Social work can be very rewarding in a number of ways, but challenges do exist before the reward. One challenge I may encounter if I was to become a social worker is becoming attached to the victim. I think I would feel emotionally connected and want to save them. Before taking the class, I had the mentality that it would be easy to help people and guide them to a better life, but this class has made me realize that it is not always that easy. When speaking to victims, I could see myself feeling sorry for them and wanted to give them everything to make themselves feel better.
Moving west allowed the roles in society to disappear. Women who moved west were forced to break away from their natural place in the family and take on a new role as someone who worked hard to build a new life. “but I am satisfied that with all the disadvantages of raising a family in a new country, there is a consolation in knowing that our children are prepared to brave the ills of life.” This showed that even though moving west had a lot of difficulties tied to it, in the end a lot of people benefitted from being disconnected from society. Henry David Thoreau disconnected with society because
Besides often feeling stuck in the middle between the two, she also feels responsible. I think a lot of cognitive therapy would be beneficial here to change the negative thoughts that have festered in Sophia’s mind over the years so that she would be able to live a healthy life when it comes to being there for her
Despite some mistakes being more horrible than others, the mind works its magic by learning how to improve oneself through those mistakes in order to be better not just for oneself but for others, as well. The past leads to acceptance with the hope that a similar encounter and situation brings about a more positive outcome. In addition to that, Strayed uses other characters to show that they can use the past to forge a better future. With this, everything goes back to the death of Strayed’s mother, which affected Eddie greatly when Strayed says, “He acted like he was our friend instead of our father. Quickly, he fell in love with another woman and soon she moved into our house with her children” (153).
My boss would apply this strategy to be more effective in her leadership among her subordinates. Because most of the time she fell short in leading her employees, she always focuses on the people rather than the behavior. In addition, a simple “thank you” would be pleasant from her to hear. My family and friends could benefit too to become more effective in dealing with people on their perspective profession and be a better person. I would definitely recommend this book to my family, friends, bosses, co-workers and people I deal with because it is not only encouraging but also it demonstrate high degree of respect and value to other people.
The Future Many say picking a career can be difficult, but I knew from the beginning that my future was going to be to helping others create a better future for themselves. Social workers are individuals who care about people, want to make things better by relieving suffering and want to do good in the world. For example, I chose my career after meeting with a social worker when I had many problems going on and I believe that because she made such a positive change in my life, I can do the same in many others’ lives. From that day, I knew I wanted to meet people and personally connect with them and make a change in their lives. There are many advantages to being a social worker.
Those who harm others for the sake of just harming others are known as sociopaths and have mental disorders. They have no regard for the benefit of the human race and take joy in the downfall of others. With the fine line between what is ethically right and wrong we could now conclude that it is not ethically flawed. With many examples, like wealthy business men or business women donating for their benefit and the benefit of the charity no one is harmed. Teachers who are giving extra credit which these imaginary points, for the sake of the less fortunate having another day to eat does not inflict harm in anyway.
Who benefits from this sponsorship in the long run? Poverty-stricken nations could seek relief if the silk-stocking nations aid in supplying goods. Many of the moneyed nations are torn between helping or not those who are less fortunate. Jonathan Swift and Garrett Hardin have two very different opinions on whether to aid those who were not born into riches. Swift uses a satire for the low-income nations of eating and using offspring
The negative attributes outweigh the positive due to the lack of supporting detail from the positive in which helps us better understand that helping people is the right thing to do rather than sitting back and doing nothing but demands that Americans donate every cent of their extra money to help the poor. According to Singer, if we provide a foundation for the misfortune we will not only make the world a better place but we will feel a relief inside that world poverty will soon end. The argument singer gives has no supporting details in which he tries and persuade the wealthy to donate money to the poor without clear thoughts. Each person has positive and negative accountability in helping someone who is in need but also has a duty in helping themselves first. Singer starts by introducing the Brazilian film, “Central Station”, which involves a retired schoolteacher named Dora, who has the chance to make a thousand dollars.
Most people do not seem to do this because of the out of sight out of mind principle. Since we never get to see how our aid actually helps those across the world, individuals are less inclined to help. In his article ,“The Singer Solution to World Poverty” (Landau, 2012) Peter Singer provides a unique argument in that he believes that we are no different than a murderer because we had the capability to stop it and didn’t do so. We have the ability to give what we essentially waste to maximize the happiness of another person and reduce poverty around the world. There are many charities out there, that can take the little money that we have or need to give, and can distribute it to help a magnitude of people worldwide.
