RE: Discussion 2 - Week 1
When you say in the first paragraph, lines 3 and 4, "To most people, this isn't a
desirable field" can you tell me where you got this information? I am just
curious because I would like to see some statistical information on the
percentages of social workers based on the fields they work it. For example, do
most of them work for organizations that target the homeless or do they work
with family and children? There was an article that I read and according to,
(Isabel, 2016) the four main fields included
hospice, hospitals, nonprofit or profit
agencies and mental clinics to attendees. During the interviews, not one panelist discussed working
with people in the field that you described in your essay.
(Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018)
they talk about embracing diversity and the significance
of addressing the the different types of issues from any sort of background. As social workers, it will
be imperative to get to know what main issues stem from backgrounds in general. One case that I
found intriguing under the subsection of Intersectionality of Diverse Factors, was The Vue family,
who emigrated from Laos six months ago, according to the text. Also, the six dimensions that the
NASW Code of Ethics, speaks about with developing cultural competency.
I do find the field that you have specified to be extremely intriguing and I have no doubt that you will
do fine. I do hope that once you enter that field, you, along with your colleagues, are able to inititate
a well, formulated action plan to get the type of change that is needed because I know for a fact that
group is severely underfunded and could use the assistance.
