REFLECTION ▪ Mrs. T and the translator and/or son would talk for a long time back and forth but we’d only get a short summary after that didn’t give us much detail ▪ Working with interpretation was challenging because we did not know what was actually being said ▪ I noticed that body language without knowing what was being said was not helpful ▪ I felt a sense of loss over how to communicate intentions ▪ I experienced confusion over inability to gain trust ▪ Both Coordinator and I had a lack of understanding of Vietnamese culture surrounding debt LINKAGES ▪ Anti-Oppressive Practice ▪ Cycle of Violence ▪ Right to Self-Determination Anti-Oppressive Practice o Social work theory that embraces the elimination of power imbalances due to culture, race, sex, gender, systemic, and other barriers that cause inequity (Al-Krenawi, Graham, & Habibov, 2016) This is a Sage policy so to enhance our understanding we engaged in the following actions: o Invited the Multi-Cultural Brokers ( to help us understand Vietnamese culture and reassure Mrs. T that we were “good guys” who only wanted to help in her o Used cultural sites on the internet for additional information o Asked Mrs. T to tell us what she could about her culture o Noticed she is Buddhist/Christian and sought understanding from a nearby Temple o Created a Vietnamese version of the weekly shopping list for her to use to increase her comfort level o Continually reassured her that she would not owe money for our help and that her children would not be held responsible for their father’s debts Cycle of Violence Important to know Diagram courtesy of Cycle of Violence ✓ Mrs T was experiencing mental and psychological abuse as explained by this model ✓ It was accelerating so that the “violence” phase was almost continuous ✓ She was at serious risk as demonstrated by being neglected with a badly broken hip ✓ She was also being financially controlled ✓ Husband was borrowing large sums of money and forcing her to sign documents ✓ Husband was lying to her saying that he would default on the payments if she left and then her children would have to pay the money back ✓ This explains her distrust of us and her worries about owing money ✓ She had been mentally beaten down and was very scared as a result CASW Code of Ethics Value 1: Respect for the Inherent Dignity and Worth of Persons Applicable Principles: ✓ Social workers uphold each person’s right to self-determination, consistent with that person’s capacity and with the rights of others ✓ Social workers respect the client’s right to make choices based on voluntary, informed consent (CASW, 2005) Due to language barriers and cultural differences, these were difficult ethical requirements to navigate ▪ I did not always feel I was unable to effectively communicate, even via a translator, all the information I thought Mrs. T needed to make decisions ▪ Also it was hard to put aside my cultural feelings about the rights of women to embrace that she may not carry those same beliefs PROFESSIONAL RESPONSE ▪ Continued self reflection to examine the cultural beliefs I carry ▪ Commitment to attend more diverse cultural celebrations to expand my knowledge ▪ I have a good understanding of the Cycle of Violence theory but could use to read more research about the risks for murder when someone leaves an abusive relationship or returns ▪ I have since read a social work practice article called “The Vortex of Violence” which explains how the cycle of violence destroys a person’s self-worth and thus ability to leave and their capacity to recover. It also presents a treatment model that uses expressive arts to help abused women heal (Carrington, 2014). ▪ Talked with supervisor about the nuances of self-determination. ▪ Will take these learning steps earlier in future encounters with culturally diverse clients. Discussion Questions 1. How do you think culture might affect the CASW definition of self-determination? 2. Many of you work with children and families where providing supports to keep a family together or bring them back together is important. Safe House doesn’t offer any kind of family counselling to correct abuse. Rather, the person is removed from the situation and given support to heal and move on with their life without the abuser(s). What thoughts do you have about that difference? ***NOTE: Clients have the right to return to an abusive situation if they choose and safety planning is done to support them.
