness on the social worker’s part would hinder the success she would have with my family. Lack of cultural awareness on the social worker’s part could be offensive to my family and turn them away from wanting to receive help and or resources. Lack of empathy and tolerance could hinder empowering my mother and other family members.Thank you,JacquelynReplyQuoteEmail AuthorHide 3 repliesMessage UnreadMark as UnreadMessage Not FlaggedSet Flag1 month agoKathyanne Goodridge-Purnell WALDEN INSTRUCTORMANAGERRE: Discussion 1 - Week 5COLLAPSEWhat a brilliant post!

I would give the social worker techniques and things to avoid with communication with my mom. I would also give the social worker strategies to use when approaching my mom about her career.

I have been asked if I am Puerto Rican or Hispanic, African American, even someone of Asian descent. I am biracial from an African American father and French Canadian mother. However, being raised many years by my African American grandmother after the death of my father, and never meeting any of my Canadian relatives, culturally I identify as African American.
