SOCIAL WORK MACRO & POLICY PRACTICE-Assignment – Current Social Problem Assessment and Analysis Paper 30% of total grade The purpose of this assignment is for the student to demonstrate knowledge of a current social problem affecting the larger society (e.g. poverty, homelessness or lack of affordable and decent housing, lack of affordable healthcare—and COVI-19, unemployment or underemployment –low wages, racism/sexism/homophobia, or discrimination) and the social worker’s role in addressing it. The student will research how government and private structures and organizations, as part of the social services delivery system, respond to social problems. In the paper the student will demonstrate her/his understanding of how the social service delivery systems best serve the needs of at-risk, vulnerable, or marginalized communities. Special attention is given to social programs that work with at-risk, marginalized clients, and that provide opportunities to implement trauma-informed, strengths-based frameworks to service delivery organizations. In addition, problem analysis provides an opportunity for the student to apply acquired knowledge related to poverty, trauma and oppression experienced by marginalized groups and communities.
