Discuss about the Bachelor of Social Work.
The society and its elements are changing with the rapid speed. With the change in the customs and traditions of the society, the methods of providing the social services are also changing with the express speed. To analyze the major aspects related to the social changes and the society, the question for the discussion is identified as the “Whether human services are considered as an opportunity for social change or a means to change the social order”. Both the perspective asked in the question is related to the positive as well as the negative impact. The essay mainly helps in showing the reflection in which both the favorable and unfavorable aspects related to the subject are being analyzed. The topics covered in the essay are the major findings and the related conclusion to it.
Major Findings: Human service provision can be identified in both the aspects i.e. for earning the profit and for establishing the suitable reputation. The best example to identify the aspects related to the human services is identified in the professional office, which conduct the CSR activities to establish their image as well as to serve the humanity. Both the purposes are easily solved with the help of the social services (Harvey, 2016). The essay shows that the human services are considered as the social means to manage the control in the society. But, simultaneously some NGO’s and government organizations are doing the human services for supporting the needy people. I strongly agree and personally believe that the human services are identified to maintain the social order rather than bringing the change in the society
Positive aspect of the human Service as social order: Social order is identified to manage the cooperative and coordinated aspects within the organization and institutes. The different philosophers possess their different views for the social order in the organization. There are various reports and the evidences defined in different sectors in which it is clearly determined that the planning for the human services are mainly defined for the development and progress of the organization. To earn the maximum profit, the human service provisions are the ultimate solution. There are various organizations and the NGO’s which are using the human services for the development and the betterment of the organization. The organizations are also providing the suitable framework for the development of the humanity. The major aspects identified in the framework are the Managerial, Professional, Market and Community. The framework affects both in positive and negative manner (Kivel, 2000).
For managing the control and the power in the society, various different types of powers are taken into consideration. These powers are defined as the authority, force, coercion, persuasion, inducement and the appropriate manipulation. By considering these factors, it becomes easier to manage the aspects related to the society. But, simultaneously the inappropriate impact of the power is that it creates the forceful implications for the other person, which is not suitable.
The organizations are also looking forward to the common practice in the human service organizations which are named as the engagement, assessment, intervention, termination and review. By these services, the organization can able to manage the appropriate social order for the employees working in the organization. The CSR activities are considered as the most appropriate evidence of the common practice in which all these roles are played by the employees for fulfilling the social orders and the social responsibilities defined.
Apart from all these aspects, the two types of organizations are also identified which are helpful in defining the social order in an appropriate manner. These are named as the faith based organizations and the collectives or the cooperative type of organizations. Both these organizations provide their different social orders and in a different manner. The faith based organizations have their specific religious values and the cooperative organizations shared their suitable decision power (Kivel, 2006). These organizations also provide their specific social order for the employees and the people associated with it.
In comparison to the social change, the social orders follow the specific and positive aspects which are identified as the sharing the expertise views, avoiding the duplication of the services and building the knowledge and the experience. By this, the social orders can be managed in an appropriate direction.
Negative aspect for the human service as social order: After identifying the positive aspects related to the social order in the organization, some of the negative aspects are also identified. These negative aspects mainly define the negative attributes of the social order. Though, the framework is helpful in providing the suitable promotional aspects of the social order, but the negative aspects relates to acceptance by the people who are supposed to accept the orders. The social change can only bring in the society when the specific social orders are mentioned to them. Without a well-defined system, the process cannot be completed (White, 2016).
Apart from this, the tensions and the dilemmas are very common among the employees or the people associated with the organization. The major issues generated are related to the professional roles, suitable quest or the findings, issues related to the management and the leadership. This will create the negative impact while following the aspects related to the social orders.
This is my personal opinion that every aspect possesses the negative as well as the positive areas. Similarly, to succeed in the appropriate manner, the acceptance of the positive aspect is essential.
Conclusion: By assuming the aspects shown in the paragraphs defined above, it is clearly shown that the social change and the social orders are the important aspects to define the human services and the process related to it. Though, the reflected writing mainly supported the social order for the human services, but the aspects also favors that the human services are also defined for bringing the social change. So, it is recommended that to identify the aspects related to the sentence defined, it is essential to follow the suitable evidences and the solution provided.
