I chose my wife Bella as my participant for this assignment it was interesting to see her views as she experiences different cultures working in a hospital. I also did a table myself and found our table answers to be quite similar in that we both seemed to list a lot of the descriptors concerning women in the same category. I feel the media played a role in my perception views of Muslim women, I haven’t known very many Arab or Muslim women but what I would hear is that they were oppressed and denied human rights. We both shared the same views on the table such as Christian Americans as good neighbors, family orientated, well educated, peaceable, socially compliant, open to both sexes, strict moral values, patriarchal society, moderate political values, conservative political values, view women as homemakers and are a law abiding group. And shared the same views on Muslim Arab American groups are seen as oppressive to women, undereducated, violent, governed by the Qur’an. I believe it to be false that Muslim Americans and Arabs are violent people and sexist, I believe that they are peaceful people from the ones I encountered. But to contrary belief I am not certain that the average American would think that way in light of the events occurred on September 11, 2001. The sexist views come from the idea that the average American may be under the impression that Muslims and Arabs dominate the women in their families and take wives left and right. When in reality they have followed American laws when it concerns marriage and family in this country.
I think that the perception of the average American in each group comes down…
and disorder evolved into something that can be considered as a ‘moral panic’, a term coined by sociologist Stanley Cohen (1973, p. 9). This moral panic is a collective of behaviour, people or condition that is viewed as a direct threat to society. Note that Hall et al. see society or the British State as the most powerful and influential group with its interests held in common by those living in it. Using the springboard of moral panics, Cohen’s (1972) work brought to prominence concepts such as…

•How consistent is the theory with social work values and ethics?
1. Ecosystem perspectives are consistent with social work values and ethics and accordingly serve as the organizing framework for a number of human behavior textbooks (Van Wormer, 2011, p.39).

The Stranger – Albert Camus
Values & Beliefs
This story by Camus was pretty twisted, but I think it had some really good lessons and thoughts throughout it. Meursault was a very abnormal character that Camus introduced us to. But if you look beyond his insensitivity and numbed mind, there are some things that you can learn from him. Even though he acted much differently than society would and expects, he did value something. And that was staying truthful to himself and to others. Even when…

Moral panics was introduced by sociologist Stanley Cohen studying the youth culture in the 60s. Cohen looked at the media reaction to the fights between the mods and rockers at various seaside resorts in Britain in the mid-60s. His term ‘moral panic’ came to mean ‘a mass response to a group, a person or an attitude that becomes defined as a threat to society’. (Media studies; The Essential Introduction 2001 ed)
Cohen described moral panics as cultural politics. Moral panics are…
