Providing individualized care Care Values Include: Confidentiality Effective Communication Privacy Respect Empowerment Anti-Discriminatory Practice Anti-Discus minatory Practice Anti-Discriminatory Practice is when no one can be discriminated against based on their Color, Religion, Learning Ability, Race, Sexual Orientation and
Disability (Physical or Mental). If a person is discriminated against then they can get hold of a number of groups and prosecute the individuals, or companies for this.
An example of ‘anti-discriminatory practice’ would be to treat all children fairly and equally such as during class discussions/activities every child should get the chance to participate and share their views with the rest of their peers.
Also celebrating special religious occasions such as: Did, Christmas, Dalai, Easter and Chinese New Year by doing this you’re showing he child that you value their beliefs in addition to that you can set up different activities based around the religious celebrations this will give the other children that aren’t from that background more of an understanding and also the child from that background.
Confidentiality: (Data protection Act 1 998) Confidentiality and personal privacy is essential when dealing with children; it has to be protected so that not just anyone can gain access to it.
Individuals have a right to privacy and control over their personal details so it is crucial to pep all information shared confidential.
Anything which concerns a child should stay in the school/centre because it is a legal requirement and it also helps to exhibit that there is a relationship of trust between the child and caregiver. Besides it proves that the centre/school has respect for the child and values them. Though there may be a time when you have to share ‘need to know basis’ the information the service user disclosed to you.
For instance if the individual is being abused at home the caregiver should report to their zoos and let them know what the child has shared. But before doing this you have to inform the service user that you are going to disclose some of their information. As if you don’t and they find out they lose trust in you and they’ll feel less confident which could result in them feeling extremely uncomfortable around you. In my work placement they promote confidentiality such as keeping information regarding the children locked up in a filing cabinet where only the manager and deputy head can gain access to it.
This can also help to raise the self-esteem of children. Empowerment: Empowerment is giving individuals a substantial amount of information in order for them to make the appropriate decisions and choices about their life. Giving the individual the opportunity to take control of their life. In my placement they empower the children by giving them their own hooks to hang their jackets and bags on with their name beside it. They get the opportunity to pick what activity they take part in during playtime. Also each week a child gets the opportunity to be a book monitor or the choice to choose a song to sing together.
There are bi-lingual books, signs and labels. Can gain all access to the equipment which is available in the centre. Set of behavior rules which all children must follow. . Effective Communication: Communication is important when working with service users in. It can be defined as giving and receiving information, for instance verbally and non- verbally. It is important that am aware of verbal & non-verbal communication when interacting with the children within my care setting, no matter what age they are. Often, the child may say they re okay, but facial expressions contradict.
