M3 - Discuss difficulties that may arise when implementing anti-discriminatory practice As mentioned briefly in the previous assignment there's covert discrimination this is discrimination which is concealed and can go unnoticed this can pose as a problem. There are four main reasons why promoting anti-discriminatory practice may be difficult. Socialisation Socialisation is where 'norms' are adopted by people though learning about behaviour and having situations where influences and norms in society effect the way people behave. One example of socialisation preventing anti-discriminatory practice is though in a culture saying 'please' and 'thank you' to things, where in another culture this may not be normal and so if someone doesn't say thank you or please to something this may be seen as rude, and could make the person treat the other person differently. Another part of socialisation that may cause problems is education of situations of people and the understanding of a person's situation, this can be though things like not understand why someone behaviours in that and then the professionals ...read more.


This is discrimination as the health care professionals are not allowing the person to express their views with freedom and acceptance, this can cause the person distress and not valued. Past Events Past events can affect Anti-discriminatory practice being put in place, an example of this happen could be a situation in a nursery where a child minder has had a young child with ADHD and this child could of caused them a lot of trouble and difficulty, and so they may refuse to look after another child with ADHD because of this situation and this could be grouped as discrimination, because the other child with ADHD may not cause trouble can could be really well behaved and treating the child unfairly due to a bad experience is prejudice, therefore not promote rights or equality as its isolating the individual and isn't allowing the service user their rights.

Language and communication Language and communication could be barrier and prevent anti-discriminatory practice this can happen in a number of ways. This could be though differences in way people speak which may be hard to understand e.g. different accents or different areas in different parts of the country may talk differently. Also the use of jargon could create a kind of discriminatory practice and prevent the promotion of anti discriminatory practice this could be though the professional getting annoyed if the service user doesn't understand what is being said and this could be because they are using jargon and not helping the individual to understand. Overall, there can be a wide range of reasons why anti-discriminatory practice isn't promoted or issues that stand in the way of it being promoted, and lot of theses may be done without realising but these can be prevented though training and awareness of our own behaviour. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

An impressive essay that had looked at a variety of procedures and thought how they can prevent anti discriminatory practice. I think it could be enhanced in a few areas by expanding and explaining what is the cause and I also feel that examples would really help to clarify what is written. A good essay on the whole.
