Individuals that are suffering from poverty have limited resources and are unable to enjoy many of the luxury things in life. Most importan unexpected life events- such as unplanned pregnancy or death of a spouse- can dramatically alter a person’s lifestyle and family living arrangements (Zastrow pg.550)”. The macro-social-system theory would be most suitable for my practice with individuals that are suffering from kidney failure. “Micro-sy seek to make sense of the effects of group life on individuals (Zastrow pg. 550)”. Patients that suffer from kidney failure have to learn how to live life by making different lifestyle choices. The aspect of this theory I social problems occur when society or some part of it becomes disorganized (Zastrow pg. 560)”. The field of social work is based around correcting societal problems.

Chapter 10 Respond to this post also: In economics the cycle of poverty is “ set of factors or events by which poverty once started is likely to continue unless there is outside intervention. Poverty can be caused by an individual being unemployed an individual having poor physical health emotional problems lack of education as well as other things (Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman 2016). Poverty is like a contagious cold with bad side effects poverty can affect someone mentally and emotionally. Not being able to provide just the necessities to live a normal day-to-day life can take a toll on anyone regardless of the race. Having financial burdens are the worst problems cause while money flow is stuck the bills still rolling in. Culturally and individually goes hand-and-hand when we speak of poverty. Culture tends to be the explanatory variable particularly due to the sometimes visible connection between culture and race (Glazer 2000). These scholars argue that poverty is largely the result of social and behavioral deficiencies in individuals that ostensibly make them less ec due to the persistence of poverty in certain areas the behavioral perspective is reinforced by the culture of poverty thesis which suggests that individuals create sustain and transmit to future generations a culture that reinforces the various social and behavioral deficiencies (Rodgers 2000). I would illustrate holding one accountable for their actions. I believe culturally we are held back which allow hurdles for an individual t ” I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” Breaking a cycle is scary it means getting out of your normal routine and breaking into something new. I believe we need to be taught about finance and investments. In my opinion due to the injustice system we live in I strongly believe minorities are taking education seriously and trying to get on track financially. We are unaware of the financial aspect K. K.
