  • The Responsibility of Self-Care in Social Work

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Scheyett A.
      Pages: 281 - 283
      Abstract: Recently my colleague and former editor-in-chief of Social Work, Tricia B. Bent-Goodley (2018), wrote an editorial on the importance of intentional self-care in social work practice. Since that time, self-care has become even more essential for us. We have all been battered by a pandemic, by images and experiences of police violence against Black individuals and communities, by news of the murder of Asian women in Atlanta, by job loss and economic hardship. These experiences are different for each of us, because of our varied positionalities and privilege, and we must acknowledge the profound experiences of racial trauma among social workers who identify as Black, Indigenous, or people of color (Lipscomb & Ashley, 2020). But since the beginning of 2020, to various extents all of us have been pummeled by pain and fear and loss and rage.

  • “Could We Just Breathe for 30 Seconds'”: Social Worker Experiences
           of Holistic Engagement Practice Training

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pyles L; Cosgrove D, Gardner E, et al.
      Pages: 285 - 296
      Abstract: AbstractGiven the still emerging evidence base about the effectiveness of practices, such as mindfulness, somatics, and integrative body-mind-spirit social work, there is a need to know more about the impacts that training in such areas can have on social workers and their professional work. This mixed-methods article reports on a pilot study that explored practitioners’ perceptions regarding the impact of learning holistic engagement practice (HEP) skills on their service delivery and well-being. The research inquires into the perceptions of social workers who received the training, particularly in relation to their quality of presence and the therapeutic relationship; HEP as a form of self-care and a facilitator of compassion satisfaction; the impact it has on social work practice and settings; and the facilitators and barriers to using holistic engagement. Implications from the findings focus on the need for additional research, training, organizational change, and communities of practice to facilitate changes that could promote more effective social work practice, greater levels of empathy, and compassion satisfaction.

           Accessing Social Work Services

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Wahler E; Provence M, Johnson S, et al.
      Pages: 297 - 305
      Abstract: AbstractPublic libraries in the United States have begun to partner with social work to address the psychosocial needs observed in patrons that are beyond the training and education of most library staff. This is a new area of inquiry with limited research available. Of the few published studies, the majority focus on staff perceptions of patrons’ needs and surveys of patrons experiencing homelessness about their use of public libraries. The present study is the first to examine and compare staff perception of patrons’ needs, patrons’ self-expressed needs, and the actual use of social work services by patrons within one library system. Comparisons are explored between actual service usage alongside the perception of patrons’ needs as originally reported by both staff and patron groups. Implications for library-based social work practice are discussed.

  • Community Organization and Empowerment of Women: The Mujeres Pescadoras
           del Manglar Cooperative in Oaxaca, Mexico

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sartini I; Sánchez F.
      Pages: 307 - 316
      Abstract: AbstractGender equity is still a challenge for the world, especially in those regions where sociocultural practices permeated by machismo, that is, male chauvinism, intersect with poverty and institutionalized racial discrimination. The creation of safe and feminized spaces where women can express themselves freely is crucial in the process of cultivating their awareness of their own positions, and the first step toward individual and collective empowerment. In this article the authors point out the direct and positive relationship between feminine cooperativism and women’s empowerment, taking as a case study the Mujeres Pescadoras del Manglar cooperative in Oaxaca, Mexico, a group of women who, thanks to a social work program implemented by La Ventana civic association, has been able to gain empowerment and recognition at a personal and political level. Likewise, Mujeres Pescadoras del Manglar is an example of the national phenomenon of bolstering female employment in the fishing sector, which is on the rise thanks to the growing number of women’s cooperatives, through which they can access the labor market, feminize new spaces, and achieve full empowerment for themselves, their families, and the society in which they live. The fieldwork was carried out from November 2018 to February 2019 in the community of El Zapotalito, Oaxaca. The methodology used consists of semistructured interviews, life stories, field diaries, and participant observation. This article showcases a positive example of social work empowering low-income women on the Chica coast of Oaxaca.

           Entrepreneurship

      Authors: Nouman H; Cnaan R.
      Pages: 317 - 328
      Abstract: AbstractSocial entrepreneurship in social work is presented in the literature as an important practice considering its ability to provide long-term, innovative, and creative interventions for social problems. However, many doubt the ability of social workers to act as social entrepreneurs. This study examined action strategies adopted by social workers who established innovative services to address social problems. Data were collected from qualitative in-depth interviews conducted with 23 successful social work entrepreneurs. Research findings revealed seven action strategies that have the potential to promote successful social entrepreneurship in social work: (1) coalition building, (2) legislative advocacy, (3) media use, (4) legislative tools, (5) active use of social network: “street smarts,” (6) development of a resource infrastructure, and (7) cultural norms and traditions. The study provides insight into the various ways to succeed in social work entrepreneurship; to identify opportunities in education and practice for entrepreneurship in social work; and to serve as an effective, innovative guide to address the complex social problems facing social workers.

           First-Generation Black African Immigrants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Saasa S; Miller S.
      Pages: 329 - 338
      Abstract: AbstractFew studies examine factors associated with mental health distress among immigrants from African countries. Using cross-sectional data from first-generation Black African immigrants across the United States (N = 180), this study examined biopsychosocial factors that influence depression and anxiety symptoms among African immigrants in the United States. Ordinary least squares regression was conducted to analyze the data. Approximately 22 percent of the sample reported depression and anxiety symptoms in the moderate to severe range. Results indicated that being male, substance use, discrimination, and loneliness were significantly associated with worse depression and anxiety symptoms. In addition, worries about safety and financial strain were associated with increased mental health distress. Loneliness also moderated the association between discrimination and depression and anxiety symptoms. Findings imply that relational interventions in direct practice settings may play a critical role in helping African immigrants ameliorate depression and anxiety symptoms. This study supports the use of the biopsychosocial approach in assessment and intervention of mental health symptoms as well as a systems approach when understanding the experiences of African immigrants.

  • Helping People with Disabilities in the Workplace: Mezzo-Level
           Interventions Targeting Corporate Culture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kwan C.
      Pages: 339 - 347
      Abstract: AbstractThis article explores the relevance of mezzo-level interventions to help people with disabilities improve their employability. It begins with an overview of the micro-mezzo-macro spectrum in the context of vocational rehabilitation services and shows that corporate culture plays a critical role in determining the employment outcomes of people with disabilities. This case study, a collaborative project of two business enterprises in Hong Kong, illustrates the benefits brought by a mezzo-level intervention for people with disabilities. Feedback collected from eight participating staff members from the two companies revealed that such collaboration can facilitate disability-friendly work environments. By promoting workplace inclusion through three main factors—attitudes, skills, and knowledge—social workers helped support the participating staff members who worked with people with disabilities. The staff participants gained a more accurate understanding of the characteristics of people with disabilities, and better workplace accommodations were provided for employees with special needs. The experiences reported by the participants in this project suggest that social workers’ scope of practice should be expanded to mezzo-level interventions to target corporate culture.

           Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Anleu-Hernández C; García-Moreno C, Zafra-Aparici E, et al.
      Pages: 348 - 357
      Abstract: This article aims to break with two social stereotypes often held about Latinas in Spain.
      Authors analyze Latinas’ main strengths from a resilient and intersectional approach, to consider them holistically within social work interventions. Rather than focusing on Latinas' difficulties, authors point to their multiple strengths and the ability to move forward. The study took place in the province of Tarragona, Catalonia (Spain). A qualitative approach was used. Participants included Latinas living in Tarragona and social workers from the Tarragona social services. The techniques used were nine life stories and 59 semi-open questionnaires with Latinas, and 14 interviews with social workers. The authors identified a fighting attitude and an entrepreneurial and creative spirit as both individual and collective strengths, especially within Latinas' social networks. Latinas did not recognize themselves as victims, nor did they claim to assume that identity. The social workers’ interventions are implemented in a weak welfare system based on a model characterized by a paternalistic and victim-based viewpoint. Adopting approaches such as intersectionality and resilience would allow for the creation of fairer policies, programs, and projects targeted for Latinas, not just in Spain, but in other countries, too.

      Authors: Arndt R; Kreif T, Stotzer R.
      Pages: 359 - 368
      Abstract: AbstractFew research studies have examined social work practitioners and their licensure practices and pathways, or how policies affect licensure choices. Pathways to licensure, particularly the process of movement from graduation to licensure, along with the type of license, and the length of time a license is held were analyzed using administrative data from a state agency responsible for professional licensure administration and two schools of social work in the same state. The analysis prioritized the review of individuals who have held or do hold multiple licenses. Results indicated (a) that the majority of people who pursue licensure do so shortly after graduation; (b) that once licensed, graduates maintain their licenses for long periods of time; (c) that the majority of graduates do not pursue licensure; and (d) that policy contexts and opportunities for licensure at different levels affect licensure decision making. The analysis resulted in detailed information regarding the decisions graduates are making to pursue their licenses, the impact of policy on licensure pathways, the intersection of jurisdictional policy and license mobility, and the process of how social workers move through various levels of licensure.

  • Safety Issues for Social Workers Engaging in Anti-Trafficking Work

      Authors: Xin Y; Meshelemiah J.
      Pages: 369 - 371
      Abstract: It is critical for state governments and social service agencies to promote, monitor, and protect the safety of social workers in all workplaces—especially those in anti-trafficking practice. According to NASW (2013, p. 5), a considerable number of social workers have been targeted in verbal and physical assaults. Some have even been injured, and others have lost their lives “in the line of duty.” Social workers have been murdered in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, and Malaysia (ABS-CBN News, 2009; Dickerson, 1998; Donoghue, Dover, & Burbank, 2015; Epoch Newsroom, 2018; Smith, 2019; Turner, 2019). Specifically, a social welfare officer named Finardo Cabilao was found dead in his home in 2009. He fought against the exploitation and trafficking of Filipino women in Malaysia and was murdered because of his anti-trafficking work (ABS-CBN News, 2009). As a social worker, Cabilao’s death is unusual in anti-trafficking work, but safety concerns exist outside of fatalities due to the extreme victimization of trafficked people. Safety issues for social workers that will be discussed in this commentary include social media exposure, lack of security in the workplace, stalking, raids and outreach, easy name recognition, and threats from traffickers.

  • Social Work and Artificial Intelligence: Into the Matrix

      Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is not a single tool, rather it is a suite of algorithmic computing capacities that can perform humanlike functions across settings. AI refers to dynamic machine intelligence, including facial recognition (computer vision), perception (computer vision and speech recognition), whole language processing (chatbots and data mining), and social intelligence (emotive computing and sentiment analysis), to name a few. The actual lines of code powering AI tools are commands that tell machines what to do, which can be neutral strings of directives. However, those who program the code, the data that powers outcomes, and the social systems in which these tools are deployed all inevitably reflect existing structural inequalities. AI now powers decision making from as benign as matching drivers to those who require transportation, to ethically fraught risk management processes, including the scoring of criminal offenders for sentencing and initial triage process in child welfare (Eubanks, 2018).

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Correction: Upon initial publication the article “Risk-Informed Intervention: Using Intimate Partner Violence Risk Assessment within an Evidence-Based Practice Framework” by Jill Theresa Messing (April 2019, Vol. 64, No. 2, pp. 103–111, doi: 10.1093/sw/swz009) contained a duplicate decision tree in Figure 3. The duplicate decision tree has now been removed. We regret the oversight.
