Unit 204 Outcome 4.1 Explain how the likelihood of abuse may be reduced by; * Working with person centred values A person centred approach is counting and treating everyone with respect. Allowing individuals to make their own choices and decisions, respecting their views will gain their self esteem and will help them recognise their own rights and values which will protect them from being abused. It can also help create relationships between staff and residents so they gain somebody to confide in. * Encouraging active participation This promotes inclusion, making an individual feel some self-worth. Will promote confidence and will also help gain friendships.
Understand ways how to reduce the likelihood of abuse We have to encourage more people to speak up if they feel abuse is taking or has taken place and this will reduce the likelihood of abuse taking place or repeating. The likelihood of abuse can be reduced by: * Working with person-centred values - include the individuality of the person, the rights of the individual, the individual’s choice, the individual’s privacy, the individual’s independence, the individual’s dignity and the individual being respected. If an individual is considered to have a say in what he or she wants and is at the centre of any decision, it will be more unlikely that there is abuse. The individual will know what suits him or her and will not get so frustrated.
If progress is being made, we need to continue to encourage them and congratulate their progress. Identifying strengths and abilities in the individual that contribute to them dealing with the issue is essential and accepting the individual's values is paramount (even if we may not agree with them). Active listening skills need to be used when supporting an individual. While working with an individual who was trying to stop substance use we worked together to identify the triggers and when the individual relapsed we discussed what had happened and what they would need to do or avoid doing in order to succeed. Although it can be difficult to understand or accept when an individual we are supporting relapses, we have to remain impartial and remember , above all, that we are only human.
Encouraging people to be independent even if they choose riskier option. Giving them dignity and respect in all aspects of their life. When implementing all the above the carer has created productive environment and the professional relationship has changed into more equal partnership. 2. Explain why it is important to work in a way that embeds person centred values (1.1.2)
Also if they are able to become more independent, they are more likely to become more confident, which means they may be able to do more things for themselves, therefore making them more independent, which therefore benefits the individual as they are in a positive atmosphere. Another reason why living at home can benefit an individual is that they may have more time spent with loved ones and are more likely to get visits from friends and family. This is important as it keeps that sense of ‘normality’. If the individual was in a care/residential home, they may not get as many visitors as the family/friends may feel uncomfortable in that environment or the family/ friends may be busy during the visiting hours. Another factor is that the individual is able to maintain a little more control over daily routine, which is important as this leaves the individual feeling cared for and listened to.
Keeping active is good for all of our body systems. Losing independence can have a negative impact on individual health and well-being. 2, Explain how active participation promotes independence in the task of daily living Active involvement in learning to develop life skill can help individual to become independent. Learning in a safe environment and knowing that there is support at hand in case it is needed will give a individual confident and reassurance. Some individual who are being supported in the community will find care worker support and encouragement invaluable.
All individuals have the right to communicate through their chosen method and their choice should be acknowledged and respected when supporting them. Communication is a basic human right, without communication an individual is unable to realise or exercise their rights. 1.2 Ways in which my own role and practice can impact on communication with an individual who has specific communication needs would be to speak directly to the individual and not from across a room. By speaking to the individual face to face, communication can be absorbed better. It is also important that I speak slowly and clearly, using terminology that is at a level the individual can understand.
These negative feelings can also determine how well a person is feeling physically. Having self-esteem can have a positive effect on a person’s well-being. Bx Describe two attitudes or approaches which could promote the well-being of an individual using the service Listen to what the individual has to say. All people have feelings and thoughts and these should be taken into consideration. People have choices and encouraging them to make informed choices gives confidence to make the right decisions for them.
Members of the team have confidence in themselves and have a positive attitude; this only motivates them to achieve the common plan and purpose. | The team maybe letdown when they are unable to accomplish small success, which could affect their ability to complete larger goals. Should team members lack vital skills, this may inhibit the team from being as successful as they thought. | Mental modelsTeam share the same vision on how the work will be completed | Successful team has collectively shared their vision, knowledge and how the work will be accomplished. Involving team members in discussion on their perspectives and expectations will help build agreement with the group and provides an accurate mental model.
Unit 4222-324 (HSC 3029) Outcome 1, 1. Explain the importance of meeting an individual's communication needs. The importance of meeting somebodies communication needs is because if they cannot communicate effectively then you can understand what they are trying to express. Different people have different communication methods or methods that they prefer to use, so we should support them when using their preferred method of communication. Without communication people cannot express their needs or wants, so therefore it is a basic human right.
