  • Standing against Anti-Asian Racism in America

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 157 - 159
      Abstract: Between the middle of March 2020 and the end of February 2021, approximately 4,000 hate incidents and crimes against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) were reported to Stop AAPI Hate (Jeung et al., 2021). Stop AAPI Hate is a coalition launched by the AAPI Equity Alliance, Chinese for Affirmative Action, and the Asian American Studies Department of San Francisco State University. It was formed to document and respond to reported hate incidents and crimes against AAPI. Asian Americans and Asians have encountered long-standing racism, for instance, the Yellow Peril stereotypes, since the late 19th century. These stereotypes portray people of Asian (especially East Asian) ethnicity as aliens, lacking in individuality, and having distorted sexuality (Chen et al., 2020; Kawai, 2005). When the COVID-19 pandemic impacted populations worldwide, there was a focus on China and origin theories for the disease that led to a growth in media and political messages that perpetuated Yellow Peril stereotypes. As a consequence, we are observing heightened discrimination, hate, and violence against members of the Asian American community (Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, 2021).

  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development–Veterans Affairs
           Supportive Housing Program: Bring All Homeless Veterans Home

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 161 - 164
      Abstract: On a single night in January 2020, 37,252 veterans were experiencing homelessness in the United States—36,115 fewer veterans than in 2009, when these data were first collected (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs [VA], 2021). This result is no accident. In 2010, the Obama White House and the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness released the Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness report, in which the President wrote, “Veterans should never find themselves on the streets, living without care and without hope” (p. 2). This report provided a plan to prevent and end homelessness among veterans in five years. We ought to applaud the progress made, and as social workers we also ought to examine what has stood in the way of total success. Moreover, we ought to work toward remedy and help see this goal realized. In this column, I describe the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development–Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. I then present several challenges impeding its progress—low lease-up and insufficient case management services. Finally, in a call to action of social workers, I echo proposals for change long made by veteran-serving community-based organizations across the nation.

  • Medication Barriers and Adherence: Experiences of Pediatric Transplant
           Recipients

      Pages: 165 - 174
      Abstract: AbstractThis study examined associations between scores on the Adolescent Medication Barriers Scale (AMBS) and the Parent Medication Barriers Scale (PMBS), patient and family factors, and medication adherence outcomes. Patients and caregivers from a pediatric solid organ transplantation (SOT) program were recruited for participation. Pediatric SOT recipients ages 10 to 21 years were eligible for participation. Analyses included reliability analyses and regression modeling with posttransplant medication adherence measured by Medication Level Variability Index scores. Seventy-three patients and caregivers completed an AMBS or PMBS questionnaire. Patient–caregiver inter-rater reliability was poor to fair. Greater medication barriers were reported among younger and female patients and families with more children. AMBS scores predicted greater nonadherence, while the PMBS was not predictive of adherence. Results point to the difficulty of assessing barriers to medication adherence and the lack of agreement between adolescent patients and caregivers. AMBS scores were more closely aligned with medication nonadherence, whereas PMBS scores may have been more influenced by family social factors. Adolescent reports of medication barriers may offer multidisciplinary transplant teams greater clinical utility when addressing these challenges with patients. Transplant social workers and psychologists should engage adolescents and caregivers in efforts to address medication nonadherence.

  • Substance Use in Relation to Mental Illness: A Study of Mexican-Origin
           Latinos with Schizophrenia and Their Family Members

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 175 - 183
      Abstract: AbstractLittle is known about family context and substance use behaviors among Latinos with schizophrenia. Learning about patient and family caregiver perceptions of use is critical to our understanding of how best to support these vulnerable patients and family caregivers. This study explored perceptions of substance use in relation to mental illness among Latinos primarily of Mexican origin with schizophrenia and their family caregivers. Semistructured interviews were conducted with 34 participants (20 family caregivers; 14 patients) with direct and indirect substance use experience, in their preferred language. Data were analyzed using thematic analysis, which consisted of comparing codes across and within patient and family caregiver transcripts. Findings revealed that substance use affected well-being, particularly patient recovery and caregiver burden. Strategies to address well-being included limiting substance use, being vigilant about patient use, and communicating the negative impact of use. The environmental impact and stigma of substance use were major contextual challenges. Patients addressed these by limiting their socialization. Family social context was important to how substance use was perceived and managed by patients and caregivers. As such, treatment models should consider a holistic perspective that incorporates family context when addressing substance use among Latinos with schizophrenia.

  • Education and Consultation Needs of Social Workers in Practice with Rural
           Older Adults

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 185 - 194
      Abstract: AbstractThe aging population and shortage of primary care physicians lead to increasing gaps in access to rural geriatric healthcare. Of concern is the lack of access to geriatric expertise, leading to adverse effects on rural older adults’ health outcomes and quality of life. The Geriatric Rural Extension of Expertise through Telegeriatric Services (also known as GREETS) project surveyed rural physical and behavioral healthcare practitioners to identify gaps in geriatric competencies in the rural workforce. Using the Qualtrics platform, a survey was distributed to professional membership lists throughout the State of Michigan. A total of 106 responses were completed, of which 50 were from respondents who identified their profession as a social worker. As would be expected based on social workers’ scope of practice and the settings in which they provide services, social worker respondents noted a higher need than the other practitioner respondents for education related to (a) managing chronic pain, (b) managing care of patients with multiple chronic conditions, (c) having serious illness conversations, (d) diagnosing dementia, and (e) discussing advance care planning. Having identified these needs provides a basis for identifying and implementing training and resources for social work and other disciplines involved in geriatric care and services.

  • Social Workers’ Self-Care Practices: Buffering the Influence of
           Work–Family Interferences on Burnout and Engagement

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 195 - 204
      Abstract: AbstractAs a reaction to specific job stressors, social workers can experience job burnout. The job demands-resources theory posits that personal characteristics would mediate the influence of job stressors on either burnout or engagement. Within this framework, this cross-sectional research aimed to analyze the relationships between work–family interferences (as predictors), self-care practices (as mediators), and burnout and engagement (as outcomes). The sample included 437 graduate social workers from Spain. Structural equation modeling showed that family–work and work–family conflicts negatively predicted self-care practices and positively predicted burnout. Professional and personal self-care practices positively predicted engagement, negatively predicted burnout, and attenuated the impact of work–family interferences on burnout and engagement. To the authors’ knowledge, the present article is the first to test the job demands-resources theory with these variables on social workers. The findings support interventions for social work students and professionals enhancing self-care practices to promote engagement and to reduce burnout, and highlight the need to decrease job stressors and enhance job resources for social workers.

  • Social Work Leadership Competencies for Practice amid Crisis: A Scoping
           Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 205 - 214
      Abstract: AbstractLeadership skills are a critical component of effective social work practice in interdisciplinary healthcare and mental healthcare settings. Over the last two decades there has been increased attention to the importance of social work leadership skills for clinical practice. Moreover, social workers display essential leadership skills when supporting individuals and communities amid large-scale crises such as pandemics, natural disasters, wars, and other sociopolitical crises. Currently, there is an absence of literature on social work leadership skills for effective practice in healthcare and mental healthcare settings during times of crisis. To bridge this knowledge gap, this scoping review aimed to synthesize and map the current literature on social work leadership competencies in healthcare and mental healthcare amid crises. Arksey and O’Malley’s five-stage framework for scoping reviews guided this project. Six academic databases were searched, and a total of nine articles met inclusion criteria. A thematic analysis was conducted to identify recurrent themes among these articles. Results highlight that leadership was defined as both a role and a skill set, and identified collaboration, connection, and shared learning as key leadership competencies for social workers. Implications for social work practice, education, and research are discussed.

  • The Associations between Adverse Childhood Experiences and Social Services
           Use among Head Start–Eligible Low-Income Families

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 215 - 224
      Abstract:  This study examined the effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on parental social services use among Head Start–eligible low-income families. Based on the Head Start Impact Study data (N = 3,562), three questions were addressed: (1) Does the number of ACEs impact parental social services use' (2) Do family characteristics have any association with parental social services use' and (3) Does parental social services use differ between Head Start and non–Head Start parents' Regression indicated that parents with more ACEs tended to use more social services. Compared with parents with one ACE, parents with two ACEs and parents with three or more ACEs used more social services with income assistance, food and nutrition assistance, and housing and utility assistance programs. Parents with three or more ACEs tended to use more social services related to alcohol and drug use, mental health, and foster care payments than parents with one ACE. Barriers to social services use were identified and include racial disparities, native language, immigration status, and geographical location. Head Start was not found to have a significant impact on whether parents used more social services. Recommendations include increasing effective collaboration between social workers and services, assessing barriers to receiving services, and implementing ACE screenings.

  • Nothing Beats Experience: Case Study of How Withstanding the Effects of a
           Prior Disaster Impacted Provider Preparedness and Response during the
           Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 225 - 228
      Abstract: By the end of 2021, COVID-19 had infected over 50 million people in the United States, leading to more than 800,000 deaths, simultaneously altering how healthcare is delivered and the nature of the job for those who provide direct patient care. Many clinical social workers have experienced burnout or left the profession because of the stress and emotional overload (Holmes et al., 2021). Rates of turnover among social workers range from 30 percent to 65 percent (Chang, 2017); although that figure during the pandemic is unknown, it is likely larger because of the duration and intensity of the ongoing disaster. Turnover in the healthcare field is costly to agencies (Singh, 2021) and can have a rippling effect by disrupting care for clients and increasing provider caseloads.
