4.2 Assignment Social Work and Domestic Violence

Instructions

  1. Read the report “Social Worker’s Practice Guide to Domestic Violence” from the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.
  2. Listen to: WHAT IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?. PDF notes of this Podcast are available at this website.
  3. Watch Domestic Violence Against Men.
  4. Navigate to the threaded discussion and respond to the following prompts based on what you learned from the Practice Guide and your library search:
    1. Given that experts have found that separating children from parents “does little to increase the safety and well-being of children” (Social Workers Practice Guide to Domestic Violence, 2010, p. 9) when children are involved in a domestic violence situation, identify and apply the three most important steps you would take in response, and discuss why you selected those steps the three most important. Reference the reading or other course material in your response.
    2. According to the reading when working with perpetrators of domestic violence, what are the two most important practices to take into account? What two practices (or two aspects of working with perpetrators) might be the most challenging or difficult for you? Identify at least one way or method you might employ to address those challenges citing evidence to support. What might you do differently depending on whether the primary perpetrator was female or male?
    3. Do you agree that men can also be victims of abuse? Why or why not? How might relationship dynamics and factors contribute to domestic violence as a more complex issue compared to the view of domestic violence as a one-sided issue it is often portrayed? Be specific.
    4. Identify one other important aspect of domestic violence you gained from the material. How do you respond to the data presented? How might it apply to your practice?
  5. Your initial post is due by the end of the fourth day of the workshop.
