Week 10: Trauma-Informed Social Work and Mindfulness The heart of the social work profession calls for treating clients with respect and not viewing their problems as pathological. Consistent with this value, trauma-informed social work as a model encourages social workers to explore with clients how behaviors and/or problems that surface may be a result of traumatic events (Kawam & Martinez, 2016). It focuses not simply on symptom management but on skill building (Wilson & Nochajski, 2016). This model can be incorporated into both micro, mezzo, and macro work. For example, on an organizational level, trauma-informed care looks to see how the service delivery system can offer an environment that is safe for clients, social workers, and staff. Based on Buddhist principles, mindfulness interventions focus on helping clients….
CHAPTER 13: THE MARKETING OF SERVICES ADDITIONAL CASE STUDY NEW LINE IN MOBILE PHONES One of the oldest principles of marketing is that sellers may sell features, but buyers essentially buy benefits. This is a distinction sometimes lost on technology led organisations, and the service sector is no exception. Recent experience of the UK’s largest telecommunications company, Vodafone Airtouch, illustrates how crucial it is to see service offers in terms of the benefits they bring to customers. The company was aware of extensive research which had found high levels of confusion among purchasers of mobile phones, with a seemingly infinite permutation of features and prices. With four main networks to choose from, dozens of tariffs and hundreds of handsets, it easy to see why buyers sought means of….

Evidence-based practice has gained popularity in the healthcare industry in the recent years. This has expanded to other countries who know implement evidence-based practice as part of their approach such as Canada, England and Australia (Huston, 2017). Evidence-based practice is the purposeful use of information that is most up to date and researched for the care of patients (Huston, 2017). The difference between evidence-based practice and best practice is that best practice is more of a proven standard that reports success among practitioners but does not involve the amount of research that backs up evidence-based practice (Huston, 2017). Evidence based practice integrates….
Did the liberal Welfare Reforms lay the foundations of the Welfare State? This essay will assess how far reaching the liberal Welfare Reforms were and how far they can be said to represent the foundations of the Welfare State. The Welfare State is when the Government takes care of the health and well-being of all its citizens from “cradle to grave”. The liberal Welfare Reforms did represent a move away from “laissez-faire” towards a programme of social reform. The liberal reforms concentrated on five main groups. These were the young, introducing school meals and medical inspections with the Education Act 1906 and 1907, the old with the Old Age Pensions Act 1908, and the sick who were helped with the first part of the National Health Act 1911…..
Introduction We cannot even endeavor to evaluate and comprehend change management models until we thoroughly understand the meaning of ‘change’. Even though there is no general definition of change, we would correlate it with words such as alteration, transmutation, metamorphosis, evolution, rejuvenation and modification.Hughes (2006) has used a generic definition which is “any alteration in the status quo”. Even far back as 500 BC Heraclius quoted that “change is constant” it occurs everywhere. It is a defining force in our life, and could be argued that a state of continuous change has almost become routine Luecke (2003). Change is extremely important it will not disappear nor dissipate; it has been studied and researched for many years by different organizations each with the same intention, which is to achieve….

Discussion 1: Measuring Violent Crime “Don’t go out at night or you will be murdered.” “Keep your windows locked or someone will break in and rape you.” “Violent crime is increasing exponentially; you have to protect yourself.” These are common statements heard daily, but what are the facts? Crime can be broken down and measured in many different ways. There are many different types of crime, including property crimes, violent crimes, white-collar crimes, and cybercrimes. The FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program identifies violent crime as four offenses: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. The number (incidences) of these four crimes has increased in the past decade due to population changes; however, in order to account for changing populations, the UCR uses a prevalence….
Introduction Survival of species depends on several factors. These include availability of food, adaptation to the environment, reproduction and interaction with other species (Ridley, 2009). Paleontological records have given evidence that evolution has taken place and species that have survived are those which have learned to adapt to their environment and co-exist with other species (Ridley, 2009). There are many theories used to explain the evolution of species, their survival and extinction. One of the more popular hypotheses is the Red Queen Hypothesis. Derived from Lewis Carroll’s ‘Through the Looking-Glass”, the Red Queen observed that, “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place” (Lewis, 1960, p. 46). This statement inspired the Red Queen hypothesis, which proposes that in….
A business may be interested in location based mobile networking so as to reach its target market. Location based mobile networking allows the business management to access the location most visited by its clients. The management therefore directs marketing efforts to those locations as opposed to randomly advertising. This saves marketing costs for the business while increasing the businesses ability to reach all its customers. Question 2 The development of mobile phone technology has set the stage for the growth and success of sense networks and their products. This is even more so with the continued development of iphones, blackberries and smartphones in general, that can support more advanced mobile technologies. Question 3 The privacy risks surrounding citysense are not significant. Citysense does not share ones location and….
