Description of organizations or programs meeting the needs
How the organization or program meets the needs
Children in need
Children can be endangered because they need adults to care for them. They can experience problems with education, poverty, homelessness, and poor care from parents or guardians. 

 

Children need love, care, protection, and guidance from adults. Children can face mental health issues due to environmental problems, or they might have problems related to a mental disability. The needs of children may vary based on specific conditions.

 

 
Children need physical care and protection from older, abusive children or adults. Children also need food, clothing, and shelter to feel safe. 

 

Children are vulnerable and need physical, mental, and emotional protection. When a family is poor or homeless, the family may have trouble meeting his or her needs.

 

If the child is born with a mental disability, he or she will need assistance meeting his or her needs.
Each state differs. Some states have government organizations, such as a Department of Human Services or a Department of Children’s Services, which may provide resources to children and families. These organizations may help with food, shelter, financial help, and more. 

 

Some community mental health organizations provide mental health services to children and families. The state health department provides services from immunizations to general health care. Additional organizations, such as religious organizations, may also assist.
The local department addressing human services may have the resources to provide food, shelter, and mental health care for children. If a child must be placed outside the home, the child may be placed in foster care, sent to school, and, in extreme mental health cases, be sent for treatment. 

 

Mental health organizations may provide services, such as therapy and medication, for those with mental illness. For adolescents, care might be provided to help them transition from depending on adults to independent living.

Field Experience Agency Profile Analysis Worksheet

Imagine you are responsible for connecting people to agencies. In this role, you must be knowledgeable of what services the agencies offer, who can qualify for assistance, how resources are disseminated, and the availability of resources. Due to the required field experience element in your program of study, it is important to start the task early and to know what the experience will incorporate. During your program, there will be 2 field experiences. This assignment will start the critical-thinking process related to selecting an agency.

Conduct research about agencies that interest you as possible field experience placements.

Select 3 agencies of interest for this assignment.

Complete the charts below about the 3 agencies of interest researched.

BSHS 355 Week 1 Learning Team Charter

Create the Learning Team Charter.

Please have one team member submit this as a word document to the assignments tab upon completion. I have included the LT Charter that is required for this course. You will not receive credit if you do not use the correct charter.

 

Part of your grade for this assignment will include an evaluation of your initial team work, and how you handle any issues that may arise.  This charter is meant to be a collaborative effort, therefore only one, cohesive response should be listed under each section, not each individual member’s response.  Failure to do this will result in a zero.

Any communication regarding the Learning Teams that occurs outside of the team forum must be documented in your team forum.  This can be done by copying and pasting a transcript of any chats, or summarizing a telephone conversation.  This is for everyone’s benefit!

The professional’s role
A domestic violence program
A domestic violence program provides protection and resources to individuals treated violently by their spouses or partners. These programs can have many components. Shelters are available for individuals needing protection from violence. Additionally, some services provide resources to individuals once they leave the shelter to help them regain independence.
As mentioned, this program may provide protection for affected individuals, but it may also provide protection for children in the individual’s care. There are generally a large percentage of young children in need of protection in addition to the individual seeking help. These programs generally do not provide service for males, as outpatient services are generally offered to the female population. Although the majority of domestic violence victims are women, as many as 24,000 men report being abused each year (Burger, 2014, pg 76)
In many residential programs, counselors provide advice and counseling. They assist residents to lead their lives away from their abusers. 

 

Victims in the program wishing to move on with their lives, away from the perpetrator, will find advocates available to work with them. These advocates help program participants find work, housing, legal support, and other community services. Some shelters can provide some form of legal assistance.
The role of professionals working in shelters is to help program participants cope with the abuse, as well as losing their home and community. This is often a traumatic time for victims. 

 

Oftentimes, victims come to the shelter with nothing and need help putting their lives back together. The role of the professional is to help them find work and shelter, rebuild their lives, and assist in their emotional recovery.

Susan is a 28-year-old single mother, whose husband left her when her son, Thomas, was 2 years old.  Thomas is now 12 and has been getting in trouble at home and school. Thomas is getting sent to the principal’s office repeatedly, and when home, refuses to complete his homework. Sometimes Thomas refuses to attend school altogether. Susan is overwhelmed and unsure what to do. Thomas blames her for “scaring” his father away, and Susan often finds herself crying and depressed. She has tried disciplining Thomas, but nothing seems to work. She does not know who, or where, to turn for help.
