What Social Workers are doing now are: people centered activities appropriate services/technologies give new options to clients that they once did not have Social Work Interview/Presentation Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) For those who have behavior or communication problems: coloring to create an island where the social worker is able to see who is in the island, and the ones not included in the island like parents or siblings lets her know there must be a conflict with the people or persons who are left out Historical/Contemporary Views: For those with trauma or social economic stress: self-reliant development with natural resource share the burden through games or just simple communication with the social worker gets rewarded in the end In the past, this issue has been viewed as a "multi-dimensional process involving reorganization and reorientation of entire economic and social system" What has been done about this problem is the improvement of quality of all human lives through: helping raise people's living levels (help with income, services, educating them with the right knowledge) promoting human dignity through the growth of people's self-esteem conducted through conducive conditions giving people many choices of goods and services to increase their freedom (University of Kentucky) Contemporary View: Definitions of this problem: So they can address the gaps in services Fight for social justice issues So individuals or families can restore their capabilities to function in society and therefore accomplish essential life tasks and goals corruption of environment if someone feels as they have no choice but to do so in order to survive psychological illnesses due to chemical changes in the brain the children being at fault for the disorders they come with parent not having enough skills to guide their children in the right direction which causes communication issues and leads to sexual abuses occurring if it is not prevented Find community resources, to collaborate with primary care doctors, schools, or providers to better asses the client and his/her need, to make phone calls to families, and to be available at all times through a pager.

Simple tasks such as putting a shirt on can lead to him being pushed over the edge and causing a blow out in his behavior. Another problem that he struggles with is communication. He signs very limited and uses more of his own language which consists of speaking in vowels and can make the sounds of some letter of the alphabet. This can be difficult for many people whom maybe unfamiliar with him. This also can lead to cause some trouble with his anxiety.
