Many people come to social workers with a victim mentality, feeling helpless and without a future based on their past. They have been discouraged, beat down and made to feel broken. Being a victim of abuse, trauma, toxic relationships or a victim of assault are all unfortunate circumstances, but they can be overcome. It may seem like a challenge, but it is possible with assistance and God. As social workers we are to provide client’s who have experienced repeated trauma with support and resources to assist them in their journey to a hopeful life. Painful experiences seem to get the best of us at times, but focusing on the client’s ability to survive these horrific events can give the client just the push they need to see that they are a survivor. Helping the client to realize their own strengths and skills used to overcome their trauma, instead of focusing on the trauma itself, is a powerful way to help clients achieve a positive outcome. Kisthardt (1992) states “intervention will work best when there is “an orientation to, and appreciation of, the uniqueness, skills, interests, hopes, and desires of each consumer, rather than a categorical litany of deficits” (p. 60-61).

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires all employers covered under the Act to give employees unpaid sick leave. "FMLA provides for up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for certain medical situations for either the employee or a member of the employee's immediate family. In many instances paid leave may be substituted for unpaid FMLA leave" or other accommodations may be required for an ailing employee. As well as FMLA, Nancy's modified schedule is also protected under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) which likewise notes, regarding an employee's reduced schedule: "a modified schedule may involve adjusting arrival or departure times, providing periodic breaks, altering when certain functions are performed, allowing an employee to use accrued paid leave, or providing additional unpaid leave. An employer must provide a modified or part-time schedule when required as a reasonable accommodation, absent undue hardship, even if it does not provide such schedules for other employees." However, there is evidence that Nancy's overall performance is causing her and her patients undue hardship, thanks to the poor quality of her performance, as well as her reduced number of days at the hospital.

Shannon met with several of Janet’s clients. After meeting with clients, she discovered a pattern in which the clients would report that they have not seen Janet in 2 to 3 months. However, the case files reflected face-to-face contact with all of her clients, despite what her clients stated. When Shannon investigated further, she found that the client notes were all at the same day and time, which is unlikely. Further, several of Janet’s clients needed referrals for counseling, but Janet never

To make sure discrepancies and changes in medication orders, I shadowed Ron to assess and educate the patient. I thought Ron displayed a very educational assessment by asking patient open-ended questions and gradually move to yes-no questions to help determine specific medication information. Ron’s avoided using medical jargon unless it is clear that the patient understands and is comfortable with the language used. He also prompt the patients to try to remember all applicable medication (patches, creams, inhalers, eye drops, injections, dietary supplements) and when patient could not remember what they were on he calls the primary care giver of the patient. Ron clarify unclear information in the patient’s chart, record the information
