Discussion 1: The Effects of Means-Tested Social Programs

For this Discussion, review this week’s resources, including the Logan Family video case. Consider the means-tested programs that might be available to her in your state or region. Then, think about the likely long-term outcomes for Eboni and her child, if she chooses to parent. Finally, reflect on the state welfare policies that might help her manage the responsibilities of parenthood.

Post a brief explanation of the means-tested programs that might be available to Eboni. Be sure your answer is specific to the means-tested programs available in your state or region. Then, explain the potential long-term outcomes for Eboni and her child, if she chooses to parent. Finally, explain the state public assistance policies that might help Eboni manage the responsibilities of parenthood

DISCUSSION 2: WELFARE PROGRAMS:

For this Discussion, review this week’s resources. Consider whether you think means-tested programs, such as the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), create dependency among its recipients. Then, think about how the potential perception of dependency might contribute to the stigma surrounding welfare programs. Finally, reflect on the perceptions you might have regarding individuals who receive means-tested welfare and how that perception might affect your work with clients.

Logan Family Episode 4 Program Transcript FEMALE SPEAKER: Ebony and I have been talking about what’s been going on. And I know she’s been getting your differences of opinion. So I thought it would be a good idea for us all to meet and talk about her choices and the implication of those choices. MRS. JOHNSON: You are the reason we are here. Maybe you’d like to go first. What choices you think you have? I’ll tell you what choices you don’t have. You have this baby, and you want me to take care of it. I can’t afford it. I am done raising kids. FEMALE SPEAKER: Mrs. Johnson– MRS. JOHNSON: No, you want to talk about choices. So let’s talk about choices. You don’t have any but to not have that baby. That’s what I think. Where are you going to live? Because we are not going to have another baby in my house. FEMALE SPEAKER: Mrs. Johnson– MRS. JOHNSON: And where do you think you’re going to get the services that you need? When I was pregnant with you I was on Medicaid. But it was nothing, and it only lasts a few months. Men tell you what they want. But when it comes to children, women do the raising, the worrying, making ends meet. Listen to your mother. Get an abortion. EBONY: I don’t know. MRS. JOHNSON: An abortion is a hell of a lot cheaper than it’s going to be to work 16 years to feed and clothe and raise that child, Ebony. EBONY: Will you stop talking about money? It’s a baby, and it’s in me. It’s my choice. And I don’t know what to do. MRS. JOHNSON: You’re right. It’s your choice. I just don’t want you to end up like me, be a single mom at your age, just like my own mother was. I want you have all the things I didn’t get, college, a good job, that’s all. I just want you to have better. Logan Family Episode 4 Additional Content Attribution

daily tracking

Please turn in your behavior log and answers to the questions below:

Part 1. Continue your daily tracking of your behavior. What trends or patterns do you see in your behavior? Why might these trends be emerging? What seems to be a common predictor of your behavior? What are the common consequences?

Part 2. How is your tendency to engage in this behavior related to the biopsychosocial model? What are the biological, psychological, and social factors that lead you to engage in this behavior?

Part 3. How can you use the biopsychosocial model to promote behavior change? What biological, psychological, and social factors can you draw on to promote the change you are seeking to make?

The Role of Boundaries

The Role of Boundaries

Boundaries are an important feature of any organization. The nature of these boundaries has undergone considerable change over time. For many organizations today, what is inside or outside the boundaries is less clear and the ease of flow of information across boundaries has greatly increased. Boundaries can exist between individuals, between teams, between organizations, or even between an organization and its social environment (e.g., city, community, etc.).

  • Discuss your current organization or a previous organization in terms of boundaries. How did these boundaries affect you as an employee? Reflect on your mental construct of boundaries.
  • Explain what roles boundaries play and why these are important to organizations.
  • How permeable are your boundaries both personally and for your team?
  • Examine what determines how much rigidity and permeability is required by an organization and the teams in an organization.
  • Assess the benefits for many organizations to be less rigid and more permeable than previously.

The final paragraph of your post (3 to 4 sentences) should summarize the one or two main points that you are attempting to make in your post.
