Engage with Individuals, Families, Groups, Organizations, and Communities Social workers understand that engagement is an ongoing component of the dynamic and interactive process of social work practice with, and on behalf of, diverse individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. Social workers value the importance of human relationships. Social workers understand theories of human behavior and the social environment, and critically evaluate and apply this knowledge to facilitate engagement with clients and constituencies, including individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. Social workers understand strategies to engage diverse clients and constituencies to advance practice effectiveness. Social workers understand how their personal experiences and affective reactions may impact their ability to effectively engage with diverse clients and constituencies. Social workers value principles of relationship-building and inter-professional collaboration to facilitate engagement with clients, constituencies, and other professionals as appropriate. Social workers:  apply knowledge of human behavior and the social environment, person-in-environment, and other multidisciplinary theoretical frameworks to engage with clients and constituencies; and  use empathy, reflection, and interpersonal skills to effectively engage diverse clients and constituencies. VIGNETTE Billy Brown Case Billy Brown is an 11 years old, and referred to you because it has been determined that he has been abused by his mother. Billy’s teacher reported the situation to protective services when she saw unexplained bruises on Billy’s arms and the intake worker who responded, founded a case of abuse. You are employed by Child Protective Services and will manage the case, which has been transferred to you from the intake emergency worker. Lorene Brown is Billy’s Mother. She is 28 years old, unemployed, and did not complete her high school education. She receives welfare benefits and lives in a small apartment she shares with a man whom she calls her boyfriend. Lorene is divorced and Billy’s father has shown no interest in him since he was born. Lorene is uncertain if he is incarcerated or not, and doesn’t know his whereabouts. Lorene and her boyfriend often engage in sexual behavior in the presence of Billy, who pretends not to see it, as their apartment is a studio. Lorene knew her boyfriend for 2 weeks before he moved in.
Lorene appears to have a problem with alcohol. She also has a very low tolerance for Billy’s acting-out behavior – which resulted in her physically abusing him. Sometimes her boyfriend intervenes when she is being abusive and takes Billy for a walk and talks to him – but mostly he stays out of disciplining or interacting with Billy. Lorene seems to lack basic parenting skills. She expresses dissatisfaction with her live-in boyfriend but feels trapped with him because she can’t survive financially alone. Lorene has very few friends, cannot identify any job skills or career goals, and appears depressed. Lorene does not have transportation and lives in a part of town that has limited community resources. Bill’s classroom behavior indicates that he might have ADHD. It is unclear whether the teacher or the school knows how to deal with his acting-out in an effective way. Billy is often in trouble at school. There are no services to address this issue in the area where Lorene and Billy live and they would have to transport to the next city to receive services. Billy states he hates school and his teachers, who he describes as “mean.” 
ASSIGNMENT Role Identification, Engagement and Assessment 1) Identify and discuss your role by doing all of the following  Discuss the areas of authority and limits that you have to keep in mind regarding your role as the social worker in this vignette. (If you don’t know, engage in research regarding the role of a case manager and CPS prior to answering this question and reflect this research in your answer).  Discuss two ways your role as a CPS worker can impact your rapport building and engagement with this client. Be sure to use authoritative sources to support your answer.  Discuss 6 rapport building/engagement questions you can use to effectively engage these clients (three for the mother and three for the child). Self Assessment/Awareness and Ethical Response in Engagement 2) Explore your self-awareness and ethical engagement responses by doing all of the following:  Identify and discuss at least two personal feelings/biases you could have about the adults in this case that might impede building a positive rapport and engagement with this client system (this question requires appropriate selfawareness of both strengths you have as a worker and areas of growth that exist for you).  Name and Discuss the two (2) priority ethical values or two (2) ethical standards that most apply in this case, which you need to demonstrate in order to communicate empathy, genuineness, warmth and respect to this client system.
Name the ethical principles from the NASW Code of Ethics that relate to the values you described and discuss how they relate to those values.  Describe how you would apply these values and ethical principles to move from biased to objective in working with these clients. 
Theoretical Framework and Engagement Practice Strategy 3) Discuss the stages of development of Billy and his mother according to Erickson’s Psycho-Social Theory of Developmental Stages, (as learned in Human Behavior and the Social Environment) by doing all of the following:  Discuss both the stage and two components of the stage that directly apply for each client.  Discuss how this developmental knowledge impacts your approach to engaging and building rapport with each client.  For both Billy and his mother, describe and Discuss three (3) social work skills that are developmentally appropriate – that would be most effective during engagement, to gain each client’s trust and cooperation if both are resistant to engaging with you. (Please refrain from using general interpersonal skills and utilize social work methods and practice skills you have been taught). Include an authoritative source to support your answers. 4) Write four (4) statements you would use with this client system to communicate the use of understanding and empathy based on the vignette circumstances. These should be high-level empathetic statements. Utilize the attached handout as a guide (Five Levels of Empathetic Response). Your statements should be at Level 3 or higher. Two statements should address the mother and two the child. Explain how these statements demonstrate understanding and empathy.

Using the article provided that focus on workplace ethics, write a post that focuses on how your own workplace ethics are similar/different to Hinduism’s approach. Remember to be specific, use the articles, as well as examples from your real-life experiences.  
Respondents to posts:  aside from responding specifically to the posts respectfully, the quality of the response is important. Simply commenting on how the post was good, well-written, and offering a positive “good job,” you are expected to interact with the substance of the post–that is considered a quality response. Simple positive statements with no reference to the substance of the post will receive no credit.
“In the Buddism Article on workplace ethics, the author talks about how a Buddist needs to be generous and compassionate. The article also writes, “USA should still focuson compassion and freedom of anger and greed.” This is seen in the workplace as being kind to your peers and being generous in how you help and not a burden for your co-workers. This is similar to my workplace in how we all try to get along. We help each other out when needed and we share tips when we get them. The Buddhist approach as described in the article is an excellent guide in how to guide your ethical system and is becoming widely accepted because they make a lot of sense.

Instructions: Ethnography Paper  ASSIGNMENT In an original paper of at least 1,5

Instructions: Ethnography Paper  ASSIGNMENT
In an original paper of at least 1,500 words , write an ethnography of a subculture, group, or community related to your theme.  A group constitutes more than two individuals.  This is largely an informative paper; the goal of the ethnography is to present observations, information, and research on the subculture as a means for educating your audience about the subculture. 
Ultimately, an ethnography should answer this question:  What does studying this group of individuals reveal about group dynamics, culture, and/or human behavior? Like a documentary film, an ethnography tells the story of a group of people.  You may choose an online subculture or an on-campus/community subculture, but the subculture must be a group of individuals whom you can observe and study this semester.  Ethnography is concerned with humans and human behavior.   An ethnography is similar to telling a story; like a documentary film, and ethnography will attempt to provide a “behind the scenes” look at a group of individuals.  Like a story, an ethnography often has a setting (like a workplace, for example) and characters (the real people comprising the group).  Consider the sample Ethnography papers posted in Canvas as examples of this type of writing.
1.  Analyze an assignment prompt and develop a strategy for responding to the prompt;  
2.  Craft an effective thesis statement that provides focus for an academic paper; 
3.  Use writing to show evidence of critical thinking; 
4.  Use ethical field research and firsthand observation methods to gather information;  
5.  Express intellectually stimulating ideas using clear, grammatically correct prose; 6.  Practice using first-person point-of-view in an objective, unbiased manner.
Your paper should include:  
1.   An introductory paragraph and thesis statement.  The introduction should identify the subculture you are investigating.  The thesis statement should focus the paper and indicate, in a single sentence, the most significant characteristics of the subculture.
2.   Body paragraphs with topic sentences.  The body of the paper should address specific characteristics of the subculture.  You may address how the members of the subculture interact with each other, the types of discourse and language used by members of the group, the beliefs and values shared by the group, specific cultural characteristics of the group (including dress, domestic customs, daily activities, involvement with the broader community, festivals and celebrations, etc.), and the organizational structure of the group/community.  
3.   Information based on observation and/or interviews with a member or members of the subculture. 
4.   In-text citations as needed and a correctly formatted APA References page.   
5.   A conclusion that discusses the implications of your findings and/or discusses how the study of this group relates to broader social/cultural issues. 
6.   A correctly formatted APA title page, including a paper title.  An abstract is not required.
Your final draft must cite and make reference to at least 5 credible sources. 
At least one source must be an interview.  You may either conduct an interview yourself or use a published interview, conducted by someone else, to meet this requirement.  Your goal should be to conduct or locate an interview with a member of the group you are studying.   You are welcome to include additional sources and references as needed.  Consider field research methods described in Chapter 11 of the Palmquist textbook.
