Abstract

A lot of social issues generally approached the issue of problem-based approach (PBA) with a variety of other derivative terms, namely medical model, the deficit approach, or a more traditional approach. Problem-based approach to focus more on weaknesses in the client’s self that causes problems, both at the micro, mezzo and macro levels. PBA is less attention to the potentials, aspirations, hopes and potential sources residing on the client and the client environment. Strength-based approach (strength perspective) as a perspective emerged in response to the previous approach. This approach started to pay attention to the potential, aspirations, expectations and resources that can be utilized within the framework of solving social problems. For the social work profession, this perspective provides a new angle to look at and address the social problems facing clients.Keywords: Problem Based Approach, Strength Perspective, Social Work

Abstract

Zakah in Indonesia has a great potential in contributing the improvement of life quality of people in need in Indonesia. With this such potential, many Amil Zakah Institutions (Lembaga Amil Zakat/LAZ) are founded in Indonesia as faith based organizations (FBO). The literatures mentioned that Faith Based Organization has already taken its own place in the world of Social Work and Social Welfare. This article discussed the LAZ existence as one of the FBO in Indonesia. Utilization of zakah from charity to empowerment--including economic empowerment—has been an evidence that LAZ evolved into a better direction. This certainly can negate the negative stigma that has been pinned to social services of the FBO. Keywords: faith based organization, human service organization, manajemen, lembaga amil zakat

Abstract

It is interesting to look at the Head of Criminal Investigation statement of the Indonesian National Police Commissioner General Ito Sumardi (Kompas, 22/9/2010), which warns that the crime of terrorism is closely related to ideology. Sociologist Van Dijk (1993) states that ideology is basically a mental system that is exchanged, represented both in the level of discourse and action to achieve certain goals or desires in a groups (defi ned as the system of mental representations and processes of group members). Why (technology) Internet so powerful in spreading the message of terrorism? First, the interaction happens on internet can be done anywhere and anytime. Second, Internet users in Indonesia, which is increasingly growing in number, allows access to the site or content to be easily obtained terrorism. Third, Internet medium provides access not only cheap but free. Fourth, the Internet allows anyone to construct new identity. In a fact proves that the identities of individuals in cyber world are individuals who have two possibilities, it could be the same or different identities as in the real world. Furthermore, the individual does not only have one identity per se on the internet, they could have multiple identities as well as different characteristics from each other. In according to Gilmore (1996), those on the Internet nobody knows you at all, not either knows your race or your sex. This is the opportunities that could be used by the perpetrators of terrorism to spread the ideology of terrorism and violence in the name of religion without worried their identity will be revealed. Key words: cybermedia, virtual terorism, internet, identity.

Abstract

Perpindahan penduduk dari desa ke kota disebabkan oleh pembangunan yang tidak merata di Indonesia, di mana seluruh faktor pembangunan terpusat dan tumbuh hanya di daerah perkotaan, mulai dari pusat pemerintahan, perekonomian, pendidikan, serta pariwisata. Hal inilah yang menjadi salah satu faktor penarik bagi sebagian masyarakat desa untuk berbondong-bondong pergi ke kota. Dengan minimnya pengetahuan, keahlian dan aset (modal), mereka rentan mengalami permasalahan sosial di kota tujuan mereka. Dalam kondisi inilah Ikatan Silaturahmi Keluarga Putra Bengawan (IKPB), sebagai perkumpulan masyarakat Jawa yang ada di Kelurahan Cempaka Putih Ciputat, menjadi wadah saling tolong menolong sesama anggota yang memiliki permasalahan sosial. Dengan membangun kepercayaan (trust), jaringan wirausaha (networking), serta saling memberikan pertolongan (resiprositas), paguyuban ini mampu menjadi jaring pengaman sosial yang mewadahi seluruh anggota untuk mengatasi beragam permasalahan sosial.Keywords: kapital social, trust, networking, resiprositas, budaya Jawa, permasalahan sosial.
