Question description

Exploring Social Problems and Policies

In this module you will start thinking about what social injustice is and how public policies at the local, state, and national level may contribute to social problems.

Research social welfare policies using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet.

  • Select a social problem, for example, poverty, crime, or unemployment.
  • Identify and describe the social factors that contribute to the problem.
  • Identify and examine a federal or state social welfare policy that aims to address this social problem.
  • Employ the textbook’s National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics as a frame of reference and complete the following:
    • Explain whether this social policy addresses the social problem adequately and ethically.
    • Give reasons and examples in support.

Research the selected social problem as it exists in one other country. Respond to the following:

  • Compare the implications of this social problem in your community to that of the other country.
  • Discuss how this problem is handled in the other country. For example, pollution of local water sources may be a problem in your community, but how is it addressed in Norway?
  • Give examples and reasons in support of your response.

Write your initial response in 300–400 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

By Saturday, July 25, 2015, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through Wednesday, July 29, 2015, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses. Cover the following items in your posts:

  • Provide a statement of clarification.
  • Provide a point of view with rationale.
  • Challenge a point of discussion, or draw a relationship between one or more points of the discussion.
