Abstract

With the transition of political, economic and social scenario in Bhutan, the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have been expanding over the years. Bhutan has more than forty registered CSOs and the numbers are still growing. However, paucity of trained social workers in Bhutan has compelled the CSOs to recruit employees with varying degrees. To mitigate this, Samtse College of Education (SCE) of the Royal University of Bhutan (RUB) launched Bhutan’s first ever certificate course in social work. So far, two cohorts of participants have been trained. This study was designed to understand the efficacy of Bhutan’s first ever certificate course in social work from the vantage point of the participants. It adopted a convergent parallel mixed method design, primarily employing questionnaires and semi-structured individual interviews. The study found the certificate course to be highly effective in enhancing the professional competence of the social workers in Bhutan. It is believed to have been an “eye-opening experience” for most social workers who ventured into this profession, without relevant training. The study recommends SCE and RUB to provide similar certificate courses to the thousands to untrained social workers in Bhutan.

Abstract

The COVID-19 has caused challenges at all levels of society. It is necessary to, while carefully looking at impact that COVID-19 will have on children's health and well-being, and to steadily implement social work services accordingly. This paper highlights some key challenges and concerns for health and well-being on children and adolescents in Japan during COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of this paper is to consider how the COVID-19 pandemic and the policy taken to mitigating the risk of COVID-19 have impacted children in Japan. In conclusion, we are not saying that COVID-19 policy responses such as school closures overall are ineffective for mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic in Japan. However, as we have seen, school closing policy is likely to have a negative impact on children’s health and well-being such as increased risks of mental health, abuse and suicide. The important point is that these impacts is not the impact of COVID-19 but the impact of the policy responses to COVID-19. The policy responses are likely to lead to a range of unexpected impacts and results. Therefore, policy makers, social workers and other professionals always should consider for the impact of policy responses to COVID-19 on children and adolescents.

Abstract

In Malaysia, one of the most worrying issues for the community, especially parents is the case of unmarried pregnant among adolescents. However, few parents and members of the community are truly sensitive to the threat of this social problem. Various efforts are being made by the government and non-government agencies to help these adolescents to reduce the problem. One of them is to create temporary shelters to guide and help the adolescents to move forward with their lives towards a more positive path. Nevertheless, these efforts can either have a positive or negative impact on the adolescents involved if the shelters are not properly managed. This qualitative study was conducted to explore aspects of management in a shelter set up specifically for unmarried pregnant adolescents. The results of the interviews with the shelter operator were transcribed fully before being analyzed thematically. The results of the study found that the nature of wanting to help and high perseverance had prompted the operator to set up a shelter specifically for unmarried pregnant adolescents. The shelter was found to gain strong social support. Among the support provided is from individuals or groups which include free academic teaching, food supply, daily necessities, finance for utilities, in addition to the creation of a comfortable physical environment. The operator also used social networks such as close friends to help manage the residents at the shelter. In addition, social media was also utilized by the operator so that many individuals provide assistance to maintain the management of the shelter. This study contributes to the management of shelter for adolescent girls especially unmarried pregnant adolescents.
