Abstract

The current study aimed to explore Chinese undergraduate students’ perceptions of intimate parent-child interactions (IPCI) and intra-familial Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) as well. 354 undergraduate students from 15 universities or colleges in Beijing were recruited to participate in an online-based survey. Results indicated that IPCI such as co-bathing and co-sleeping were very common among Chinese undergraduate students during childhood. Factors including the child’s age and gender, as well as the parent’s gender involved in IPCI were found to impact respondents’ perceptions of the appropriateness of those interactions. Moreover, respondents’ perceptions of the appropriateness of parent-child intimate interactions might also be influenced by their childhood experiences of parental interactions and their perceptions of intra-familial CSA. The study suggested that distinguishing intra-familial CSA from normative IPCI will continue to be contested and culturally shaped. Comprehensive information and public education about intra-familial CSA are needed for the prevention of CSA in Chinese society.

Abstract

Ethical practice is fundamental to any practiced based profession including social work. The social work profession is a diverse one with a mission to promote wellbeing and quality of life for vulnerable people. Despite serving the society it’s also central to promoting social work Ethics to maintain the professional standards and lessen the ethical issues and dilemma’s faced in day today practice. Ethics are really important to any profession, yet a necessity for those rooted in and human services. In the Sri Lankan context, it is disheartening to see how social workers have lost their professional identity with the absence of a professional code of ethics in place. A qualitative research approach was followed to explore and describe the key ethical challenges faced by the social workers in Sri Lanka. Survey method, in-depth interviews and key informants interviews were utilized and analyzed based on purposive sampling method. The data were categorized based on different themes. The finding proves that there is no proper guideline to be followed for the practitioners, particularly in situations of ethical dilemmas and conflicts. Most of the Human Service Organizations have their own set of rules with lesser focus on the code of ethical conduct. The unethical practice unintentionally promotes the malpractice leading to scenarios where organizational set of rules violates the client’s self determination and confidentiality. Although most of the upcoming social work graduates are made aware of the importance of maintaining an ethical conduct, when they join the work force as social workers they face many constraints due to absence of a formal code of ethics. This has resulted most of the social workers not having any obligations to continue an ethical practice hence their practice is inevitably not much embedded in ethics. Thus the study provides an outlook on the ethical challenges faced by the social workers specially working in different sectors in Sri Lanka.

Abstract

This research aimed to find out the healthy and hygienic behavior at the Lebong County Bengkulu Province regarding on external and internal environment, objective judgment, baby delivery, breastfeeding, toilet, and the domestic non-smoking prohibition. The qualitative approach was used with subjects of the research were 16 housewives, with purposive sampling method applied, and 15 key informants who hold either formal or non-formal authority in the society. The data were obtained through in-depth interviews, observations and documentations. The results showed that the social reality in terms of baby delivery stemmed both from primary socialization (family: grandmother, mother and mother in law) and secondary socialization (internalization or education) that had become a tradition from one generation to the next generation. Another interesting fact is that a great number of mothers do not breastfeed their baby. Instead, they started to give supplements food to their 3-and-4- month old babies, such as water and honey, water and sugar, or rice porridge with coconut sugar. The community also seemed to be unfamiliar with the concept of healthy toilet as they fulfill the call of Mother Nature in random places, such as in the river, behind the trees, or in the sewer. Furthermore, it is not an easy task to have a non-smoking prohibition in every single family since smoking has become an externalized habit and a symbol of masculinity. The researcher concluded that the healthy and hygienic behavior was heavily influenced by a stock of knowledge derived either from the primary source (family) or from the secondary source (significant influence from key figures or education). Other factors that also had a great influence upon the implementation of the healthy and hygienic behavior in the society were poverty, distance and location, healthy facilities, and communal habits.

This article discusses the Social Workers who work in the field of Child Protection, especially those who handle cases of child victims of sexual violence. In many cases, both victims and perpetrators need serious handling in order not to cause further problems. Social workers role are very important in restoring the trauma of children as victims, and addressing children's issues as behaviors including intervening with their families and the environment. During the practice of his profession, it can cause emotional reactions to the child's behavior, such as shock, trust and distrust because the child's sexual experience exceeds his or her age. In addition it can experience burnout, which can affect the practice of his profession. The condition can not be seen as the inability to run the profession, but rather as a challenge for the Social Worker, to improve his professional skills. This paper attempts to provide an alternative solution to minimize the emotional reactions in dealing with cases of Child Sexual Abuse, through a victim-centered approach with the best interests of the child, as a way of resolving conflict in intervention.
