Discuss two separate sectors with regard to vulnerable people in Ireland today. With research/empirical evidence exam both areas with reference to their past and present experiences.Choose two theories and explore how they apply to your chosen target groups. Identify therapies, strategies and support systems that would help them and/or where they would need to be referred on, giving reasons and evidence for your answer.
Breakdown of Project
Introduction – give a brief over view of what you are going to cover and why you have chosen your 2 vulnerable groups – link to evidence.Main Body Discuss two separate sectors with regard to vulnerable people in Ireland today – their experiences past and present – linking to empirical evidence. Choose two theories for each group (Family systems theory; developmental theory; stress theory; conflict theory; resilience theory) and explore how they apply to your chosen target groups. Identify therapies, strategies and support systems that would help them –(e.g. Bowen’s Family Therapy; Buckley’s Assessment Framework; Tusla programmes ;etc.) – link to practical and empirical evidence to back up your answer and/or where they would need to be referred on, giving reasons and evidence for your answer – explain what is meant by safeguarding and when this may need to be applied to your groups.Discuss your role as a Social Care worker within both groups At all times keep the 4 learning outcomes in mind and link information to them throughout & to empirical evidence.Conclusion – give a synopsis of your findings
With Regard to Safeguarding or Referring on………….
With reference to theory consider these questions:What are the main issues that present?What indicators cause you concern?Do you think that the person has capacity to make these choices?If you do, why?If not, why not and how have you reached this decision?What other concerns might you have about the situation and how might you address these?Who would you involve?What will you do and why?

The role of the social worker is important to assist as it is important to support the large vulnerable population. As a social worker, the importance is to support the large population that has been feeling vulnerable and it is difficult to resist the large art of the problems. It is also consistently adapted on focusing the increasing degradation along with feeling the problem of distress which has been exclusively been part of the large sectors that have exclusively been served the client population (Clayton, 2019). The meaning of the social work values has to examine the problems and identify ways to solve the problems, along with how one can progress to solve the problems, that would equally be effective to enhance well-being and it would be important to adopt a best human rights practices and also involve a social justice, empowerment that would bring a better ways for the social changes and having the liberation. The social values that would involve and also be involved as the word 'values' differ that would be identical in forming a way of talking about personal values along with the attributes of the professional values. To note how there would be a personal value that would be a set of principles that would exclusively be supported by the people's actions or behaviors. As a social worker, one has to define as per the professional values that would be exclusive to focus over the Code of Practice for which the social care workers must adhere to. The role of the social worker is prominent and has to focus on the personal values that would not interfere with professional values.
The role of a social worker is crucial and focused on the ways to shield vulnerable people along with forming a special bond and also develop relationships that would be important to guide and also help in forming the relationship together (Clayton, 2019). It is also important to take constructive steps that would be possible to help families that could stick and be able to survive their toughest times. As a social worker, has to understand the problems and to support people it would be important to form, a better way to live a happy life (Clayton, 2019). The role of the social workers is to work collaboratively and also aim for the multi-disciplinary teams which would be helpful in terms of the professions that would involve the education, includes the health and probation services. The social worker would have to take effective steps for the collaboration and the ways to identify a milestone to support the major contribution and as a result, it would be an effective way to service users' life that would be beneficial for the long term perspective. It is also important for the ways to identify what would be constructive in terms of the effective ways to support the service users' life if at all it has been needed. It is also helpful to cause and also be curtained in terms of the required helpfulness needed. As social workers would be supportive, it would be beneficial for the social workers to work to collaborate and work for the different organizations. The social workers have to think aligned with the local authorities to support the large vulnerable population.
Here the term "vulnerable population" is defined concerning healthcare, includes the social services, part of the counseling, and psychological research, that can help define the population's lives. It is important to elate with the vulnerable population complexities which are the abidance by the government programs and how to provide quick assistance (Clayton, 2019). It is also how the vulnerable populations would be assisted through the support system of the social work profession that can refer to the servicing the individuals and at the same time, it would be helpful in terms of offered services to the specific individuals, but at the same time, it can be beneficial for the ethical protocols.
Ireland's homeless population has been facing a large part of the problems and challenges that are largely be focused over the categorized as "vulnerable populations". At the same time, it is also important to focus on the ability to make informed decisions and at the same time, it would be beneficial in terms of participating in research. Another fact that can be identical would be how to make the prisoners relate with the ways of participation in unethical medical or psychological research. Homeless men and women have also to face unethical practices.
The Ireland homeless population is one of the vulnerable population, that has remotely been faced on account of the mobile, invisible, and it would be also the research perspective, that would make it a difficult to identify” (Clayton, 2019). The homelessness Ireland population has to also face a very difficult time to make an exact estimate as per the governing that would not have to face an “out of home’, that would be subjective of the given time. It is also how to make a constructive approach towards a data availability of the hidden homeless, and it would also be making in terms of the prisons, includes the adaptability and also an edge in terms of the children which would be care to use it as per the state of mental health institutions, and would also be constructive in terms of the greater risk of homelessness.
The homelessness population has to face a problem of the ever-growing problems within Ireland (Clayton, 2019). Due to the part of the homelessness population, there has to be an extent of the support, such as observed, stands at 10,264 people in 2019, in comparison to the past figures of 2010, which stands at only 2,900 persons. It has been largely due to the ever-growing problems, that have to be faced on account of the migrants, low employment rates, low stability factors and also the phenomenal factors. It is also largely due to the country experiencing an unstable level of GNP growth at a rate of 7-8 percent, and there has been a significantly low level of unemployment to 4 percent in 2016. It has been largely due to the failure to reduce a significant part of the homeless people and at the same time, it would be a growing, problem to make them adaptable.
Another way to identify the problems is largely due to the persistent inequalities that have been observed that have been a significantly growing number (Clayton, 2019). It would be inclusive in terms of the visible homeless which would be helpful in terms of the 15 percent increase that would be also vicious cycle problems, which would include poverty and deprivation. It is also how to face in terms of the root causes of homelessness is that would be growing numbers that would be substantially sleeping rough.
The problems of the homeless problem the problem of the social worker has to face in terms of the isolation that would be governing the current housing policy. It is also one of the “homelessness that would be faced in link to the housing policy, that would also be devoted in terms of the housing that would be central that can be a successful strategy that would be on account of the homelessness”. It is also important to form how there affordable accommodation that would be resulted due to the failure of housing policy that can be adjusted in terms of the recent economic and social changes. The social need would be part of the substance due to the 48,413 households, that have been facing the households living that would be attributed to the unsuitable or unfit local authority housing that would be increasing at the 56,000 households.
Ireland has to face a vast problem in terms of the experience of elder abuse that has to work over it. There has also been a large relationship, which has been significant in terms of building and associating with building a concrete relationship in terms of defining a vulnerable that would equally be a constructive part.
The elder abuse is also one of the cause and the factors which have prominently been viewed as the single or repeated act, due to which there has been an occurring in any sort of the relationship which would prominently cause any harm or distress. For any older person and violates, that would be formed due to human or civil rights. The social worker has to work over the various factors which are emotional, physical and psychological.
In less clinical terms we are discussing bullying, intimidation, grievous bodily harm, rape and fraud (Fazel, 2015). All are crimes that older Irish people have suffered at the hands of abusers in the last 12 months.
A particular area of concern, in light of Ireland’s economic circumstances, is financial abuse, the most common type reported to Senior Help Line, a confidential listening service managed by older people for older people.
Typically, an older person may experience pressure to sign over the family farm, property or assets to relatives. Abusers are rarely strangers. In many cases, they are the adult children of the victim. Research shows this to be the case in 80 percent of reported cases.
Financial constraints have put families under pressure to maintain a decent standard of living. This has resulted in an increasing number of older people that have been predominately been part of the misled over money and at the same time, would be provided with the under improper pressure that could support their adult children financially and also be important to take care of themselves. The role of the social workers is to ensure they are working collectively towards the identified elders and the related abuse stories, which would be important in overcoming the challenges.
Two theories for each group
To address the problems of the Homeless Vulnerable population, the applied below two theories are the
The theory is related to the developmental perspective that contributes to how one can be given human behavior. As it is important to note, how the idea of the vulnerable population unfolds across the life course, it is also important how to change the people that would be helpful, in overcoming the same over time. As the social worker, have to ensure, they are serving the large part of the vulnerable population, they have to also step up and create a better environment, towards the human development that would nurture the stages depending on the complex interaction of biological, psychological along with the cause of the social processes. At every stage, it is also governing to match with the new involved tasks that would be bringing consequent changes in social roles along withholding concerning the statuses.
The developmental vulnerable would be based on the Life span/life cycle theory:
For the vulnerable affected life course perspective would be focused on the sociology:
Vulnerable population in the conflict perspective that would be sources of conflict and that would be based on human behavior. It would be economic along with the political arenas, that would be based on the cultural arena.
It is also one of the governing primary goals that would be based on the field Education that would be helpful for the vulnerable homelessness, it would be based on the theoretical perspectives that would be related to the caseload, organization, along with the communities. Examples would include:
To address the problems of the elder abuse Vulnerable population, the applied below two theories are the
The social constructionist to be focused over how people learn, that would be focused over interactions with each other and at the same time, it would be related to the classified as per the governing places in it. Another factual would be how it would help the elder abuse population to tackle and at the same time, would be helpful in that would be helpful in social beings. It is also how the social well beings can connect with interaction with each other along withholding it as per the physical world that could be governed with the social well beings that would be shared understandings. It is also how would be governing per the social interaction, that could be related to the shape of the understanding that would be based on social interactions.
The vulnerable theory would be focused on the rational choice perspective that can focus on the human behavior that would consider the self-interest along with having rational choices. It is also how one can find effective ways to accomplish goals (Rogers 2017). The choice of Human interaction would be based on the exchange of resources, along with people would be aligned to make it as per the judgments that could be related to the fairness of change.
It is also one of the causes of Bowen's Family Therapy that would be focused and it would relate to the problem a client that can be a symptom of dysfunction. It is also one of the entire family, that could be based on the individual that would be based on his/her family relationships. It would be based as per the individual along with the focus on the faulty that would be based on the constant interaction (Rosen, 2017).
The homelessness has to be the focus of the family counselors that would be based on the entire system. A system that would be making the age homelessness people as a whole to make it a mark as per the sum of its parts, for which the social worker, have to provide living assistance to each other. Family therapy also focuses on the family that would be based on the living system and it would be a member that would be based on the family system. The social worker would have family therapy that would be defined in terms of the different approaches contributed in terms of the social workers (Sapthiang, 2019). The family theory that would be based on the human relationships that would be focused on the two counterbalancing forces and an individual would be based on the togetherness. It would also be a contrasting needs that would be related to companionship and independence. It is also how their would-be opposing forces that would relate to the patterns of closeness which would be distancing focus over the people’s lives. The relation to the degree of success would be dependent on these two forces that would help define the ‘differentiation of self’.
The theories would be following the below traits-:
1. Differentiation of Self-It would be an ability that would give separate feelings along with holding the thoughts. It would also be on the account to undifferentiated people which would not be feelings and thoughts and it would also be based on the separating and I would be based on the feelings. It would be helpful in a family that can note how it would help define the issues, and how it would be helpful to see the feel about people. It would also be attributed to how one could relate and interpret their experiences. The differentiation would be the defined process of freeing oneself and how it would be giving concerning the family’s emotional
2. Triangles- The relationship would be developed through the process of the vacillation and also being with the closeness and distance. This would also be distressed and at the same time, it would how the theory would be applicable concerning the feeling of intense emotions, that would be helpful to create a triangulate that can be created as the tension between them.
3. The Nuclear Family Emotional Processes-The theory would be applicable based on the patterns that can also be governed with the generations. It would also be attributed to the related aspects that can be creating an emotional view of the world.
To given and also have a significant response that would be integral would be related to the local level, and it would be giving in terms of the mechanisms that would be based on a national level
• It would be based on the print media (Van Gordon, 2019)

As a social worker, has to understand the problems and to support people it would b important to forms, a better way to live a happy life (Williams, 2016).
The social values that would involve and also be involved as the word 'values' differ that would be identical in forming a way of talking about personal values along with the attributes of the professional values. To note how there would be a personal value that would be a set of principles that would exclusively be supported by the people's actions or behaviors (Williams, 2016). As a social worker, one has to define as per the professional values that would be exclusive to focus over the Code of Practice for which the social care workers must adhere to. The role of the social worker is prominent and has to focus on the personal values that would not interfere with professional values.
