  • Discuss whether this policy is effective in meeting the needs of this population. Why or why not? Be sure to support your opinion with your research.
  • Locate a program in your own community designed to meet the needs of this population. Describe the program and include your opinion (supported by facts from your research) of its effectiveness.
  • Finally identify skills needed to influence and improve each of the policies you have identified.
