the jails in the communities and she loved it and recommended it. Where I currently work we have that population and I have seen how much support and time they are given and how much of a difference it has made for most of them. They look forward to the consistency. Reply Quote Email Author Message Unread Mark as Unread Message Not Flagged Set Flag 1 month ago
Access the profile card for user: Shawn McKinney Shawn McKinney RE: Discussion 2 - Week 1 COLLAPSE Madea, 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. According to (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.

Even though, you want to work with the criminally insane, I believe this is a great opportunity to advocate for mental health awareness within your community. I worked in a few mentally health facility's, that truly need major improvements. One challenge in this field is helping the client to see there purpose in life despite there limitations. I would strongly recommend utilizing the strength
