Proving that pathetic fallacy is a strong literary technique in enhancing the tone or mood of a story, it also within this story shows how John might not be fully committed to his partner. Not in the sense of loyalty, but how he only cares for her physical well being and does not take time to think about her mental health. Another factor of Ann’s mental health being affected is that she is in isolation, she had thought that she would be okay, as she has been a farmer's wife for seven years and being alone for a lot of it, however this time was different. Ann feels like she is being held captive in her own house, and because of the storm she is unable to leave the house. Her isolation ultimately leads to the decision to cheat on her husband, which has the repercussion of her husband killing himself in order to never have to confront her about this. The purpose of Steven coming over was to visit Ann to make sure she was alright, but one thing lead to another and they ended up in bed

Social work is a very unique profession. The other professions that are in the same realm as social work are very specialized, however, social workers must have a broad range of knowledge in order to help their clients. This is where multiple agencies come together to make sure professionals are properly trained and knowledgeable. In the field of social work, ethics and values are the key principles that provide the basis for the mission. It is these principles that guide the decisions and actions of everyone in the profession. Without a clear set of guiding principles, social work professionals could do more harm than good. This profession sees people during highly emotional times in their lives, and that can be extremely challenging. The National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics not only sets the standards, but also guides a social worker through dealing with ethical dilemmas. As we evolve as a society, so have the guiding principles and values for the social work profession.
The commitment to act ethically is an essential aspect of social work due to the effect it can have on the quality of the service offered to those who engage with us. Through group discussions in our foundations of social work practice I have become extremely ethically aware and now will always seek to ascertain and respect, as far as possible, each individual’s preferences, wishes and involvement in decision making. From discussions with my fellow classmates I have learnt to strive to respect and uphold the values and principles of the profession by making sure I promote and work towards the code of ethics wherever possible. This in turn enables me act in a reliable, honest and trustworthy manner having worked closely with service users in a professional setting and learned of their good and bad experiences with practitioners through the service user experience we undertook in class. I believe I am now in a good position to apply the social work ethical principles to my professional practice, in a way that seeks to empower my service users and enable me to emulate the best practice. In addition from reading social work journals and staying on top of news regarding the profession more generally I am knowledgeable about the value base of social work as a profession .
As a social worker and or a human services worker we must focus on helping the client and the best interest of the client. In certain situations, we all carry to our picked range of work our own particular convictions and qualities. (SWT) Most of the clients that you come across and that you will help will be helpless, that would be why we are working with them, and are in need of a buffer from anymore abuse. We may need to change some of these convictions keeping in mind the end goal to work agreeably and for the best conclusion of our clients in the work setting. Maintaining a healthy relationship with your client you must keep tabs on moral issues identified by the “code of conduct” that you agree to when you decide to work in this field, you have to be attentive to individual qualities and how they may effect of the quality of care that you give.
When Sally and John have their brief affair, which both spouses are aware of, the first problem of unfaithfulness becomes on display. As the day goes on, the tensions generated by this situation grow more acute, culminating in a physical confrontation between Sam and John.
He loved her and he wanted to give her nice things when he pays off his mortgage on the farm All John’s actions to make Ann happy“naively proud of Ann” and he thinks that she is most important person in his life, and never thinks about any woman only Ann revolved in his life around her and devoted his life to Ann.John trusted Ann completely.On the other hand, Ann is selfish and she thinks only of herself and has affair with steven without predicting what the sequences would be. Ann was searching for inner satisfaction, so Ann took advantage of her husband trust to satisfy her needs Ann demonstrated that when she looked at Steven “Swiftly she was making the comparison again;his face so different to Jon’s, so handsome and young and clean shaven”.Ann started to look at Steven as a man different than her husband.Steven is the young and attractive man. Steven aroused something on her when he hugged her, something never experienced it with John so that why she changed her appearance, dressed up and fixed her hair to look attractive to him. Ann took her decision to betrayed her husband and did the betrayal on purpose, Ann forgot that she is a married woman and jeopardize her marriage and losing her dignity because of her
John, the narrator’s controlling, but loving, husband represents the atypical man of the time. He wants his wife to get better and to be able to fill the role of the perfect wife that society expected from her. John, being a doctor, did not quite believe that her mental illness was out of her control and insisted on
This implies that she’s lost all hope of communication and understanding between her and John in their marriage. She no longer holds the hope that she will get better with the help and support of her husband. This only throws the woman farther and deeper into depression in the prison of her mind. Because she lacked the feelings of fulfillment, love and support, she fell into a deep and dark depression that affected her both physically and emotionally.
One ethical principles from the core values that I feel most strongly that is needed is dignity and worth of the person. If we, as the practitioners don’t believe our client is worthy then we would be incapable of advocating for them, servicing them, and putting the effort required to help them. Dignity and Worth of the person mean believing everyone deserves the same treatment. We have to be able to accept our client’s culture, sexual orientation, anything that makes them who they are. If we can accept our client, we will not be able to work with them. Another reason I believe dignity and worth of the person is essential, is because Social Workers need that reminder when dealing with clients that might have committed a crime against an innocent person.
The narrator says that Sally’s “husband gets angry and once he broke the door where his foot went through, though most days he is okay. Except he won't let her talk on the telephone. And he doesn't let her look out the window. And he doesn't like her friends, so nobody gets to visit her unless he is working.” This entire paragraph shows that there is a power gap between Sally and her husband and their relationship is abusive and that Sally let’s him have the power he craves.
She tells John that she wants to visit Henry and Julia, her cousins, but he tells her that “she wasn’t able to” (Gilman 45). She is left feeling helpless: “what is one to do?” (Gilman 39). By suppressing her feelings, the narrator slowly “creeps” (Gilman 52) towards insanity.
