  • The Time Is Right for Social Work

      Authors: Scheyett A.
      Pages: 101 - 103
      Abstract: March is Social Work Month, and the theme for 2022 has been “The Time is Right for Social Work” (https://www.socialworkers.org/News/Social-Work-Month) This is a powerful statement, and one deserving of real thoughtfulness. Our time is one of challenge and conflict, with a syndemic of concatenated crises—COVID-19, racism, chronic health disparities, structurally unjust systems, a failing economy where people are differentially vulnerable and have differential access to resources and goods, with a government that is fissured ideologically and willing to suppress the voices and votes of the vulnerable (Scheyett, 2021).

  • Experiences with Medicaid Renewal and Reauthorization Policies in the
           Context of Child Health and Vaccine Coverage

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Holroyd T; Oloko O, Limaye R.
      Pages: 105 - 113
      Abstract: AbstractDifficulties complying with Medicaid recertification requirements may be responsible for a portion of Medicaid disenrollments and may impact access to preventive care. This study aimed to explore the barriers parents experienced renewing their child’s Medicaid, how those barriers impact access to healthcare, and how changes in Medicaid policy can improve child health outcomes. To understand the barriers associated with Medicaid renewal, authors conducted in-depth interviews (N = 24) with racially and demographically diverse parents living in Baltimore. They found that administrative burden, lack of awareness regarding reauthorization, challenges with navigation assistance, and lack of access to the renewal system were crucial barriers to renewing Medicaid. Many participants identified negative impacts on child health outcomes resulting from lapses in coverage, including lack of healthcare access and missed immunizations. Drawing on these findings, the authors provide recommendations for streamlining and clarifying the Medicaid renewal process in Maryland, and the role of social work policy and practice in reducing barriers to renewal.

  • COVID-19 and First Responder Social Workers: An Unexpected Mental Health
           Storm

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Davies H; Cheung M.
      Pages: 114 - 122
      Abstract: AbstractCOVID-19 has disproportionally affected people living in poverty; new immigrants; and those living in healthcare settings (hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes), shelters, detention centers, and prisons. The pandemic has also significantly impacted social workers who face hidden mental health consequences. The resultant feelings and behaviors are similar to disaster-induced trauma, including excessive rumination, hypervigilance, exhaustion, and excessive crying as a result of the adrenaline-driven fight-or-flight response. This article aims to provide information for social workers to protect their own mental health while caring for their clients and raise awareness about social workers’ needs in frontline duties. It summarizes five challenges for first responder social workers: (1) COVID-19 impacts on resource constraints, (2) employment insecurity, (3) disenfranchised guilt, (4) physical distancing and caution fatigue, and (5) managing self-care. The article offers recommendations to ameliorate distress and promote advocacy efforts for readjustment. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, social workers who provide essential care in the field need self-assessment to better understand the impacts these challenges have on them as helpers. The article ends with recommendations to encourage social workers to apply the strengths-based approach to exemplify their professional values in times of pandemic distress.

           Social Workers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pooler D; Barros-Lane L.
      Pages: 123 - 133
      Abstract: AbstractGiven the paucity of research on the experiences of women who are sexually abused by clergy as adults and the advent of the #ChurchToo movement in 2017, the results of a mixed-methods national study highlight the experiences of those who survived the abuse and report on what factors are most healing in their recovery. Internet-based surveys with both quantitative and qualitative items were completed by 159 respondents. Less than 10 percent reported receiving help and support from their congregation after they reported the abuse, and about half of the respondents were blamed for the abuse and ignored by people in their congregations. In spite of the poor responses from their churches, these respondents reported positive beliefs regarding their ability to recover and heal. Mental health counseling was listed as a primary mechanism for healing. Multiple regression was used to develop a model of resilience. Faith in God was the most salient predictor. Those who survived sexual abuse need social workers who can navigate the complex set of factors and issues at the intersection of religion/spirituality, mental health treatment, and policy advocacy, including the ability to see what has been helpful about religious experiences and what has not.

  • Creating Conditions for Professional Development through a Trauma-Informed
           and Restorative Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lauridsen M; Munkejord M.
      Pages: 135 - 144
      Abstract: AbstractProfessionals in social work and nursing meet people who, due to trauma, struggle with self-regulation of emotions and social behavior. Caring for trauma survivors requires connection and compassion. Previous research has indicated that many professionals, some with their own trauma histories, do not feel sufficiently equipped to practice self-care or cope with challenging communication. To address how insecurity and trauma are rooted in deeper individual and structural causes of social injustice, social workers and nursing students (N = 29) were invited to participate in action research and a restorative circle process. The aim was to provide professionals the opportunity to challenge and reflect upon their own practices by introducing them to a trauma-informed and restorative practice based on the importance of building emotional safety and connection. The findings suggest that given time and space for reflection in a setting characterized by equality and safety, professionals can develop increased (a) self-awareness and compassion, (b) emotional safety and tolerance of stress in challenging communication, (c) trauma understanding, and (d) personal growth. A change to a more restorative and trauma-informed practice could lead to increased interpersonal competence and well-being among professionals and clients.

  • African Americans and Law Enforcement: Tackling a Foundational Component
           of Structural Reform—Union Disciplinary Procedures

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hodge D; Clintonia Boddie S.
      Pages: 145 - 154
      Abstract: AbstractDespite numerous high-profile deaths of African Americans at the hands of law enforcement, little attention has been paid to the issue of police reform in the social work literature. To address this gap, this article focuses on a topic that has been singled out as the most important area of potential reform: restructuring the disciplinary provisions embedded in the contracts negotiated between police unions and municipalities. These provisions frequently shield problematic officers from public accountability by hindering their identification, sanctioning, and dismissal. Given that collective bargaining agreements are typically negotiated behind closed doors, social workers can play an essential role by advocating for public negotiations between municipal and union leaders, so provisions that obstruct public accountability for unfit officers can be identified and eliminated. The article concludes by delineating three alternative models to the status quo—increased neighborhood policing, disbanding or defunding police departments, and police abolition zones—and notes that no model can be successful if those who abuse their power cannot be removed from their positions of public trust. The authors suggest that social workers collaborate with African American residents in a given community to ensure that their preferences regarding community justice are enacted in a manner that reflects their aspirations.

  • Women and Incarceration: Introducing a Gendered Lens into Smart
           Decarceration

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gottlieb A; Mahabir M.
      Pages: 155 - 164
      Abstract: AbstractGiven the scope of mass incarceration, it is quite appropriate that promote smart decarceration (PSD) has been identified as one of the 13 Grand Challenges for Social Work. The aims of PSD are both ambitious and critical but do not address women explicitly. The authors argue that PSD should incorporate a gendered lens because a gender-responsive framework is critical for these three reasons: (1) women’s pathways to incarceration are different than men's and are shaped by their social status and multiple forms of marginalization based on race, socioeconomic status, gender, and other factors; (2) women face gender-specific needs behind bars (especially those related to reproductive health) and have higher rates of behavioral health needs (e.g., mental health disorders, substance use issues) than men; and (3) although men and women face similar reentry challenges (e.g., housing, parenting, economic hardship, behavioral health), women experience many of these risk factors at higher rates, and their social status shapes how these needs impact their reentry. Until social workers and other advocates consider all the various and intersecting identities of all those impacted by the criminal legal system, they will be never be successful in ending mass incarceration.

  • Perceived Parental Support in Teen Dating Violence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Fitzpatrick J.
      Pages: 165 - 174
      Abstract: AbstractThis qualitative study explores heterosexual teen girls’ perceptions of parental support in abusive dating relationships during high school. Teen girls are at high risk for dating violence. Symbolic interaction theory asserts that meaning is assigned through our interactions, and these assigned meanings then influence our behavior. Findings demonstrate that teen girls assign meaning to dating and abuse, which is often reflective of traditional gender stereotypes, through their interactions with their boyfriends. However, due to the life course, parents of teens are in a unique position to provide different meanings that foster healthier dating relationships. Analysis of semistructured retrospective interviews found that, like adults, teen victims perceived parents’ support to be inconsistent. Parents who provided support, such as ensuring safety, giving advice, and involving other professionals, played an instrumental role in helping teen girls end abusive dating relationships. Social workers should engage parents, schools, and peers in prevention education efforts that challenge gender norms and provide training on how to effectively intervene and provide support to teens that are experiencing abuse in their dating relationships.

  • The Transition to Siblinghood: An Understudied Yet Influential Process
           Pertinent to Social Work Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ward K.
      Pages: 175 - 183
      Abstract: AbstractAcross cultures, the majority of individuals will have a sibling relationship in their lifetime. Of particular importance to parents and children is the transition to siblinghood, which refers to the process wherein a child becomes a sibling. Although many parents are concerned about how their children will adjust during the transition to siblinghood, scant empirical work on this subject exists. Available empirical work on the transition to siblinghood has stemmed from developmental psychology; however, social work researchers have yet to deeply explore this body of work. The transition to siblinghood is a topic that is rife with opportunity for social work researchers, who have the ability to study this transition from culturally sensitive, person-in-environment, and social justice perspectives. This article provides an overview of the elements and importance of the transition to siblinghood, introduces a theoretical framework relevant to social workers, reviews existent empirical work on the transition to siblinghood, and elucidates limitations in the literature that social work researchers are adept to address. The article concludes with four recommendations to researchers who are interested in studying the transition to siblinghood through a social work lens.

  • Promoting Recovery among Older Adults with Serious Mental Illness

      Authors: Dell N; Murphy A, Stewart M, et al.
      Pages: 184 - 190
      Abstract: In 2020, approximately 4 million adults 50 and older had a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia spectrum, bipolar, or major depressive disorder with marked impairment in functioning in areas such as work, social relationships, or activities of daily living (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA], 2021a). Despite an increase in research on psychosocial interventions to support the well-being and functioning of older adults with serious mental illness (OASMI), evidence for their implementation in community settings is limited (Zechner et al., 2019). In addition, this population may face double stigmatization related to both older age and mental illness, which can disrupt help-seeking behaviors (Bodner et al., 2018). The purpose of this practice update is to summarize the recent systematic review evidence on psychosocial interventions for OASMI. We also discuss the development of older adult–specific psychiatric rehabilitation services in one mental health center to highlight the role that social workers can have in providing services to this underserved population.

The acknowledgment that systemic racism is pervasive and constitutes a public health emergency, because of its mechanisms of action at the individual and institutional levels, is an important one (Carmichael & Hamilton, 1967; Feagin & Bennefield, 2014). Without it, the reproduction of inequality, pain, and suffering is almost a certainty. Systemic racism (referred to interchangeably here as institutional racism) provides validation for White racist beliefs about people of color, often using knowledge produced by institutions dominated by powerful white ideals and actors as justification (Feagin & Bennefield, 2014). Using research that perpetually queries the failings of people of color, while remaining blind to investigating and recording any White racist role in the poor social and health outcomes that are a consequence of being racially targeted (Feagin & Bennefield, 2014; Yearby & Mohapatra, 2020), allows for the violations of people’s basic human rights in plain sight.
