How would you introduce this sensitive topic with clients in your community, and how might you do so without favoring your own beliefs?

Journal: Incorporating Religion and Spirituality in Practice
In the past, religion and spirituality sat relatively unexplored and untaught as a practice topic in social work programs (Baylor University, n.d.). The reasoning was, in part, that acknowledging religion could lead to directly or indirectly offending the client. But to disregard religion was likely denying the identities of a large segment of the population.
Now, social workers are tasked with exploring religion and spirituality as potentially influential to the client’s well-being, experiences, and perceptions and to take this dimension into account in treatment. How would you introduce this sensitive topic with clients in your community, and how might you do so without favoring your own beliefs?
For this Journal, you consider how you might grow to better serve specific religious or spiritual populations in your community. You also envision what a conversation about religion with a client might look like.
Reference:
Baylor University. (n.d.). Study: Why social workers aren’t discussing religion and spirituality with clients. https://www.socialworktoday.com/news/dn_072415.shtml
To Prepare
Identify the major religions represented in the community where you live and/or work. You can do this be searching online, observing the houses of worship in your area, and/or accessing the Pew Research Center link in the Learning Resources.
Imagine you are meeting with a client who is a member of one of the major religions you have identified in your community.
By Day 7
Submit a 1- to 2-page written journal or 4- to 5-minute video or audio journal in which you:
Describe your approach for discussing religion with a client in your community, including at least two questions you would ask. Justify your approach using the Learning Resources.
Reflect on your comfort and familiarity with religion and spirituality in general. In what ways might you develop to better serve the specific religious and spiritual populations in your community?
Use the Learning Resources to support your thinking. Make sure to provide APA citations and a reference list.

Explain how you applied social work practice skills when performing the activities during your process recording.

Assignment 2: Process Recordings
A process recording is a written tool used by field education experience students, field instructors, and faculty to examine the dynamics of social work interactions in time. Process recordings can help in developing and refining interviewing and intervention skills. By conceptualizing and organizing ongoing activities with social work clients, you are able to clarify the purpose of interviews and interventions, identify personal and professional strengths and weaknesses, and improve self-awareness. The process recording is also a useful tool in exploring the interpersonal dynamics and values operating between you and the client system through an analysis of filtering the process used in recording a session.
For this Assignment, you will submit a process recording of your field education experiences specific to this week.
Note: You are submitting a written transcript, not an audio or video recording.
The Assignment (2–4 pages):
Provide a transcript of what happened during your field education experience, including a dialogue of interaction with a client.
Explain your interpretation of what occurred in the dialogue, including social work practice theories, and explain how it might relate to diversity or cultural competence covered this week.
Describe your reactions and/or any issues related to your interaction with a client during your field education experience.
Explain how you applied social work practice skills when performing the activities during your process recording.
By Day 7
Submit your Assignment
Note: You should also share your process recordings with your field instructor during your individual supervision.
Note: Adherence to confidentiality is required during your process recordings. Do not include real names of clients, supervisors, or social workers with whom you may come into contact during your social work field education experience. Omit any personal identifiers when detailing the interaction with your social work clients.

Also, describe the impact the problem is having on macro level of practice.

1250 words
Readings
Use your Social Work Macro Practice text to read Chapter 4, “Assessing Community and Organizational Problems,” pages 87–115.

Assignment Overview
The purpose of this assignment is to analyze best practice skills and strategies to address a social services organization or practice problem. You first need to identify a problem at the macro level (larger group, organization, community, et cetera). You then conduct a library search of peer-reviewed articles. Finally, integrate best practice strategies into a plan that addresses the problem.
All reference material must be from peer-reviewed scholarly journals, edited books, official government documents, or reliable agency and organizational reports and documents approved by the instructor. Note that textbooks are not allowed as reference material for this assignment. Additionally, newspapers, Internet sites such as Wikipedia, and other non-peer-reviewed reference materials are not acceptable as references for this assignment. Using these materials as references result in failure of the assignment.
Assignment Description
In this assignment, you create a five-page paper identifying a macro-level problem related to a social services organization or practice. Use the Capella University Library and other credible sources. Perform a search for relevant, peer-reviewed articles that have been published in the past five years. You must use a minimum of eight peer-reviewed references in your analysis.

Assignment Instructions
In your paper:
Describe the problem you have identified.
Justify the selection by describing why this is a significant problem worth addressing. Provide evidence demonstrating the extent of the problem. Also, describe the impact the problem is having on macro level of practice.
Summarize and synthesize the peer-reviewed literature related to the identified problem.
Evaluate relevant theories and models found within the literature. Be sure to explore macro level theories or models related to your chosen problem. In your evaluation, explain the impact these theories and models may have on the identified problem and whether the impact improves or makes the problem worse.
Analyze and synthesize best practice skills and strategies related to the problem found within the literature. Explore the variety of strategies used to reduce the problem. These strategies could be about social change or about advocacy.
Combine these strategies and skills into a holistic plan to address the problem, after reviewing the literature.

Be sure that your plan contains a minimum of three integrated strategies.
Explain your reasoning using details and peer-reviewed literature.
Describe which types of strategies best apply to the problem (for example, social change strategies, advocacy strategies, et cetera).

Note: Remember to be as detailed as possible in developing your argument and ideas. Also, include relevant, peer-reviewed APA citations to support your analysis throughout the paper.

Do they invade the person’s space and ask inappropriate questions?

Assignment: Invisible Disabilities Case Analysis
Consider how others react toward a person with a visible disability. Do they stare? Do they move away? Do they invade the person’s space and ask inappropriate questions?
Now consider someone with hidden, or invisible, disabilities, those that are not immediately apparent. In the public’s consciousness, disabilities are largely defined as something physical. Rather than being stared at or avoided, these individuals fade into the crowd. Their disability is not seen; therefore, it is denied. For this Assignment, you explore a case involving invisible disabilities, assess intersectional identities, and consider plans for client empowerment.
To Prepare
Review the Learning Resources on practice with people with disabilities. Pay close attention to the video on invisible disabilities.
Access the Social Work Case Studies media in the Learning Resources and explore Ramon’s case.
By Day 7
Submit a 2- to 3-pages in which you address the following:
What are invisible disabilities?
Explain Ramon’s experience of invisible disabilities.
What other identities may be intersecting with ability to contribute to further oppression for Ramon?
Explain how you would approach Ramon’s case as a social worker. How would you intervene or empower the client?
Use the Learning Resources to support your case analysis. Make sure to provide APA citations and a reference list.
