Lack of communication is another problem that exists in the family. The therapist will ask the family to share their feelings openly. The intervention will also focus on identifying the needs and wants of the family as well as strengthening the relationship among all family members, particularly the relationship between Conrad and his mother. According to Beardslee and Knitzer (2004), interventions on increasing the parents’ knowledge about their child’s problems and promoting positive relationships among family members have proven to be successful. Cognitive behavioral therapy will also be used to increase effective strategies for behavioral management (Wilmhurst, 2004).

Marie is directing patient centered care, but culturally, Carla prefers her family around her to support her and her help make decisions while Carla is recovering. One of the visitors in Carla’s room may be a partera who is helped Carla with the delivery and is helping with recovery. Carla may even have a trusted family member that will make decisions for her (Potter, Perry, Stockert & Hall, 2013). Delivering care to a patient in a way that is respectful to the patient and their family is crucial for several reasons. Culturally congruent care means taking in to account the beliefs and traditions of the patient and working them into the care plan.
In an attempt to portray the complexities of merging old traditions with modern lifestyles, Amy Tan and Chinua Achebe formed novels that depict how parent-child relationships are influenced by different cultures. Though they are presented under different circumstances, The Joy Luck Club and Things Fall Apart portray parent child relationships, the effect of outside influences, cultural differences, and generational gaps. Naturally parents strive to provide what is best for their children which includes, watching over them, giving them proper guidance, and going great lengths to ensure that their future will be better than their own. This motive is shown in The Joy Luck Club in the opening parable, “Feathers from a Thousand Li Away.” A woman who is emigrating to America from Shanghai, dreams that she will raise a daughter who will not only “exceed all hopes,” but unlike her mother she will be “judged according to her own worth not by that of a husband” (TAN) It is also shown in Things Fall Apart when Okonkwo is speaking to his son Nwoye, warning him that, “No matter how prosperous a man was, if he was unable to rule his women and his children (and especially his women) he was not really a man” (ACHEBE, 45) Okonkwo was referring to his father who he resents for not being the man that he desperately needed as a child. As a result of being raised by that type of parenting, Okonkwo’s “whole life was dominated by fear, the fear of failure and weakness.” He is now doing everything in his power to make sure that his son, Nwoye, will not follow after his grandfather’s habits hoping that his son will learn good work ethic and respect for his culture.
This has been introduced by the government to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities and their families and carers. This includes the rights to employment, to buy a house, to be treated as people with needs and wants that they should be encouraged to tell others about. Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (2005). The Mental Capacity Act was introduced as a means of ensuring that everyone should be treated as able to make their own decisions until it is shown that they cannot. A lack of capacity could be because of a severe learning disability, dementia, mental health problems, a brain injury or a stroke.
Narrative Therapy Approach to Family Counseling Due to the fact that all humans are different by the grace of God, each person requires a different type of treatment to meet their counseling needs. Family counseling provides many different approaches when it comes to counseling patients. The therapeutic approach is one of the most popular forms of narrative therapy. Michael White and David Espton developed a form of family therapy called the narrative therapy approach in the early 1900’s. They accomplished this by taking the best part of models from therapist they observed and implementing them into an experimental model that they eventually perfected into what is known today as the narrative therapy approach.

Running Head: FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAMS IN LOW-INCOME COMMUNITIES Family Support programs in Low-income communities To decrease Child Abuse and neglect Denise A. Berry Argosy University Abstract This essay explores my strong argument on how child abuse has been strongly connected with poverty. It also explores how there needs to be more support programs in the low-income communities and how more programming for low-income families will help them to get help and be able to connect with their children on a positive level without abuse. In my essay you will find other authors and studies their own point of views about child abuse and poverty. This paper examines Whipples, Di Leornardi, and Ports own research in child abuse and poverty and the effects that it has on a child
Dedicated social workers who remain ethical will use their position and privilege to work towards a greater equality, following the tradition of striving for solutions. The mission of a social worker is to see the whole picture, the one that rankings do not show, and to advocate those in need. [Lorraine Gutierrez, PhD, LMSW] The top social justice issues facing social workers today include celebrating diversity, child welfare, healthcare reform, poverty, economic injustice, and affordable housing. Child welfare continues to fail abused, neglected, and unwanted children living in recent society. Three million child maltreatment reports were on record in 2004 [2005 Census].
The articles referenced within this paper were chosen because of their relevancy, reliability, and the methodology used to collect its data. The people examined in the articles included married and unmarried couples from diverse backgrounds, race, and locality. The overall impact of the research was a societal decline in positive illustrations of happy and healthy marriages and family. Because divorce and single parenting is often a stressful and life-altering experience, this paper offered ways to build lasting and positive relationships to maintain the marital union. Strong family relationships and marriage is the “bedrock of society” and bolsters human interactions.
