Sometimes in order to treat people equally you have to treat them differently. All people should be valued for their individuality and offered any support that they might need.Everyone should be treated with the care, consideration and respect that they have a right to and given the same opportunities to learn and achieve as others.InclusionInclusion is a process to include everyone and meet individual needs. It is a human right for every individual.It means that everyone counts and differences should be valued, respected and celebrated.Inclusion involves identifying barriers that prevent people from taking part, being involved and fitting in. Knowledge is needed to understand these barriers which can only then be broken down. It is everyone’s responsibility to remove these barriers.
Discriminatory practices are very influential on the people that use health and social care services; I will explain these effects and give examples. (1) Marginalisation is when you feel like you are not liked within a group or in other words you don’t feel like you are a part of a group or society.In health and social care everyone should be treated equal and marginalisation is not allowed. An example of this is a youth worker excluding a homosexual teenager based on his sexuality. (1) Disempowerment is to make someone feel devalued this could happen to either an individual or groups. The victim could be discriminated by a valued group/individual or powerful group/individual.
Not labelling or stereotyping individuals that we meet. Inclusion is about ensuring there are no barriers that exclude people or make it difficult to participate in society. This means working to reduce any barriers or obstacles that prevent people living their lives as fully and as equally as all others. This can be achieved by providing information in audio format or braille, providing automatic doors, making sure that the processes for obtaining support are easy to access and by asking what changes need to be made for an individual to participate and then making the changes happen. Discrimination is when a person or a group of people are treated less favourably than everyone else.
Conforming to the needs of a group can stifle your true identity It is seen through life that to be a part of a group of people we must adjust to the needs of the group, therefore altering aspects of our true identity. In times of pressure or difficulty, qualities and characteristics of a person can change to avoid the investigation you would encounter from the group if you were your true self. It is the tendency for all people to attempt to belong to a group, by any means necessary, in order to feel secure and wanted. Conformity is displayed particularly by weak minded individuals who fear loneliness, and when alone feel too afraid to stand up for themselves. It is seen that there are three types of conformity: compliance, internalisation and identification.
Diversity is about acknowledging your prejudices, allowing people to be different and respecting these differences. It is also about challenging others if necessary and speaking up for the individuals you support when they cannot speak up for themselves. We live in a diverse society, where people vary in so many ways, including in their age, sex, physical characteristics, race, beliefs, values and preferences. Equality does not mean that everyone has to be treated the same. People have different needs, ambitions and situations.
Sexual abuse; bruising around personal regions, damaged/stained underwear. Emotional abuse; depression, anxiety, low self esteem. Describe factors that may contribute to an individual being more vulnerable to abuse Inadequate training may lead to carer administering incorrect care at certain time or fail to fully carry out the correct care. Poor communication skills may lead to the carer not being able to identify signs of abuse. Not carrying out the correct checks on an employee would lead to those people put into a job role they are not fit to do.
Ethics Awareness Inventory which is where I did my assessment which supports my principles that human beings are entitled to basic rights; consequently, actions have to respect the rights of others. Someone who does not respect other people is not respected person. This person has to treat others the way he would like to be treated. As individuals we suppose to have the right to make our own decision, and if those decisions affect others in a harm way we already know there are consequences for those who attend to break the laws they could have everything in their own way regardless of whom pays the consequence. Those unethical behaviors we could not accept, because that will have affected in us all.
Al forms of discrimination will harm service users. Discrimination can affect all aspects of a person’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social health and well-being. Some of the effects of discrimination are shown in below: .Withdrawal from other people .A loss of confidence in own abilities .A feeling of not belonging in the care setting .Feeling Devalued .A Feeling of not being ‘worth anything’ .Stress .Poor mental health .Depression and anxiety, or anger and
Unfortunately, if an individual is choosing to become homeless there are often much bigger, darker rooted problems. For example, an individual in an abusive domestic relationship may choose to leave their home without a place to go for fear of their own safety. I believe it is important that an individual has the ability to maintain autonomy in knowing that when circumstances such as these arise society has adequately prepared to help. Such help may include shelters for victims of domestic abuse and transition homes so that self-improvement may be encouraged. Unfortunately poverty and homelessness are so intertwined that those who find themselves living on the streets often enter a vicious cycle that may inhibit self-improvement and according to Mills may then affect the general welfare of
This kind of harm inflicted by racial injustice can be psychological because it can mess with the victims, making them feel like they are nothing based on how they are treated. This can damage ones self-identity. King states “Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly (204).” King fights to sop this suffering even if it’s not from his community, because he believes that we are all equal and “tied” together. Human beings can only take in so much before they break down. These individuals are the ones who suffer more while yet, end up hurting themselves more.
