DUE THURSDAY, JULY 7,2016
Families are as unique as the individuals who form them. While you
may utilize the same or similar techniques, while working with family systems
(through the steps in the GIM and related practice skills), it is also
important to recognize that each family has its own unique needs and
experiences in the world. The empowerment perspective states that an essential
aspect of working with individuals and families is to address their feelings of
powerlessness and oppression. Empowerment is a process; and one part of that
process is to gain an awareness of the oppressive structures evident in our
society. Oppression, in the form of racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia,
can impact a family’s quality of life and ability to thrive. Empowerment
practice includes discussing potential societal barriers that may have
contributed to the family’s concerns. 
For this Discussion, review
this week’s Learning Resources. Select a diverse family system, such as a
family with differences in sexual orientation, a family with differences in
race or ethnicity, or a family with members who are managing a disability.
Then, consider potential barriers they might encounter in society. Finally,
think about how a social worker might address one of these barriers on an
individual, family, organizational, group, or community level.
Post by Day 4 a
brief description of the diverse family system you selected. Then explain a
potential barrier they might encounter in society. Finally, explain one skill a
social worker might use to address this barrier on an individual, family,
organizational, group, or community level.
Support your posts and responses with specific
references to the Learning Resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for
your references.
