Examine a social problem that impacts social workers
You will critically examine a social problem that impacts social workers and the clients they serve. In 3-5 pages, you will need to cover the following:
1) Identify the social issue or problem;
· Describe what it is. Use statistics and sources to tell me about how widespread this problem is, how many people it impacts, and how. (1-2 paragraphs)
2) Determine which vulnerable groups are impacted by the social issue and briefly explain how they are impacted;
· These are likely multiple groups, so mention each one and how they are impacted. (women, children, people of color, LGBT, immigrant, low-income individuals/families, people with disabilities, older adults, etc.) (1-2 pages)
o For example, if you chose poverty as your issue, you’d want to mention that the groups MOST impacted in the U.S. are children, single mothers, and people of color. Then, talk about how poverty impacts each group specifically (access to equally funded educational opportunities, impacts on health, etc.)
3) Describe at least two previous and current attempts, strategies, and policies to address or solve the issue or problem;
· What types of programs of policies exist to address this issue? Are there any that are propose in bills/legislation now that are trying to change the approach to address the problem? (1-2 pages)
4) Briefly explain why social workers should care about this issue (1-2 paragraphs)
