Awareness of Anti-Oppressive Practice
The anti-oppressive practice is a major approach that delineates a practice of social work in order to mitigate oppression of social and economic conditions. In accordance with the provided case study the mitigation of anti-oppressive practices is a steady requirement for solving the relevant issues and gaps. In the opinion of Boone et al. (2018), the socio cultural and economic barriers and gap can be fulfilled through proper understanding of the strategic implementation that is highly required to be implemented through creation of egalitarian environment. This egalitarian environment needs to be highly free from racism, oppression and large scale discriminations that can cause ethical harm to the society and the individuals involved in it.
In accordance with the case study, there needs to be a proper anti-oppressive model that can be useful to excruciate the various discriminations and instil faith and understanding towards stability of social strata and social unity. The anti oppressive practices can hence be fulfilled through proper understanding of the basic differences between individuals in the diverse world and thereby respecting each individual through understanding of their issues and challenges instead of blatantly discriminating people through artificially made social standards. According to the view of Ioakimidis (2016), henceforth in accordance with the case study it is extremely crucial to determine and develop proper strategies for identification of issues that are causing oppressive actions and are demolishing the emotion of the people concerned in the social strata. Oppressions can be various starting from individual oppression, cultural oppression, and institutional oppression that can inflict harm upon other people. Thus in order to formulate anti-oppression strategies, the people need to identify the basis of establishing the solutions through identification of oppression types.

The breach of ethical awareness can be highly harmful for any individual or group, given that their moral indignation has been hurt and broken. Thus in accordance with the case study it can be highly understandable that the awareness of ethical dilemmas need to be properly revised and accepted among the individuals to identify the notion of moral support. The conduct of ethical approach can be highly significant in understanding the requirement of the moral philosophy and understanding the concept of right and wrong doings. In the opinion of Chen et al. (2019), ethical judgements and awareness are hence forth significant part of operation to understand the various issues through which the whole functional element in the ethical indignation can be justified and enriched through proper fulfilment of moral and ethical justifications. Ethical awareness can be highly significant in accordance with the provided case study to understand the basis on which the proper behaviour should be conducted and the children needs to be taken care of to help them identify the ways in which they can instil their faith in moral judgement. According to the view point of Latan et al. (2019), the children need to value the significance of moral judgements and are thus required to identify the importance of awareness of ethics.
