Does Social Work Training include Domestic Abuse?2madiha2017-05-02 00:09:46
I would like to know does the social work degree include any type of domestic abuse training, to prepare you for dealing with adults and children who may be living in this situation. There are many skills social workers require, however, dealing with domestic abuse requires specialist interpersonal skills, for example; empathy, sympathy, listening, awareness and understanding of the psychology, behaviour and issues associated with domestic violence etc...to help support adults who may be experiencing domestic violence and have children living in the home. It would be interesting to know if you think you were well trained to deal with this type of situation, would you know your approach, strategies, signposting etc... and if not, do you think it is relevant to be included? I will be studying MA Social work (SEP '10) and would like to investigate this for my dissertation, I would be very grateful for some answers. Thank You.[View Answers]

Issues with my parents and other family members?0sephanie2012-11-06 04:32:00
I'm a 21 year old female. I have a 25 year old brother, who has ALWAYS been the golden child. Every single thing he does is just so fantastic, and I'm chopped liver. I'll give you a few examples... 1. He graduated from grade 12, then starting working a 9-5 desk job, answering phones. That's all he does, and my parents think he's just king sh!t. Right after I graduated I did three years of university in Psychology, then I transferred to a different university to get a degree in Addictions Counseling. I go to school and work.... but they aren't proud of me at all. But he is sooo fantastic. Also, my grandma is constantly telling me I "need to do something" with my life. Tell that to your grandson. What the hell. 2. I have a fantastic condo with my boyfriend. In order to switch schools, I had to move away from home. We've been together for almost two years. We pay our own bills, or own mortgage, buy everything ourselves. My bother was married for 3 weeks (yipee, good job!) then the broke it off, he moved back home for a few months (this was when I was still living at home) and it was alllll about him. When he finally moved out, he moved into this ghetto apartment five minutes away from my parents house because he's too afraid to be too far from them. My parents were at his apartment non-stop for like the first 2 months he lived there. When we got our condo, they didn't come to see it, and when they do come they stay for a few hours, and never really say that they are proud of us or anything. 3. My man is a very nice guy, and has never done anything to hurt me or to make my family dislike him. He's 26. After my brother left his wife, he started dating a girl who is JUST LIKE his ex-wife (good choice...), I told him time and time again that she's a ***** and is bad for him. He didn't listen. Then over easter her and I got into it. My mom and dad both agree that she was in the wrong and she shouldnt have acted the way she did, but then when they are over when my man and I are in town my parents treat her like gold. They go out of their way to treat her good, when she's burnt every bridge with my family, but they don't even try to involve my man. 4. My brother has lost 12 pounds, and every time my family is all together thats ALL they talk about. My man and I have lost a total of 60 pounds, Ive lost 35 and he's lost 25. And they NEVER say anything about how good WE look. ANNNND last but not least... 5. We recently adopted a puppy from a local animal shelter. When we told my family about it they were just RUDE! All they did was talk about how we will never be able to train her properly and how she will never behave properly because "dogs are like kids and they never listen". I just responded with "You can train anything properly if you're not a f-in id*ot." I'm a 21 year old woman, he's a 26 year old man. DO NOT tell us we can not raise a dog. It's not just my parents. It's my whole family too. I just don't know what else to do. It's to the point where I don't even want to share my accomplishments with them because it just doesn't matter. Sometimes I even dread making the effort to go see them. Please help. I just dont know what to do. :([View Answers]
What Major/Minor Will Benefit Me Most?0andro2012-11-06 04:15:17
I'm currently finishing my bachelors degree that I started in 2000. My degree was heading to sociology (which I excelled in), but now my life has changed. I will be applying to med school in a year and plan to be a pediatrician (I'm realizing my life's dream!). As an adult learner who doesn't have the time or money to screw around I need some advice on my major. I believe MD candidates need to be well rounded in today's society, especially when dealing with children, so I am debating between two combinations: Psychology Major with Biology Minor OR Sociology Major with Biology Minor It is plainly between these two, I'm not looking at other options. I think psychology is always a good addition with a MD degree but, it's also so important to understand family and communal issues to help children as well. Any serious help ideas? THANKS![View Answers]

Jobs involving children and Psychology?0Ramya HELP!2012-11-06 02:15:02
I'm currently enrolled in a Community College and have interests in psychology and working with children/young adults. However, I'm unable to afford more than an Associate's degree at the moment, so are there any decent paying jobs that involve children and psychology that I can get with only an Associate's/limited experience? I've always wanted to work in a children's home or work with troubled kids, but I just can't get a Bachelor's or Masters until I get a decent paying job. I also am interested in human services, social working, and speech pathology if that helps broaden my options. Basically anything involving helping troubled people, I just really want to get my foot in the door and get an entry-level job and work my way up.[View Answers]

Further study and other commitments?0Christy2012-11-05 22:37:57
I’m a second year Psychology student. I am studying hard and aiming for a 2:1! I have been to a careers fair and I'm not particularly interested in any of the work available for me after my degree. They seem to be less linked to Psychology and as I really enjoy the subject I am considering taking a masters in the subject in order for me to get on to a PhD course to become a professional. I know I will have no problem with going where I want to be. Although it's going to take a lot of effort! But I am worried that I will be missing out on getting married and having children. I really want to have children quite young. Around 26-27 age and I am worried I will have to decide between my career and having children/family life. Do people these days have to choose or can both be realistically done the same time!?[View Answers]
Colleges for the stupid?0Kimmie2012-11-05 21:59:50
Before you jump on me, the title is more to get your attention, I'm in my fifth year and about to graduate with two degrees (Geography/GIS and Criminology), and obviously colleges are an important element for many careers (math, science, and technology are top). But I have noticed a dumbing down in colleges, at least in the cal state system to where they are starting to mirror High School. 3 items which are interconnected have come to my attention from my time in such. 1) Way too many useless majors For as expensive as it is to get loans for college it is way more so to get grants from taxpayers for a degree that won't even be applicable to the work you will be doing in the future. These are also subjects that are best pursued in an informal and non institutionalized education, items like Ethnic and Women studies, Philosophy, Art History, Religion, Dance, Communication, Poetry, etc. The cost of attending for a weak major can take 10 to 17 years to make up. One theory I have on this is that more so than getting an education, it is a way to meet, couple up, or get together with other people while having a reason to be at the location, but that's for another topic. 2) Way too many GE (General Education) classes If taking an average load of 14-16 units a semester, you can expect 2 to 3 years dedicated to subjects of absolute irrelevance. The proposed reason is to force the student to “explore himself” and “round out his education”, while I will admit that this can be made fun (like my econ and stat courses), it can be done without requirements and it would make college faster and thus severely cheaper. College should be useful or enjoyable, not hinder some. 3) Some teachers should not teach The social sciences are hit the hardest with the first aspect; I’ve been in several classes where we learned nothing but the political opinions of the teacher or their childhood and if there is time, something from the book we are suppose to read. And a good portion of these classes are simply unavoidable due to requirements and only one teacher handling it. A component dealing with the students is what I believe may have influenced the teachers, something like a “leave no child behind” and that “everyone should go to college”. If a class is on average have a C or lower, then there is a high chance for curves, and it is done so much profs and colleges are trying to solve the issue of gpa inflation which has become quite wide spread across states. While I am part of a upper middle college with regional recognition (best known for nursing, criminal justice, psychology), it still isn’t a national famous college so this point may or may not be diminished in Harvard, Yale, etc. Anyways, What are your thoughts on my piece? What are your opinions on college in regards to infrastructure?[View Answers]

Master's in special education, school psychology, etc?0the prosexionist 2012-11-05 19:16:10
I'm getting ready to apply to grad schools but am unsure of what I want to focus on. My B.S. is in Child Development and Family Studies. I am interested in working with children that have special needs but I do NOT want to be a teacher. I prefer one to one or small groups. I also like the idea of coming up with behavior/treatment plans for the children to focus on their needs. Therapist positions or Early Intervention appeal to me, I enjoy the behavioral/developmental side of things. And although it's not my top priority, salary is a concern of mine. I have 2 years experience in social work and 1 year as an aid in a school for autistic children. In both jobs, I barely make enough to pay all of my expenses. I really want to live comfortably yet do something I'm passionate about. What Master's degree/career would be most beneficial?[View Answers]
Psychology or teaching major?0Deric2012-11-05 19:02:52
I'm in my second year of college and I'm currently a education major. But I've been thinking I want to get a major in Psychology, I am interested in getting a career in either Child Psychology or working with people with depression,anxiety,agoraphobia type things. But I also already am a education major and do like teaching. I also love children and I'm not sure if I want to do all that schooling (plus even more from switching majors) and im not sure if id be able to find a job in psych. Most likely I will be getting a Masters in either degree but ive heard you usually need a phd for a good psych job....any suggestions on what career I could be that would fit everything I nee/want. But I have always had a thing for helping people, and enjoy it a lot[View Answers]

Can someone please tell me if this makes any sense for wanting to be a social worker?0masaya2012-11-05 17:42:45
I first became interested in social work during college while working with adolescents in a residential setting. I received a Bachelors degree in Psychology from California State Unviersity Dominguez Hills. Over the past five years, I have worked with chidlren and families in a variety of settings including as a youth counselor for adolescents with behavioral difficulties and as an outpatient case manager working with children and families struggling with mental health issues. I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, and families. Because of my experience working with adolescents on probation, foster care, and department of mental health, this is the population that I would like to work with a Master's Degree in Social Work. I want to focus my research interest on the high rates of recidivism among African Americans and Hispanic males, who continually tend to come back into our system. I would like to help them transition into a more independent way of living instead of staying into the system. I was also homeless for a period of my life so this also helped my decision to want to become a social worker. I experienced some form of being a vulnerbale individual in my life and I want to be able to help others that are often discriminated, vulnerable, marginalized, and less fortunate indiviudals in our communities.[View Answers]
Please, if you have a real idea,can you explain these following events that I,personally have knowings of?0juliannme2012-11-05 17:15:50
First,please, if you doubt them happening→believe I am an internet troll; just ignore this question. What I wish to have explained are very in ordinary. They truly happened. Think, to/for what gain or purpose would I wish them to be known lest explained. No, I am not upon drugs. No, I have taken what "meds" I need..→Ritalin for my ADD. I am of solid mind and function at a high level job as an efficient hedge fund manager,no, I am not trolling. Should you believe any of the former...ignore trying to explain these events. To me they are almost haunting. 1) My cousin whom never lived long enough for me to know told his mom, dad, &grandma whom lived with them, at age almost 4 years old that he was not going to be with them very much longer. He told them he saw "angels" &they spoke to him that he would shortly go with them to a wonderful place &to have no fear. Now,a child of 4 is just learning to speak &I know for certain { I hold degrees in psychology} that children do not truly have a grasp upon what death really means till prepubescent{8-10}. How would he know "angels" they were, 3 year olds don't have knowings of "angels." He told that to them upon several occasions. Now, my aunt &uncle had difficulty conceiving child &were very upset that their tiny boy was talking such of..well, death. He was the image of health I am told. About 4 days after he told that to them he somehow acquired acute meningitis. He died in my uncle's arms on way to hospital. How was it he..knew he was going to die? I can't ever get over that. 2) My grandma { the same one I mentioned above } was having strange dreams for about 2-3 years. In her dreams she was being chased by a dark figure trying to grasp her. She always managed to escape its grasp. One morning as she awoke she told my aunt &uncle who she lived with that she will never see another sunrise for in last night's dream the dark figure had grasped her by her heal. They were concerned &called my mom about it; I heard the conversation since we had 2 telephones connected in our home. She was in100% perfect health. She went for regular physical exams. She was 59years old. About 5:00pm that day she suddenly literally "dropped dead." The cause was a brain aneurysm. How was she able to know she would die that day? There aren't any symptoms of having a brain aneurysm? How can that be explained? 3) When I was a child of about 9-10 my family went &took me along to some shrine in Quebec, Canada. I forgot the name. Upon entering this shrine I felt a feeling I can't describe to you. Best described I was entering a "special-profound" place. There was an alter &to both sides of the alter were piles of wheel-chairs,canes,walkers,crutches &the likes. I mean HUGE piles. We stayed at a motel not far from the shrine &for 7 days we entered it. I disliked it; it kind of gave me a strange feeling. Upon our last visit a man &I suppose his wife entered the shrine &were close to us at the alter. The man was in a wheel-chair &had a large "tank" with tubes from it running to his nostrils. { Oh,yes, I know now what his trouble was, but not then } He scared me greatly. Both he &his wife went into what I guess was deep prayer. My mom &dad &me were right next to the couple when he lifted his head up,tore the tubes from his nose,stood up crying &he then added his tank,tubes,&wheel-chair to one of the huge piles. He &his wife walked from the shrine saying "Praise the Lord." What is the plausible explanation? I haven't any. And, for what the reasons? These 3 events are but 3 of quite a number of other such unexplainable events I witnessed. Now,again,if you think me trolling just ignore this. { I can never understand why anyone thinks trolling is fun; it isn't at all. } What scientific-earthly explanations are there to these events? Please,events like these I made lettre of are among similar events I seem to come upon &wish them explained. Can you explain them? Please do for they are so daunting to me. Thank you.[View Answers]

Character Analysis?0himaat2012-11-05 16:32:42
So I'm writing this character analysis for english. My teacher says that we could write anything we wanted we just had to describe William Butler, age 25, from New York You guys know how these things work so i was wondering what everyone thought of it before i turned it in tomorrow here it is: William Butler, Age 25, New York City William was a bright young boy as a child. He smiled all the time and was extremely intelligent for his age. Sadly, this did not last. His parents divorced and he went into two years of depression. He then went through a Goth phase, and had very few friends except for the ones who listened to heavy metal with him. All through high school he went through this phase until he decided, for he was about to go off to New York University for psychology, that he was going to change into some one more personable. So now, William is a well developed adult with slight manic depression. He is an average height of five foot nine and an average weight of 150 pounds. He has the average hair color of mud brown along with average mud brown eyes. He has an average girlfriend named Carree, who is hoping for a more not so average relationship. She stares at her co-worker who sits across to her, constantly wearing a leather jacket and combat boots. William knows this, and sometimes wishes he was less average. William has a job at Kings County Hospital Center as a secretary. “Average people get average jobs son,” Something Williams father Hennery has said since the day William graduated. Hennery has always believed his son was average and would never amount to “nothing.” William has tried to tell his boss that he is not happy, and has all the degrees to get a better job, but his boss secretly, or maybe not so secretly, hates William and would like anything to see him suffer. And he does. William and Carree met at a restaurant not too far from their current home in Kings County of Brooklyn, New York. They instantly clicked. Seeing as they were both average people not wanting to be average anymore. They live on the corner of Brooklyn Ave. and Snyder Ave. next to the Holy Cross Cemetery. William has been petrified of cemeteries since his cat Moo Moo was buried alive there when he was nine years old. Since then he has stuck with the always dependable gerbil. Carree never believed William was stunningly handsome, just average.[View Answers]
