From social policy to social work : the antecedents and origins of mental health social work in Western Australia by Marcia Catherine Foley( Book )

[Truncated abstract] This thesis offers an account of the development of social work in Mental Health Services (MHS) in Western Australia (WA). It provides an overview of developments overseas prior to the European settlements in Australia, and suggests new ways of examining issues which affected the implementation and treatment of mental illness. I argue that, although social workers were employed as early as 1959, the formalisation of mental health social work as a professional service in WA occurred around 1968 following the adoption of a policy of deinstitutionalisation of psychiatric hospitals. The thesis explores the way in which social work, which formerly had been dominated by a medical ideology, responded to the challenges provided by the new policies. In order to identify social work within the network of political and social changes I integrate significant bodies of knowledge in the fields of medicine, sociology and economics in particular the way gender and power impacted on the development of social work services in this country. The methodology is qualitative and is multimethod and multi-perspective revolving around the use of history, particularly of oral history. The research identifies three historical periods of social work development in the Mental Health Services of Western Australia, each initiated by a political decision. The first commences in 1959 when the government decided to employ a qualified social worker to assist the attendance of psychiatric patients at a day hospital, and established the secondary nature of social work's position in relation to psychiatry. The second starts in 1973 when a government policy of funding community programmes provided a 'Honeymoon period' enabling the coordination and expansion of social work activities to occur, and its recognition as an independent profession in the MHS. The final period begins in 1984 when, following the amalgamation of all health and mental health services in WA, social work services did a 'Humpty Dumpty' as the impact of neo-liberal privatisation policies ousted them from their elevated position in the professional hierarchy, and confronted the profession with unprecedented challenges
Pergaulan bebas and gendered youth culture in Yogyakarta, Indonesia by Tracy Wright Webster( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[Truncated abstract] In contemporary Indonesia there is a moral panic about the behaviour of young people. This moral panic identifies the issue as one of pergaulan bebas (literally, free socialising). Pergaulan bebas is also the issue of greatest concern to Indonesian youth. It can be defined as social interactions and behaviours deemed outside of the norms of society or free of rules . Pergaulan bebas is a negative, condemnatory discourse, used to express disapproval of a range of behaviours carried out by young people. Behaviours considered pergaulan bebas include premarital sex, alcohol and drug consumption, clubbing, consumption of pornography and cybersex, smoking, going out at night and gang fighting. Since many of these behaviours, in particular premarital sex, alcohol use, smoking and going out at night, are condoned for male youth, the discourse of pergaulan bebas settles most heavily on young women. This discourse reinforces existing socio-sexual and spatial taboos for female bodies in new and arguably sinister ways. This is particularly so in the context of dramatic global technological and market changes. As a social discourse played out on ever-younger gendered, sexed bodies, the discourse of pergaulan bebas requires negotiation by youth, whether or not they practise the behaviours implied in pergaulan bebas, for all youth are constructed as at risk . Since the demise of the New Order in 1998, the Indonesian nation-state has been experiencing an existential crisis. The crisis represents conflict, contestation and redefinition of the notion of Indonesian culture. Youth are at the centre of this conflict, as market liberalisation and Islamisation have brought about rapid socio-cultural change and a heightened sense of moral panic. In Java, where the social principle of rukun (social harmony) underpins social interactions, rukun at the level of the nation and in its nucleus, the family is perceived as under threat by youth who engage in pergaulan bebas. This dissertation deconstructs the binary that privileges prescriptive, idealised, gendered social norms for youthful bodies, over those practices considered to breach them. It demonstrates the contestation of the hegemony of this binary in mainstream youth pop cultural forms and social worlds. It is set in the city of Yogyakarta, amidst public debate over recently introduced anti-pornography laws and a yearning among youth to experience the possibilities that a cosmopolitan lifestyle offers in the twenty-first century
The authority of practical knowledge by Ryan Douglas Cox( Book )

[Truncated abstract] It is a commonplace that we often reason from the fact that an agent did not know she was doing something to the conclusion that they did not do that thing intentionally. In his account of intentional action, Aristotle raised this commonplace to the level of philosophical theory, making it part of the definition of intentional action, claiming that if an agent does not know what she is doing she cannot be doing that thing intentionally. It is widely believed that Aristotle was wrong about this, but the intuition that there is an important connection between what an agent knows or believes when she acts and the question of whether she acts intentionally remains. In this thesis I attempt to uncover the truth behind this intuition and provide an adequate account of the relation between intentional action and an agent's knowledge of what she is doing. Arriving at an adequate account will involve learning from the mistakes of previous attempts. Thus, in Chapter 1 I examine Aristotle's claim that if an agent does not know what she is doing she cannot be doing that thing intentionally. I argue that there is an inherent tension in Aristotle's account of intentional action between his commitment to this claim about the agent's knowledge and his commitment to a particular account of the causal-psychological antecedents of intentional action. Since many contemporary accounts of intentional action share this Aristotelian assumption about the casual-psychological antecedents of action, we should expect to find that these accounts face similar difficulties in accommodating similar claims about the connection between intentional action and an agent's knowledge of what she is doing. In Chapter 2 I examine Elizabeth Anscombe's claim that an action is not intentional if an agent gives the answer 'I was not aware I was doing that' or 'I was aware I was doing that but only because I observed it' in response to the question 'Why?'. I argue that Anscombe has been largely misunderstood in the contemporary debate. In response to this misunderstanding, I develop an interpretation of Anscombe's account of practical knowledge by paying close attention to her discussion of practical reasoning in the second half of her influential work Intention and connecting this to her earlier discussion of the question 'Why?'. Many of Anscombe's insights are taken up in the account of our ability to know what we are doing without observation that I offer in Chapter 4

How do rural and remote practitioners understand and interpret their practice within the Western Australian CAMHS sector? by Anthony Lyndon Collier( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is the first study into rural and remote Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in Western Australia and begins to investigate why after almost two decades of planning there are examples of rural and remote regions having minimal or no specialist child and adolescent mental health services locally available. Why this situation occurs is unknown. The study begins to investigate this situation using as its starting point a clear recognition of the impOliance and value of the staff who live and work in this sector. The experience of nine practitioners who make up 25 per cent of the clinical workforce of rural and remote CAMHS in Western Australia are investigated to provide insights about the essential issues that contribute to the collective nature oftheir practice. Four emergent themes are found: The first two relate to significant contextual factors of the influence of the rural or remote environment, and the influence of the contemporary West Australian Health Service organisational environment on their work. Two further themes which peliain to the influence of these major practice contexts on worker identity and the impact on worker wellbeing then become evident. The study is unique as it utilises and adapts the Practice Domains Framework of Cheers, Darracott and Lonne as part of the methodology to examine and describe the collective practice experience of these workers. The central finding is a fundamental discontinuity between workers' experience of their practice and the organisational structure that they work within. Findings indicate both positive influences related to the satisfaction they gain from working with children and their local community and also the negative influence of practicing within a workplace culture which is perceived to place a very high value on regulations and administrative demands. Together these findings contribute to understandings of service sustainability within this sector and have implications for rural and remote health care provision
