Describe how social work with adolescents may be now and in the future. Reference any of your readings or viewings to make your points.
THE CHANGING FACE OF YOUTH- HUMAN BEHAVIOR 2
- Discussion post :Based on the unit readings, imagine how working with the youth of today might be different from even one generation ago. Brunck (2014) makes the point that “the array of apps on a young person’s smartphone or tablet is his or her identity.” The film Generation Likeshares how social media is impacting identity development as never before. For this discussion, address the following:
- Describe how social work with adolescents may be now and in the future. Reference any of your readings or viewings to make your points.
- Describe how you might engage with an adolescent today. What will engagement look like? Will you communicate via texting, e-mails, Twitter, or Facebook? How might you assess the influence technology has on the presenting problem that has brought the adolescent to you?
Address each of the above thoughtfully and concisely in 4–5 sentences.
- Response to laura:Respond to the post of at least one learner whose ideas on engagement are different from yours, and discuss how you might incorporate those differences into your thinking and social work practice. : “How social work with adolescents in today’s world and moving into the future of technology would require the social worker to understand how the adolescent is evolving through technology, adolescents seem to be much more advanced in the technology world than the generation or two before them. Technical literacy seems to be the cultural competency now and is basically the norm for this generation and future generations (Steyaert & Gould,2009). If we mention a school textbook, a tablet, a pencil, a binder, and a typewriter they have no clue what we are talking about. I learned this firsthand with my grandchildren.
As the technology world rapidly changes the social worker needs to be proactive most of the time, which means the social worker needs to keep up with reading current technologies that correlate with and affect adolescents. This can be done by looking online for alternative approaches and technological solutions. Critical thinking about technology is important. For example, we may be working with an adolescent female that is in therapy for inappropriate relationships with other individuals on Snapchat. This is where the social worker may need to do some research on Snapchat to understand how the app works and investigate how this app put this adolescent female in an inappropriate situation and figure out a solution (Steyaert & Gould,2009). As technology continues to grow as it will be forever changing, social workers will need to gain knowledge of the changes that will affect the adolescents being served. Social workers also need to keep in mind that social media technology is the primary way most adolescents communicate which may be a factor in how the adolescent is willing to interact.
How I would engage with adolescents today would be via email or text. I feel if Twitter or Facebook were to be used there may be a concern about the information being accessible to others that should not have it, and a boundary is needed in this area to protect confidentiality. ”

- DISCUSSION 2 -DIVERSE POLICY ANALYSIS METHODS-SOCIAL POLICING CLASS
What differentiates the value critical analysis from the analytic descriptive method evaluation? Note at least three differences. Identify the commitments inherent in the value critical approach. Which process would be best for analyzing the social issue you identified in the first discussion of Unit 1?
To practice thinking critically and communicating when advocating for your point of view on behalf of your clients, challenge a colleague’s policy analytic method, value critical analysis versus analytic descriptive, by providing competing arguments for using the opposite method.
- Respond to classmate :”Value critical analysis method is used to analyze policy or program. Analytic descriptive method is a program description or social policy. The differences between the two methods is that the analytic descriptive it is a move that is taken before the value critical analysis (Chambers & Bonk, 2013). The value critical analysis method address policy discerption of program features (Chambers & Bonk, 2013). Another difference is value critical approach does not address any judgment while analytic method stays at a descriptive level which can leave unanswered questions (Chambers & Bonk, 2013). Lastly, the analytic descriptive method is how things are viewed clearly and how things should work (Chambers & Bonk, 2013). While value critical analysis questions how a program should work or don’t work (Chambers & Bonk, 2013).
The process that would be best for analyzing the social issue that I identified of migration in the first discussion of unit 1 would be value critical analysis approach. When it comes to those individuals who migrated to the U.S the focus should be on what is already put in place in relation to the laws and how to make the law better for the things that are not working. For example, some of the polices that Trump had put in place that Biden has changed. According Tracking the Biden Agenda on Immigration Enforcement (2021) it is still needed to be done to lower the hardship of those noncitizen and families and provide sanctuary polices.” (the login info to get to the book is the same as post above only you click on social policing class and go to bookshelf on the left and click the social policing book. )
