  • The Significance of Clothing in Gender Affirmation: Considerations for
           Social Work

      Pages: 237 - 239
      Abstract: For many, June 2022 brought a postpandemic return to public Pride Month observances and festivities. Although now marked by colorful events often celebratory in nature, the origins of Pride Month are rooted in social action. Patrons of the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar located in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, were once again harassed by law enforcement in a violent police raid on June 28, 1969. As a result, impromptu protests erupted demanding the right to openly express sexual orientation and gender identity. The Stonewall Uprising in June of 1969 marked a critical threshold for the Gay Liberation Movement. Within a year, activism gained additional momentum, bringing gay pride marches to other major U.S. cities by June 1970 (Blackmore, 2020; Poindexter, 1997). Fifty-two years later, President Biden proclaimed June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Pride Month, calling upon “the people of the United States to recognize the achievements of the LGBTQIA+ community, to celebrate the great diversity of the American people, and to wave their flags of pride high” (Biden, 2022, para. 7).

      Pages: 240 - 243
      Abstract: Social workers play a central role in the interprofessional health workforce and are equipped with the skills to provide therapeutic interventions as well as to advocate for policies that challenge systematic structures that perpetuate inequities. At the same time, despite their critical role in health and social care, there is a lack of true interprofessional practice (IPP) models in schools of social work, and often education, research, and practice are separate and siloed entities. In this column, we discuss the importance of and strategies for reenvisioning social work education and practice to require interprofessional knowledge and training, with a focus on new models in faculty development, including joint appointments between academic and clinical settings.

           Workers from Spain

      Pages: 244 - 252
      Abstract: AbstractAs a result of secondary exposure to traumatic material, social workers may experience vicarious trauma. However, the analysis of this variable among social workers is scarce. The Vicarious Trauma Scale (VTS) is a brief instrument designed to measure the stress consequence of shared trauma. This study aims to examine the psychometrics of the VTS in a sample of 448 social workers from Spain. The results from the exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses (EFA and CFA) indicated that the VTS has satisfactory psychometric properties. Different indices of internal consistency supported the reliability of the VTS. Both EFA and CFA revealed the existence of two factors, corresponding to the cognitive and affective consequences of secondary exposure to trauma. Finally, the correlations of the VTS with other relevant and well-known job variables (workload, work–family conflict, detachment, supervisor support, burnout, and engagement) followed the expected pattern, and the VTS differentiated the social workers by their trauma caseload. Therefore, the VTS can be considered an adequate screening method of social workers’ vicarious trauma, and its application recommended to examine the possible risk and protective factors and consequences.

  • Assessing Change in Participation in Clinical Evaluations of Deployed
           Veterans with Medically Unexplained Symptoms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 253 - 261
      Abstract: AbstractMany deployed veterans experience issues reintegrating into civilian life. Addressing this in a clinical setting can prove challenging; however, assessing participation, defined as involvement in a life situation by the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, may be helpful. The Community Reintegration of Injured Service Members–Computer Adaptive Test (CRIS-CAT) is a measure of participation developed and validated in veteran populations. The War Related and Illness and Injury Study Center, which provides comprehensive evaluations to veterans with medically unexplained deployment-related concerns, used the CRIS-CAT as part of their social work evaluations during these visits and follow-up telephone calls. This retrospective review of clinical data examines the link between participation as assessed by the CRIS-CAT and factors that are mutable (such as relationships with others) and immutable (personal characteristics) as assessed in the social work evaluation over 12 months. The findings indicate that these veteran patients did not experience change in their participation as measured by the CRIS-CAT. Multivariable regression models demonstrated relationships only between change in CRIS-CAT scales and baseline scores and race. Article concludes by discussing lessons learned from this evaluation of the utility of the CRIS-CAT in clinical care and in longitudinal evaluation.

  • “We Are Not Taking a Backseat”: Health Social Workers’ Perspectives
           on COVID-19 Response and Recovery

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 262 - 273
      Abstract: AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic has wrought widespread devastation across the United States, exacerbating existing health inequities rooted in the social determinants of health. Social work is the key workforce tasked with providing social care in healthcare settings. In September 2019, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine released a landmark Consensus Study Report, Integrating Social Care into the Delivery of Health Care: Moving Upstream to Improve the Nation’s Health. The report describes a framework for addressing key care needs that articulates five “As for action” (5As)—awareness, alignment, assistance, adjustment, and advocacy—that are critical to social care. Drawing from a series of focus groups conducted with 55 social workers employed in a large urban pediatric quaternary hospital, this study qualitatively examines the utility of this framework in characterizing social care activities during the pandemic response and recovery efforts. Findings suggest that the 5As framework is both applicable to pandemic social work practice and an accurate encapsulation of the core elements of hospital social work practice, even if social workers themselves may not necessarily be aware of that conceptualization. Future implications for social work practice in arenas of awareness, adjustment, assistance, alignment, and advocacy are also discussed.

  • Incarcerated People Living with HIV: A Qualitative Exploration of Stigma

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 274 - 283
      Abstract: AbstractThousands of people living with HIV are incarcerated in the United States. Research about this vulnerable community has focused on access and adherence to medical care, including the impact of stigma on these treatment outcomes. This study presents qualitative data collected from 18 incarcerated and formerly incarcerated men and women living with HIV to expand knowledge about how HIV stigma shapes the lived experience of incarceration. The HIV Stigma Framework, including theory about enacted, anticipated, and internalized stigma, was used to analyze participants’ narratives. Findings demonstrate an ongoing struggle with all three of these stigma mechanisms. Most participants deliberately concealed their HIV status and, therefore, experienced little enacted stigma. However, their narratives do describe anticipated stigma and, to a lesser extent, internalized stigma. There were gender differences in HIV disclosure and symbolic stigma and intersectionality are used to understand this variation. These findings illustrate the persistence of HIV stigma in correctional institutions and underscore the importance of fighting HIV stigma and homophobia within social work practice.

  • Burden Predictors for Informal Caregivers of Older Adults in Spain: The
           Role of Cohabitation, Coping Strategies, Social Support, and Evaluation of
           Preexisting Relationships

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 284 - 291
      Abstract: Given the role that informal caregivers play in caring for older adults and the importance of understanding the variables that may predict the burden that they experience due to caregiving, the aim of this article is to examine the relationship between different variables and the caregiver’s subjective burden.
      Authors examined the relationship between caregivers’ sociodemographic characteristics (age and gender), the context in which the care is provided (cohabiting or not), duty as a reason for taking on the role of caregiver, the evaluation of the preexisting relationship between caregiver and care recipient, as well as coping strategies and social support as predictor variables of subjective burden. For this purpose, 161 caregivers of older Spanish adults completed a questionnaire containing information on the corresponding variables. The results indicate that people cohabiting with care recipients experience a greater subjective burden than those who live apart. The caregiver’s evaluation of their preexisting relationship with the care recipient and perceived family support negatively predicts the subjective burden, while maladaptive coping strategies positively predict it. These results underline the importance of considering these variables in caregiver support programs.

  • Challenges of End-Stage Renal Disease Patients in Ethiopia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 292 - 300
      Abstract: AbstractAffecting all aspects of patients’ lives, end-stage renal disease (ESRD) presents significant challenges. Individuals with ESRD face biological, psychological, economic, and social issues. ESRD patients in Ethiopia bear multifaceted burdens of multiple medical conditions, including comorbid hypertension, diabetes, cardiac problems, anemia, gastrointestinal issues, and bone and mineral disorders. The aim of this study was to address the gap in research on patients in Ethiopia with ESRD and examine biopsychosocial and economic challenges. A qualitative hermeneutic phenomenology design was employed. In-depth interviews were held with 10 women and 10 men. Major themes include the physical corollary of ESRD (e.g., fatigue), and psychological (e.g., fear of loss of capacity and/or occupation) and socioeconomic challenges (e.g., difficulty obtaining social and economic support). Along with complications of ESRD and side effects of dialysis, patients face trauma and social and economic repercussions. Social workers are well positioned to help manage associated biopsychosocial and economic challenges. The findings indicate the need for policies that promote multidisciplinary teams in working with patients who are diagnosed with ESRD.

      Pages: 301 - 304
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic caused devastating effects on the lives of people worldwide (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], n.d.-a). Communities of color were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, and existing racial disparities were exacerbated (CDC, n.d.-a). Black and Latinx persons were disproportionately impacted by COVID-19-related hospitalizations and deaths (CDC, n.d.-a; U.S. Census Bureau, n.d.). Similar to the impacts related to COVID-19, people with substance use disorders (SUDs) have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 as well (National Institute for Drug Abuse, n.d.). Further, Black and Latinx persons with mental health problems and SUDs are faced with other challenges (e.g., homelessness, incarceration, facing challenges with physical distancing, washing hands, and self-quarantining) that likely put them at increased risk for COVID-19 (Stern et al., 2021).
