Poverty in America- ABS Case Study DeeABS 200 Introduction to Applied Behavioral SciencePoverty in America- Case Study DeeI will describe a case study based on Dee, and poverty in America. As I write this I will share Dees life, how and why she is in poverty. I am too proud to complain, (Seccombe, 2007) Dee in my case study will tell us. While most experience poverty as individuals, we on the outside looking in cannot fully grasp its causes and effects without an appreciation of the social environment in which poverty exists.Poverty is experienced both on a macro, societal level, and experience. To truly understand it requires us to connect both the micro- and macro-level experiences. Dee is hoping to avoid programs like welfare, and food stamps or Medicaid, but there are few options open to those in the cycle of poverty. Poverty is increasing in America. What are the reasons for poverty for those like Dee, how did they get there? Is the cause individualism, social structuralism, culture of poverty, or fatalism? In the case study I am presenting about Dee, in this paper the focal point will be on poverty and how Dee ended up there. What events and factors took place for her to end up and remain in the cycle of poverty? This study is based on a client named Dee, who lives in poverty. I will share Dees background influences that led to her situation.The fact that she does not want to except help from the government in terms of welfare, food stamp
