Discussion 2: Why Is HBSE Relevant to Social Work?

The types of issues and concerns that children, and adolescents, present to social workers are as varied as the people themselves. Understanding how individuals behave in their particular environment will shed some light on their current challenges, but this alone is not enough. Social workers must know how to ask the right questions, as the answers will inform decisions about which resources may be most helpful.

For this Discussion, think about the connections between social work and human behavior and consider why it is relevant to social work practice.

Post by Day 4 an explanation of why studying human behavior and the social environment (HBSE) is relevant for social workers. In your analysis, explain how HBSE is unique from other social and behavioral sciences. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer.

2. Discussion – Week 2

COLLAPSE

Top of Form

Discussion: Parenting and Substance Abuse

As a social worker, you will meet children and adolescents who are in complicated family situations and may require a variety of resources for support. There are many times when these situations involve drug abuse, domestic violence, child abuse, and/or neglect. If these factors are present within a child’s or adolescent’s environment, it will impact their development. As mandated reporters, social workers are legally required to report any suspicion they have of child abuse or neglect to local authorities in an effort to ensure a healthier environment within which they can grow.

For this Discussion, review the case study “Working With Clients With Addictions: The Case of Barbara and Jonah.” Consider this week’s reading in the Learning Resources.

Post by Day 3 an explanation of influences of Barbara’s addiction on Jonah’s future development. Describe an intervention that you would use for Jonah if you were the social worker in this case. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer.

3. Week 2 Assigment

Assignment: Abortion Laws and Ethical Considerations

For social workers, the potential conflict between personal and professional ethics can be a source of great contention. Abortion is a highly politicized and contested topic. It is also one that reflects great diversity in terms of opinion, personal and professional ethics, and legal stances varying from state to state. For this Assignment, consider the topic of abortion, the laws of abortion that exist in the state or country in which you reside, and your own opinions on the topic. Also consider the relationship between your personal and professional ethical stance on the topic and how that may affect your interactions with clients.

Submit by Day 7 a 2- to 4-page paper that explains what you discovered about the laws of abortion in your state or country and why this information might be shared with clients. Further, explain your personal stance on abortion and how your ethical entanglements might impact your work with clients given the professional social worker ethic. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer.

5. Week 3 assigment

Assignment: Analysis of Development Theories

Competent social workers are able to construct a strong foundation upon which to build skills by understanding theories from a variety of disciplines. The disciplines of psychology, education, and sociology offer a number of development theories that can easily be applied to the practice of social work. For this Assignment, consider how a theory from another discipline may shed light on social work practice with children and adolescents.

Submit by Day 7 a 2- to 4-page paper in which you choose a theory of development from another discipline (refer to Erikson, Piaget, Freud etc.). In your analysis, be sure to address how the theory does or does not relate to social work practice. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer.
