Ally Development

Ally Development. Ally Development. Discussion: Ally DevelopmentIf you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But, if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.—Lila Watson, Aboriginal activistThe above quote captures one aspect of ally development. The Edwards article provides important information about becoming an ally and developing advocacy skills, focusing on effective identity development, consistency, and sustainability. As a starting point, consider these questions regarding the article:
How does the Watson quote mirror those ideas?
How can you identify, remain consistent, and practice sustainability in your ally development?
In this Discussion, review the article and explore the topic of social justice ally development.

Alliance members work together to change or demolish oppressive structures. According to the United Nations Development Program, they strive to achieve an ideal of a society in which the allocation of resources is equal, and all members of society are physically and mentally safe and secure. Children in the foster care system are a group of individuals who, in my view, need to have someone on their side, and I consider myself to be one of those people due to my work history background. Children are often removed from their families due to the severe damage done to the child welfare system, either to protect them or because they are not receiving the care or therapy they need. Due to their extended placement in the foster care system, many children get inadequate help. Some even become corrupt due to their protracted placement in the system.
An ally that I would continue to advocate for would be teenagers in foster care: their vulnerability and the need to be protected just as much as younger children. Many communities are missing this overly populated group because most people lack knowledge about the foster care system and the welfare of children placed in the system. According to the adopt us Kids website, there are over 400,000 in the US in foster care, which shows us statistically l there is a great need. “Every child deserves a home” (Dave Thomas) with the vastly growing number of children in care and drastically low number of foster homes to take in children currently. The teenagers tend to get lost in the everyday revolving door of the foster care system due to many homes not wanting to accept them because they are teenagers. This also does not count the teenagers facing criminal charges, mental health diagnoses, etc. Becoming allies for this population could hopefully provide continued education and resources to bridge the gap between this population and the communities in which they live.
A potential obstacle would be encountering resistance from a teenager in the system due to a lack of trust and maltreatment while receiving care. We can see some stubbornness and resistant behaviors with the teenagers because they are very familiar with the system. They believed that their case was unique and no one could help them when it is prevalent and different avenues can help them: almost all the cases when handling teenagers involve running away and refusals. The only way to overcome these potential obstacles is to be persistent and be motivated to promote change within these individuals.

Social Science Question

Social Science Question. Social Science Question. i. Self-determination
Mack opens up about wanting to commit suicide to his peers first then to me. Other than telling me about his plans, he further asks me to keep it a secret. In as much as Mack’s right to self-determination should be upheld and encouraged, and he should be guided in establishing and defining his goals. When his behaviors or projected actions represent a grave, predictable, and imminent risk to my clinical judgment, I could limit his right to self-determination. Mack clearly expresses his suicidal thoughts and this poses a risk to his life and the mental health of his parents. I would obtain consent from him to inform his parents so that they offer him the support he needs and make the situation at home more conducive for Mack considering his current mental health. If Mack does not consent, the plan would be to go ahead and inform them as is required of me because keeping this information confidential is more detrimental than it is of any good to him.
In Mack’s case, I would call in his parents and discuss with them his suicidal thought so that they can watch him closely while at home and create an environment for him at home that lowers his chances of going through with his plans. Where disclosure is necessary to avert substantial, anticipated, and impending danger to a client or other identifiable person, or when laws or regulations demand disclosure without a client’s agreement, the common assumption that social workers will keep information private does not hold (NASW-Code of ethics). The plan would be to explore the option of obtaining consent from him before involving his parents by explaining clearly to him why his parents should know about his suicidal thoughts and why it is great benefit for him. When possible, social workers should notify clients about the disclosure of confidential information and the potential implications before the disclosure is made. This is true whether social workers share confidential information because of a legal requirement or because the client has given their approval (The NASW-Code of ethics).
ii. Strengths of Mack
The first strength about Mack’s situation is that he is actually opening up about his suicidal thoughts. This is a strength because it is a call for help. This is help seeking behavior and it shows that even though he is planning on committing suicide, he is ready to receive help. Mack opening up is a call for help. Gives us time and room to step in and give him all the help he needs. It also gives us a chance to address the issues triggering these thoughts and possibly address them and save his life.
The second strength in Mack’s situation is that even though he has these suicidal thoughts, he is not sure if he’ll actually execute them. This is a strength because him not being sure about whether he will commit suicide or not allows us a chance to step in and convince him otherwise. Furthermore, the fact that he is not sure if he will do it, gives us more time to step in and offer needed treatment before he progresses to attempting suicide.
The third strength is that Mack is able to express his feelings of anger, how he feels about his parents’ divorce and how much he misses his brother. This shows that he has insight of his current situation and makes it easy to intervene because he clearly states the triggers.
iii. How would you use these strengths
A comparison of teenagers with severe and mild suicide ideation revealed that in times of stress, family, school, and peers can operate as useful support systems. The key to accessing these support systems is a tight interpersonal bond. The importance of the school as a support system is emphasized (King, C. A., Hovey, J. D., Brand, E., Wilson, R.,

Time Series Analysis

Time Series Analysis. Time Series Analysis. Full instructions attached
Overview
Another way to analyze fiscal data over time is via Time Series Analysis. Time series analysis enables public administrators and policy analysts to examine values of a variable over equally spaced intervals of time (e.g., income figures monthly or yearly). Using times series analyses, administrators and analysts can discern patterns in the values that then enable them to forecast future values based on historical and existing patterns.
A time series plot allows an analyst to look for (1) outliers and sudden shifts in data patterns, (2) unusual observations or shifts, and (3) long-term increase or decrease in the data values. A trend plot also will show whether the data pattern is linear, or nonlinear, as the time series plot. Then, the question to be asked is, why?
Instructions
• To successfully complete this assignment, please refer to the Research Paper: Simple Time Series Analysis Assignment Guide found on the Research Paper: Simple Time Series Analysis Assignment page.
• For this assignment, you will compute and interpret a Simple Time Series Analysis called “Exponential Smoothing” and write a four-page report stating your findings, including chart(s).
• Once the plot is completed, you will write a four-page report, including chart(s), interpreting the findings.
• This is a Doctoral-level research assignment designed to test your ability to carefully research, effectively organize, and concisely communicate a nuanced understanding of the concepts and issues raised in the assignment. While the minimum page limit is short (as is often the case in public policy/public administration briefings), students are expected to craft efficient, highly substantive papers. You are expected to comport with the highest writing, research, and ethical standards.

1. If political compromise is required to develop energy and environmental policies, whatare the values that policymakers should follow when developing effective energy andenvironmental policies? Think about a specific country besides the US as well, and consider it from their point of view as part of your discussion.
2. Energy and environmental policy debates tend to be forward looking with a focus onfuture impacts. Yet the actions of the past have resulted in significant long-termenvironmental problems that require vast sums of dollars to correct.
