Very helpful and thought provoking. To make sure you don't handle things in a negative way by getting caught up in the moment is interesting.
this module 1 care relationships was very good .
how do people comply with care values
what are the key points
in this case since Arthur already know that Lynne has a deficient, he should have kept his calm, show her love rather than speaking at the top of his voice because Lynne might have heard everything that he said to the care giver.
what could have been the case if Lynne came out but is not willing to talk in the presence of Arthur but just with the care giver? Do you think the situation would have been better?
THIS TOPIC IS NOT BEING WELL DISPLAYED
Caring for others means being mutual, being attentive to the needs of all and making an informed choice.
calm mind will solve the problem
Simple as this,show them ur unconditional love.
This unit will outline the importance of care values when dealing with patients in a care relationship. The following have been regularly highlighted as the key values to be pursued in the provision of social care services:
respect for diversity
care and protection for vulnerable people/children and young people and the community.
With these in mind we will analyze the encounter of Dev with the Durrants.
In his dealings with Lynne and Arthur, Dev is expected to speak and act in accordance with the basic values of the social work profession. CCETSW guidelines include the requirement that he should:
Identify, analyze and take action to counter discrimination, racism, disadvantage, inequality, and injustice, using strategies appropriate to role and context; and
Practice in a manner that does not stigmatize or disadvantage individuals, groups or communities. (CCETSW, 1995, Part 2, p. 18)
In the light of these requirements;
What is Dev’s responsibility when Arthur says, ‘She’s not really all there’ and ‘She should have been put away years ago’?
What should he identify and analyze?
What actions might he take?
If he is to comply with the values base, Dev ought to identify that Arthur is displaying a discriminatory attitude towards Lynne’s learning disability.
Arthur is speaking from a well-established ‘script’ which defines people with learning disabilities as not proper people - less than full members of adult society.
He is positioning Lynne as someone whose actions are not rational, whose interests do not need to be taken into account, and who should be ‘put away’ from the society of ‘normal’ people.
Dev should also analyze the situation in the Durrants’ home and recognize the impact on Lynne of Arthur’s attitudes, since the two of them are cooped up together in their small flat.
Taking action to counter Arthur’s attitudes could involve working with all parties to discuss Lynne’s needs, give recognition to her contribution to Arthur’s welfare, and encourage Arthur to see Lynne’s point of view. (It would not include talk along the lines of ‘sending Lynne away’.) Although his attention is focused on the risk of violence to Arthur, Dev should be careful not to practice in a manner which stigmatizes Lynne.
Some care situations are highly ambiguous.
Care workers’ interpretations of them may be actively contested by clients.
Care work may require renegotiating the meaning of a care situation in partnership with clients and other care workers.
Care workers are responsible for trying to ‘define situations’ in ways which uphold their professional value base.
In this module you have seen the importance of the shared meanings that we construct together - how they enable us to act collectively within social situations.
In particular, you have explored Goffman’s ideas about how those meanings are constructed through:
The way we present ourselves within social situations.
The way we respond to other people’s presentation of themselves and help to shore up their performances.
It is particularly important in a care context to understand the way meanings are negotiated within relationships.
Caring activities often cut across the ordinary everyday meanings we project into relationships. This is particularly the case when care activities involve the body. So awkward situations can arise, where there is confusion about who is supposed to be doing what, and for what reason.
Understanding the scenes set for relationships, the roles people adopt, and the scripts and props used to create the meanings that impact on caring relationships is helpful for understanding the difficulties and supporting an effective relationship.
