Chapter two touches upon the topic of resilience and oppression notions and their influence on people’s psychology. Chapter three focuses on discussing the preliminary phase of building contact with the client. Both chapters contain many theoretical approaches discussing their implementation in practice (Shulman, 2016). Social workers need to be aware of factors helping to define the nature and reasons for oppression. Chapter three is critical due to the detailed description of strategies for working with at the beginning. Social workers have no opportunity to help people without building honest relationships. The resource provides a more detailed description of the theoretical aspects of resilience and oppression compared to class (Shulman, 2016). The preliminary stage of the work was also discussed in class. However, the resource analyses the obstacles to normal communication, which must be considered beforehand.
As far as my internship practice is related to providing support for children and offering solutions to everyday issues, the source is helpful. For example, by revealing the oppression forces, I can potentially eliminate the cause helping children to be more confident in themselves. I have tried to analyze the level of oppression within different families using the indicators mentioned in Chapter two (Shulman, 2016). The risk rate for oppression was especially high in African American and Hispanic immigrants children. I plan to enhance my working approach to building communication in the future. Therefore, I will apply the knowledge from the Chapter tree in practice. From my perspective, a well-structured and planned strategy to overcome communication difficulties in the preliminary phase is crucial. I will base the development of the strategy on the examples and theories provided by the author.
