Description Discussion (1a) Urban communities may have multiple resources for its population, while many rural areas struggle to meet their communities’ needs. Understanding communities requires an analysis of structures and organizations and how they influence work with a client population. These structures can act as a resource to clients. The social worker must have a clear understanding of these structures and how they intersect with each other and with other systems in the community. You also need to be aware of any barriers or perceived barriers by the client that may prevent them from accessing these resources. Your community and its services depend on its location, funding sources, and political influences. In this Discussion, you practice assessment at the micro and mezzo levels when you identify the needs of the Bargas family featured in the Southside Community Services video. Assessing your community for these resources provides you with the opportunity to practice at the macro level, thereby allowing you to initiate skills at all three levels of social work practice. To prepare for this Discussion, watch the Southside Community Services video and review this week’s Learning Resources. Post the following: Identify three needs that the Bargas family has for which the social worker could offer resources. Using your own community as a point of reference, identify organizations and/or agencies that could address these needs. Explain how these organizations or agencies could help the Bargas family. Recommend an additional resource and explain how it could be of benefit to the Bargas family Discussion ( 1b) An organization is a collection of individuals gathered together to serve a purpose. Over time, an organization can stagnate and lose sight of its mission and goals. This is where the social worker’s understanding of management theories may be effective. Management theories help to increase production and improve the quality of service to clients. It is often necessary to be aware of multiple theories to apply, as each organization varies in its own culture and systems. Social workers learn to work from a systems perspective that emphasizes examining the organization from a broad perspective, coordinating programs to work as a collective whole for the good of the client. In this Discussion, you examine the various types of organizations and management theories with which social workers often interact. For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources and descriptions of organizations and management theories. Describe a management theory that you can apply to macro social work practice in your community. Identify one example and explain how the theory relates to your community.
