As I recently told a social work class, one of the unique perspective of social workers, is understanding a client and the environment around them. This is certainly something that I practice daily, and has informed me in the various clients that I have/had work with. Whether it was a child from a single parent home living in public housing, or an adult with chronic mental illness who’s longing for connection.

 

An issue that is commonly known, but is complex is low socio-economic status or poverty. Poverty is more than just one’s annual total income, or whether one has a job, and its affects all aspects of daily life that can become emotionally, mentally, and/or physically traumatic- trauma that can affect one’s DNA and future generations.

 

So here’s what I listened to a couple of weeks ago:

Poverty Myth

Economics of Surrogacy

Systemic School Segregation

Here’s What I listened to Last Week #2

The world of the creative and designers have always seemed like the cool kids club or something, but I have only recently realized that creativity and being a creative are not merit badges that one earns, but rather a label that one’s self gets to define and identify with. Listening, understanding, and finding solutions, or also known as counseling is a very much a creative process the I engage in on a daily basis. I have also come to appreciate other aspects of my personal life, that can also be defined as creative.

 

I am a bit bummed that I won’t be able to attend Creative Mornings Chattanooga this Friday. So in honor of all things creative, here are the things that I listened to last week:

•How to Design a Life

•You Can Design Climate Change

•Designing a Family

•Design+Parenting Read the rest of this entry »
