counseling. I think it is important for each individual to be able to focus on their own trauma and experience before attempting the whole family issue. I feel that individual counseling is owed to each and every person that has experienced the abuse as they have. Each individual deserves social justice, what is good for them (Center for Economic and Social Justice (n.d.). Center for Economic and Social Justice. (n.d.).

Reply Quote Email Author Message Unread Mark as Unread Message Not Flagged Set Flag 1 month ago Kaitlyn Lee RE: Discussion 1 - Week 4   COLLAPSE The center of economic and social justice (2017) defines justice as “giving to each other what he or she is due”, and goes on to define social justice as the ability to work with social institutions and structures to provide care and access for individuals or groups of individuals that we work with. They go on to define economic justice as how individuals provide goods and services for themselves, and how we engage individuals to have access to be able to engage in services to provide them with their needs. (Center of Economic and social justice, 2017). Upon reviewing the case study for this week with Charo, a survivor of domestic violence, both economic and social injustice is evident.
Focusing on Economic injustices, some of them noted with Charo is currently unemployed due to not having a work visa, assumed issues of food power and control struggles, and potential homelessness (Plummer, Makris, & Brocksen, 2014). What we know about the cycle of domestic violence and the power and control cycle is that typically abusers use isolation (Charo coming to a country where she has no friend or connections), economic abuse (Charo being unable to obtain work due to her work visa), intimidation (throwing food at Charo, shouting, and accusing her of cheating) and other notable ways to control individuals and coerce them into staying, which is the case that we see with Charo (NCDSA, 2017). Social injustices that Charo experiences somewhat go hand in hand with economic injustices as well. The center of economic and social justice (2017) discusses how “social justice encompasses economic justice”, which sometimes make it considerably difficult to define the two. With this case in specific, ways that Charo specifically experiences social injustices is that she has also experienced severe abuse and neglect as a child, she is currently in an abusive home with a husband who has co-occuring disorders (both mental health and alcoholism), Charo also presents with mental health issues of her own including anxiety and depression, and body image issues, and lastly her lack of ability to speak English (Plummer, et. Al, 2014).
