Please follow the instructions carefully. I did start the introduction and use that on the paper. For textbook I did attach it.

Part II (7 pages): The purpose of this part of the assignment is for you to summarize your understanding of generalist Social Work practice with an oppressed group. Specifically, describe what you think it would be like as a social worker to work with clients from an oppressed population.
Select one oppressed group you are interested in learning more about. If you are a member of an oppressed group, choose a different group. For example, if you select gender and you are a woman, then you can explore transgender, or males, or some other gender orientation. If you have a learning disability and select disabilities, you need to explore a different disability. You can choose a group from one of the following categories:
Race or ethnicity
Read about this group and how to engage in culturally competent practice from each of the following three sources:
a social work textbook
the Encyclopedia of Social Work
professional social work journal
Based on your academic reading:
Provide a brief history of how your chosen group has been oppressed (A very quick and simple explanation of what a transgender is and basically gives overall of everything and what they’ve been through is like abstract that tells you what you need to know basically)
Discuss three of the following areas with regard to the oppressed group you have
General information about family structures within this group (for example, nuclear [parents together in same house], extended [living with grandparents or other family members], single-parent) Lots of trans kids get kicked out of the home for their gender
Education disparities (bullying in school, dropout rates vs cisgender kids?)
Health concerns and disparities (gender-confirming medication — testosterone or estrogen
How might members of this group access and respond to mental health services. Conversion Therapy
Describe/discuss culturally competent social work practice guidelines for this group and what it might it be like to provide culturally competent services in the U.S. for this group. Use the NASW Cultural Competence Guide. How might a member of this group respond to help from sources, such as a social worker who is outside of their culture or group or a member of their group?
We all have actual and potential biases. Given the various aspects of your own social identity, what are some of the potential ‘challenges’ that you might face in working with this population – both from the client and within yourself? What would you do to address these potential biases? May need more cultural information due to not being from the US

Start with a statistic about the rising number of transgender kids/people in general. —> https://williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/Trans-Pop-Update-Jun-2022.pdf
The number of transgendered youth has doubled in the past five years, and is likely to continue increasing. Transgendered people, and youth, in particular, have many societal struggles including access to gender-affirming medication and surgery, education, and family problems. According to a study by the Williams Institute, the fact that a lot of young adults drop out of school or skip classes because are they getting harassment and bullying by students also they feel unwelcomed by society. In studies that solely included LGBTQ-identified kids, those who reported experiencing a lot of bullying and victimization at school as a result of their sexual orientation had reduced GPAs an average GPA of 2.8 as opposed to 3.3 for those who experienced less persecution(Kosciw, Greytak, Palmer, & Boesen, 2014). I strongly believe that this would cause parents to start getting worried and disappointed in their kids and make them want to kick the kids out since they’re not doing good in school especially if the kid’s parents are homophobic. When you are dealing with a parent who does not support the LGBTQ and their kid happens to be a part of that community it is more likely that they could get kicked out especially when they start doing badly in school because of everything that they’re dealing with in the school. Making poor grades will affect the kids and they will develop mental issues. Also if the parent supports an LGBTQ student will get better grades than that parent who does not accept them. Parents who refuse to understand, or simply can not understand that their child is a female/male in the body of a male/female is the number one reason for transgender youth suicide.
