The macro system is the culture of an individual and relates to a person surroundings. In this paper will discuss the concepts of personal, interpersonal, and political empowerment, the way individuals are involved in multiple social systems. I will also discussing the macro systems response to child maltreatment sexual abuse and delinquency and compare and contrast the application of functionalism and interactionist theory to poverty. Lastly, I will discuss the role and responsibility of the human service worker in the macro environment.

Personal empowerment can be defined as the power within a person. It consequences in self-confidence, which means an individual is assuming his or her responsibilities; you have enough confidence to make decisions, and you realizes that you are in a position to change. The change could be anything, it could be to seek career advancement, work on a failing relationship or to become a better parent. Personal empowerment gives a person a better sense of responsibility and holds ourselves more accountable for the things we do. It is meant to make us better individuals.

Interpersonal empowerment is when a organization or a person work together to meet their targets. The combined power of the group will help all of the members to achieve their goals. Each member will contribute, understand, and support their other group members to increase their collective empowerment. Empowerment can be improved by working as one unit with other peoples of the group but not for the peoples of the community. Another meaning of interpersonal empowerment is to share authority within the group or community.

Political empowerment is to know about what is going on in the world around you.
Political empowerment starts with each and every one of us. “It is the sincere desire and energy to…...

...economics in the modern world. The objectives were clearly outlined in the syllabus which Dr. Lin provided to Team A. Differentiate between Macroeconomics and Microeconomics The first objective we discussed was the difference between Macro and Micro economics. Since both studies deal with the economic decision making process, the one aspect which separates them would be that Microeconomics is the study of economics from the view point of a firm or individuals. Macroeconomics is the study of economics from the view point of a society or nation. This aspect would study the budget or a government or GDP of a nation. Supply and Demand The second area which we discussed was the effects of supply and demand. It was nice to get a better idea on how the costs of goods are affected by the amount of goods available for distribution at any given period. By studying the buying trends of individuals, companies are able to control the price and the supply of goods for consumers. If a company wishes to charge an outrages price for a product and have consumers pay the amount, they simply produce a low quantity of the product. A good example of this would be the way Sony released the new Playstation 3 (PS3). When the PS3 system first came into production, Sony purposely kept the number produced under 1000 units nationwide. By hyping up the unit through marketing, the demand was very high upon its release. By creating frenzy for the product, Sony was able to......

Bshs 325 Week 4 Macro System

...Macro Systems The concept of personal empowerment is drawn within each individual. Personal empowerment is the ability to have influence on events and those individuals who surround themselves at an intimate level. It is a place in time when an individual knows and understands his or her goal and where they are headed. It is also when an individual that they are ready for change. An example of personal empowerment is a wife and mother who have decided that a change is necessary for her and children and makes the necessary steps to leave her abusive husband who has physically and verbally and abused herself and children. At this point of time the wife has determined that positive change is in order for the safety of her and her children. As it relates to interpersonal empowerment is when one or more persons collaborate to make decisions to follow through with a plan. Last, political empowerment is the government working to help the community and promoting political participation on specific issues for the community population (Zastrow & Krist-Ashman, 2010). Social work is viewed in three categories: macro, mezzo, and micro. These three categories at times have a tendency to coincide and influence each other. The practice of macro social work is the effort to help clients by intervening in a larger system, such as at the neighborhood, institution, or at a smaller group level (Zastrow & Krist-Ashman, 2010). Macro practice empowers clients by involving them in systematic......

I will explain what a closed system and open system is and provide examples for the both. Next, I will discuss the inner and outer flows of both systems. Then I will define the leakage and injections in an open system. Lastly, I will provide personal examples of the leakage and injection and describe and explain them both. Following the end of this paper, the reader should have a better understanding of and open and closed flows in the macro-economy. Macro Economy Systems It is very imperative that one understands the flows in the macro-economy. There are two flows: an open and a closed flow. In this paper I will be discussing and explain the two types of flows and how they affect the business world. By having this valuable information, consumers will now be aware of how their money is affecting the economic system in a certain way. Closed System A closed system is an economic system model that counts only domestic exchanges but not the foreign agents . This means that in a closed system, the money is built up inside a circular flow. In a closed system, there aren’t any leaks because there aren’t any foreign agents, governments, investments, or system of savings. Also there are not taxes, savings, or extra expenses that aren’t generated back into the economy. An example of a......

Macro Systems Paper

...Macro Systems Paper There are a lot of different areas that affect us as individuals, communities, and as families. There are expectations on how people believe things should be. As a human service professional it is important to understand the different areas of social systems and what roles we as professionals and the other things that will play a part in these areas. Throughout this paper we will discuss personal, interpersonal, and political empowerment, macro systems, individual involvement with the different social systems, and poverty. According to Lippincott and Wilkins, Inc. (2007), “The term empowerment has different meanings in different sociocultural and political contexts. Broadly speaking, empowerment refers to the expansion of assets and capabilities of poor people to participate in, negotiate with, influence, control, and hold accountable institutions that affect people’s lives.” (p. 120). With there being so many different definition’s and understandings of empowerment, we are only going to review three areas, personal, interpersonal, and political empowerment. Personal empowerment is something we all have experienced at a few different times in our lives. This is when an individual decides to make a positive improvement in their lives or within their community or neighborhood. They stand up for what they believe is right and worth fixing or fighting for, maybe not just for themselves, but for others. At an intimate level we may decide to change......

...Macro Systems Paper Amanda Swift BSHS 325 November 10, 2014 Johnetta Barnes Macro Systems Paper Empowerment understands your own strengths and resources available to you in order to solve your own problems. Empowerment has several dimensions including personal, interpersonal, and political understanding. Personal empowerment comes from within the self. It is closely related to self-worth. The idea of empowerment can push a person towards their personal goals. Interpersonal empowerment is more than one person working toward a goal. These people collectively contribute the strengths and knowledge to reach the goal. Lastly, political empowerment is government working to help communities by providing strategies for success on specific issues. It often includes funding and services provided by social work teams. Social work is defined as the work carried out by trained personnel with the aim of alleviating certain conditions of those in need. Social work, at its core, is divided into subcategories; micro, mezzo, and macro. The micro system refers to the individual and their specific needs, problems, and strengths. Micro systems focus on how the individual might address issues, generate solutions, and make the best effective choices (Zastrow, 2009). Micro systems look at different ways to enhance a person’s functioning in society. These include physical and psychological issues. In contrast to the micro system, the mezzo system consists of small groups. Families, work ties...

...Macro Systems Holly Regan BSHS/325 February 16, 2015 Mary Carlisle Macro Systems What are systems in the social environment? Systems are a set of elements that are interrelated to make a functioning whole. Systems larger than a small group denotes a macro system which involves focusing on the social, political, and economic policies and conditions that affect people’s overall access to resources and quality of life. Macro practice in social work, then, consists of striving to improve the social and economic circumstance in which people live (Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman, 2010). Empowerment is a process used to assist individuals, families, groups and communities to use their strengths to overcome the challenges they presently face by implementing resources and tools around them. Personal empowerment is in reference to an individual’s competence and strength and ability to create change and focuses on ways to develop personal power and self-efficacy. It also points toward a biased state of mind, a feeling of competence within oneself, and experiencing a sense of control. Interpersonal empowerment refers to one’s ability to influence others and is derived from two sources. The first source is based on social status such as class, sex, and gender and the second source is power which comes from learning new skills and securing new positions in addition to successful interactions with others and the respect others have for us. Political empowerment is in......

...Bullying Report Magon Tanner BSHS/325 March 9, 2015 Melissa Russiano Bullying Report What is bullying? Bullying is about control and abuse. When you bully someone you really hurt them emotionally and sometime physically. Bullying is something that happens all the time with children and it's something that should not be taken lightly. Bullying can hurt people socially and sometimes lead to death. Children and adolescents who are bullied are at more of a risk for mental health problems. The mental health problems could include depression, anxiety, headaches, and problems adjusting to school. Bullying can also cause long-term damage to a child's self-esteem. Children and adolescents who are bullies are at a higher risk for substance use, academic problems, and violence to others later in life. Children or adolescents who are bullies and victims suffer the most serious effects of bullying and are at greater risk for mental and behavioral problems than those who are only bullied or who are only bullies. Those who bully others and those who are bullied are at higher risk for depression, NICHD research studies show. There are three components of bullying. One is power imbalance. When there is an imbalance of power, it is hard for the target to defend him or herself against bully's attacks. The difference in imbalance can be physical or psychological. For example in cases of physical imbalance the bully might be larger or stronger, older, or there may......

As well as the macro system in response to child maltreatment, sexual abuse, crime and delinquency. The paper will also compare and contrast the functionalism and interactionist theory to poverty. Lastly, the role and responsibility of the human service worker in the macro environment will be discussed. Personal, Interpersonal, and Political Empowerment “…Personal, interpersonal, and political power enables individuals to gain greater control over their environments and attain their aspirations to enable them to gain greater control over their environments and attain their aspirations” (Gutierrez & Lewis, 1999). The concept of personal empowerment comes within you. It is self-reliance and making your own decisions, following responsibilities. You understand and know where you are headed. It is coming to the realization that something must change. An example of personal empowerment is a wife leaving her abusive husband because she is tired of being abused. She has come to the realization that something must be changed. Interpersonal......

...Part B Question 1 Figure 1 The circular flow of income (Figure 1) shows connections between different sectors of our economic system. It revolves around flows of goods and services and factors of production between firms and households. Businesses produce goods and services and in the process of doing so, incomes are generated for factors of production such as wages and salaries going to people in work. Injections: The three injections -- investment, government purchases and export. These injection expenditures, like consumption, are used to purchase aggregate production through the product markets. Most importantly, injections add to the total volume of the basic circular flow. That is, they "inject" revenue into the product markets that is used for factor payments and becomes household income. Withdrawals are increases in savings, taxes or imports so reducing the circular flow of income and leading to a multiplied contraction of production (output). (1) Investment (I), Capital spending by firms - e.g. on new technology (2) Government (G), Government expenditure - e.g. on the NHS or defense (3) Export (X), e.g. Overseas consumers buying goods and service Leakages: The three leakages -- saving, taxes, and imports. These leakages, like consumption, are how the household sector divides up or uses its income. Most importantly, leakages subtract from the total volume of the basic circular flow. That is, they "leak" income away from the product markets,......
