Yesterday, SJS was approached about a potential Child Protective Service(CPS) workers strike in Los Angeles County, CA.
Sooo glad I got out of my contract with them….
Where Children Sleep photographed by James Mollison around the world.
"When photographer James Mollison was asked to do a project on children’s rights, he found himself thinking back to his childhood bedroom and the deep importance it played in his upbringing. Taking that idea with him around the world, he photographed a diverse cross section of children and the bedrooms they call home. His moving images remove the children from their home environment, showing them before a neutral background that mostly hides their economic status as if to say “kids are just kids.” Only when their bedroom is observed, however, does the full scope of their living situation become poiniently clear.”
Hiii. It’s application season and I’ve gotten a few “asks” about personal statements. I am happy to answer any remaining questions followers have about grad programs and help with the application process. Just email personal statements (it also helps for me to see a resume and a list of the programs you are applying to) to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will provide feedback on statements for any social work/psych/mental health-related programs.
This is a study being done by someone in my Master’s program. Feel free to contact Vicky if you’re interested in participating.
I know this comic isn’t even supposed to be ironic or anything but I can’t stop sad-laughing, because this illustrates perfectly so much that is wrong with ‘color-blindness’ and ‘gender-blindness’ and elitist pansexuality with the pansexuals/everyone else division
You’re literally stripping people of their identities, things they live with, things that help make them who they are, in order to homogenize them. You’re not ‘seeing past’ anything. You’re covering it up, ignoring it, erasing it. Whoever told you that ‘seeing past’ any part of a person was a good idea anyway??
Aside from the fact that the second picture is literally NOT what you see in any way whatsoever, given that, y’know, people have eyes and arms and aren’t gray blobs and junk, the way you imagine the world looking is HELLA FUCKING BORING!! Seriously, given the choice between seeing the world as diverse and vibrant and full of all kinds of people, and seeing the world like Night of the Faceless Heart-Eating Blob People, why would you ever even pretend to live in the latter???
they definitely see height though
Judge people on height alone!
Seems that people who “don’t see” colour/race/gender think it’s difficult to treat other human beings as equals if visible differences exist among them.
Some things I’ve learned in the CBT clinics I’ve been going to regarding anxiety that I thought might be helpful to some.I need to show that panic disorder one to a lot of people wow
All of this is really great. I just want to specifically add the the importance of letting someone with a phobia taking on exposure work and how it should be on their own terms. Encouraging a friend to overcome their anxieties is good, but shoving them into the deep end will not only be unhelpful, but in some cases, can actually backfire and make things incredibly worse. So. Please. Respect the phobic person’s boundaries.
(After getting my degree I definitely want people to realize these things. Down playing disorders is a great disservice to everyone.)
