I have to act in the person’s best interest but instead of encouraging them to avoid risks I have to support them and enable them to taking part in activities. I have to act in the individuals best interest, keep them safe, carry out risk assessments, promote informed choices but also respect their decision and right to live their life as they choose. If the risk seems great to me I would document it and discuss the matter with my manager. Another area where duty of care dilemmas may arise are confidentiality issues. When a confidential information is shared with me and it concerns safeguarding and there is a possibility of harm or someone’s wellbeing is threathened I might have to make a decision and disclose this information.
When considering this issue, sociologists should also consider that participants should also be offered the right to refuse. This is an important ethical issue for sociologists to consider throughout their studies as refusal to participate in parts of the study could also alter the data. Another ethical problem sociologists may face is vulnerable groups. Special care should be taken when the participants are particularly vulnerable due to their age, disabilities, physical health or mental health. For example, children being studied in
Humans naturally form social groups and identities. These groups may have common conscious or unconscious values or morals. With this individuals are exposed and may become vulnerable to influencing factors encouraging them to conform or adopt the group values and beliefs. In the helping profession, in order for the counsellor to support the client effectively the counsellor must show and feel acceptance regardless of the issue; even if it contradicts or disagrees with their morals and values. On occasion there are self-awareness unexplored problem areas that the counsellor encounters with a client.
Pit Bulls were first bred to bait bulls and bears as a sport back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but soon became more commonly used as house pets due to their friendliness towards people (Brom, 1987-09, p.14). This indeed should open up society’s eyes to Pit Bulls not being an aggressive breed simply because they became more commonly used as pets, and they once represented The United States of America by serving in wars. Many of us base our opinions on what we hear in the media; we hear that Pit Bulls are overly aggressive, prone to biting, and in general should be banned as a breed. The court cases are squarely to blame for this breeds misconception of being a terror. The highest court in Maryland has held that all pit bull and cross-bred pit bull dogs are "inherently dangerous" as a matter of law and imposed strict liability on all persons who own, harbor, or control such dogs if they know or
Social Bond Theory (formerly known as Social Control Theory) is the belief that the self control of an individual can be built by manipulating the processes of socialization and social learning. It is also thought to help decrease the urge to engage in antisocial behavior. The theory proposes that people are influenced not to participate in criminal activities based upon their relationships with others, beliefs, commitments, values and social norms. The four basic elements of social bond theory are attachment, commitment, involvement in conventional versus deviant or criminal activities, and lastly the common value system within an individual’s society or subgroup. Attachment is described as the level of values and or norms that an individual holds in society.
Luckily, you and I are hunters.” This quote shows that Rainsford thinks that violence is perfectly fine when hunting animals and Zaroff would agree with the quote as well. Why do you think Rainsford chooses to confront Zaroff at the end, instead of ambush him? 7a: I think he does this to rub it in to Zaroff because Zaroff was so sure that he would win the game because he wins every game he faces. Also Rainsford wanted to show how terrible it is for humans to be killed and do it himself to show Zaroff that evil always comes back to haunt you. 8.How do time and place affect the actions of the
The new environment is considered to be the “in-group”, which makes past environments the “out-group”. This tactic creates and maintains loyalty to the new environment. Group pressure is supported by the reasoning dissonance theory. We do not want to be dissimilar with our own thinking and behaving/behaviors. Difference is strongly undesirable more so within a group.
The article goes on to list several other problems with these laws. They punish innocent owners and dogs, they actually encourage ownership of these breeds by outlaws and those who intend to use the dogs for violence, and they give the public a false sense of security, which could endanger a person. The ASPCA cites the CDC on some other factors that could lead to dog bites rather than just what breed a dog is. This source is scholarly and reliable. The ASPCA is a well-known and trusted organization, the claims made in this article are backed up with facts and statistics, and many of these come from another trusted organization.
Some believe animals are an unintelligent species and are just savage creature trying to live in this world. In the essay written by Bass, he describes how the hunters and the animals imagine their prey’s movements. This is giving animals the intelligence to think and react to another animal’s movements. This means Bass believes animals are creatures with the ability to think. In the essay “Am I Blue?” Walker talks about how the horse is “like a crazed person.” This happened because the two horses on a farm were separated after bonding.
Every society has its own distinctive norms or shared values regarding acceptable and unacceptable behaviour that help govern appropriate behaviour. Social control through a process of socialization to the dominant standards of culture can account for how society brings about the acceptance of basic social norms and for preventing deviant behaviour through informal and formal sanctions. ”, (Schaefer & Haaland, 2009, p. 159) As we are socialized to society’s norms and values of what is acceptable behaviour we internalize such norms as valid and desirable; “we are socialized both to want to belong and to fear being viewed as different or deviant.” (Schaefer & Haaland, 2009, p. 164) In Canada as well as around the world, people are highly concerned about the opinions of others, social acceptance and the fear of rejection is an enormous motivation to conform to acceptable behaviours for most of us. In the case of having a law that would identify an individual who has previously been convicted of impaired driving through a Special License Plate that would be visible to the community, would play on our fears of being rejected and being publicly viewed as deviant. It would be considered a form of informal social control that has both advantages and disadvantages to its effectiveness.
