  • Joe Vaquera United States of America Knowledge is definitely different than common sense. Many knowledgeable people lack common sense and vice versa. Put common sense together with knowledge and a person is better prepared to excel in this world.

  • bonisiwe mvuyane Other There are two main types of social workers: direct-service social workers, who help people solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives, and clinical social workers, who diagnose and treat mental, behavioural, and emotional issues. A social worker can work in a variety of settings, including mental health clinics, schools, hospitals, and private practices.

  • Tracey Wallace Ireland In the Durrants case study they seem to mostly argue. Arthur acts as though Lynn is not capable of doing anything but yet he relies on her for everything. They are company for each other and do help each other. From Lynn threatening Arthur that is what would worry me for their future in the house together.

  • Mohamed Keita United Kingdom if they are treated as invalids they will behave as such and end up requiring too much support from those who are able to do so . in the case study Arthur treats her daughter as if she is incapable of doing anything right without supervision and if you listen to her tone she is really annoyed and hence now defensive and exhibits unruly attitude towards him

  • Ayalla Caesar Trinidad and Tobago I think the social worker should try to act as a mediator for Lynne ans Arthur. They both need each other, so helping them agree on certain things will be easier. Arthur needs to understand that Lynne is very capable of doing things. They deserve to receive social services free. The issue of vulnerability is sensitive. Societies tend to class/label people which can then lead to social disadvantage. The Durants are part of a community and social workers should try to include the community when providing assistance. The Durants are vulnerable but they are also functional and able to care for themselves as a team. Social Workers are facilitators and Dev the social worker has a key role to play in getting the Durants to work together.
