You have already learned about ways structural oppression manifests itself in the United States. This week you will apply that knowledge to micro systems and identify concrete ways in which structural oppression impacts your clients’ ability to succeed.
Based on any of the films we have watched so far and Rules for Radicals, identify how structural oppression impacts our clients ability to succeed and how we as social workers can impact success for our clients. Please provide specific examples from the readings and films.
- In your responses to your peers, either support your peer by adding to their position or evaluate the plausibility of their suggestion regarding how social workers can help.
- Be sure to engage in a respectful dialogue
