Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
This week your task is to prepare an annotated outline for your Signature Assignment. Use the following criteria to organize your outline, which will become the basis of your Signature Assignment. The Signature Assignment for this course is to identify a current social problem with which a social worker may be involved. As part of your presentation of the problem, be sure to describe how elements of human rights and social justice intersect with this social problem.
Select a population that would require social work services related to this problem.
Select a developmental phase of life (i.e., infancy and early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence, adulthood, or late adulthood), and then explain the implications of this problem on an individual’s life course trajectory.
Along with the developmental theory related to the stage of life you identified above, identify one theory of human behavior and the social environment that is used to support work with this social problem. Find at least two sources to support this claim.
Examine how you as a social worker would advocate for the affected population regarding this problem.
Support your assessment of human behavior in social environments by drawing upon at least five scholarly works in the discipline of social work. Be sure to review this week’s resources carefully. You are expected to apply the information from these resources when you prepare your assignments.
