Transcript: Detnetion Centres Tony's Story (Vietnamese Refugee) Solutions Tony was born in Can Tho in South Vietnam to a mother who owned a grocery store and a father who was a high school teacher. His father started doing some work for the South Vietnam government and when war broke out and North Vietnam won he was arrested and put into a re-education camp for 2 years. When he was released he decided that they and his family should leave the country and seek refuge in other countries. On their first attempt their boat wrecked on the Vietnam coast, however they managed to escape the second time narrowly missing the boarder police and traveling to Thailand. The spent the night on the shore where they were robbed of their very few possessions, the next day they walked to a small village where police were called and they were taken to a refugee camp. After six months here there were transferred to Bangkok for health checks before being sent to Australia in 1979, Tony was only 10 at this time. Solutions for the refugee problem are greatly debated. Tony Abbot's standpoint is zero tolerance and to send them all back. Kevin Rudd suggests sending them to a different place like PNG. I think that if rocessing could be quicker then many refugees woulld be much happier when they come to Australia. The Journey of a Refugee An Asylum seeker is someone who cannot stay in their own country due to a threat against their life. They have to travel to another country but have not yet been accepted for processing Refugees are asylum seekers who have been accepted to a country for processing but have yet to be accepted into the country Acceptance or Denial What is A Refugee/Assylum Seeker? This is the stage where refugees are accepted for citizenship or is denied and sent back to their country If they areaccepted they are able to find a new life in Australia. They form communities like Cabramatta's Vietnamese community If not they have to return to their country. Often it is not safe for them to return to their country. They face the threat of death and violence. Asylum Seekers come from countries that are war torn and dangerous. They come via plane and boat. Often people who come by boat are considered to be "skipping the queue" The journey for Asylum Seekers is very difficult. They have to face constant threats like pirates and treacherous waves. Many do not survive this stage of the journey. If they do they are often intercepted by the navy and taken to places like Nauru or Christmas Island. A detention centre is a place like Nauru or christmas Island. They are often very bleak and the people in them have all but lost hope. Every year refugees commit suicide in detention centres because they have no knowledge of whether or not they are safe or if they will make it through. Sometimes they have family members waiting for them to be accepted back in their home country so that they can come over The Journey

Transcript: Do state-administered refugee agencies from the five states that received the highest number of refugees in 2012 provide culturally competent services to their refugee clients in accordance with the NASW guidelines? •1950’s:Assimilation- “melting pot concept”- lack of respect for differences • 1960’s-70’s: Cultural, Economic & Political Movements •2000’s:Increase in hate crimes sensitization of social work students to issues of diversity Refugee Presentation Data Collection Methods- Recruitment/Sampling Measurement Agencies assessed based on five categories: • Staff and policy attitudes • Services • Assessment of agency’s relationship with the refugee populations they serve • Culturally-sensitive training • Evaluation Recruiting Strategies Introductory Telephone Calls Mailed Surveys With Cover Letters Mailed Follow-Up Letters and Surveys Implications OUR SAMPLE The 5 State-Administered Refugee Agencies That Received the Largest Number of Refugees in 2012: 1. California - 5,183 refugees 2. Michigan - 3,600 refugees 3. Pennsylvania - 2,813 refugees 4. Georgia - 2,516 refugees 5. Florida - 2,249 refugees (Prah, 2013). What is Cultural Competency? Number of refugees 2011 Lucy Chen Bianca Gras Fedia Louis Danielle Restieaux Research Question Methods- Analysis Background Methods - Recruitment / Sampling As diversity in the populations social workers serve increases, there is a growing need and appreciation for social workers to awareness and deeper understanding of the roles of race/ethnicity, language, gender, sexual orientation and even mental illnesses play in their interactions with clients. Although, the CSWE & NSAW has come mandated standards & with a checklist of cultural competence, there is limited literature on the implementation and application of cultural competence. Our research implicate the need to scientifically measure the implementation of cultural competence within the social work practice. Ultimately, any effect upon culturally aware practice will be determined by the quality of elaboration of the mandated characteristics. There are also several methodological issues, and the checklist list itself might be considered as not encompassing enough. The five general categories might not be sufficient, and the checklist itself doesn't provide any information on reliability. There's no way to way to know if agencies will continue to provide high/low quality services based on their scores from the checklist Agenda • Survey comprised of yes-no questions, Likert scale questions, semantic differential questions, multiple choice questions, open-ended questions • Close-ended questions – Gathers general data about agency • Open-ended questions – Gathers data about agency’s understanding, training, implementations of cultural competency State-Administered Refugee Agency Cultural Competence Checklist Background Research Question Methods -univariate analysis -how data will be coded -include and explain tables (will expand in Prezi)
