Social Problem for a Specific At-Risk Population

Examine a Social Problem for a Specific At-Risk Population

This week, you will submit your Signature Assignment. Your professor has provided feedback on the Annotated Outline you prepared for Week 6 and this should assist you in completing your final paper.

Begin by providing an overview of the social problem with which a social worker may be involved. As part of this overview, explain how elements of human rights and social justice intersect with this social problem.

Next, discuss the population you have previously selected that would require social work services related to this problem. Describe and analyze characteristics of this population such as ethnicity, health concerns, and socioeconomic class.

Explain the implications of this problem on the developmental phase of life (i.e., infancy and early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence, adulthood, or late adulthood) that you have previously selected. Your explanation should examine how an intervention, or lack thereof, might affect the individual’s life course trajectory.

Once you have presented the social problem and the selected population, explain how your studies and experience as a social worker will assist you in advocating for your clients who face 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.
