Project: Part 4: Identification of a Policy Alternative

I’m trying to study for my Social Science course and I need some help to understand this question.

In Part 4 of your ongoing Social Change Project assignment, you identify a policy alternative to the social problem you identified (Abuse and Neglect is the social problem I identified).

Complete Part 4 of your Social Change Project.

Address the following items within a 3-4 page paper:

  • What is the policy alternative?
  • What, if any, change(s) in the policy alternative are necessary and where will they need to occur (local, state, national, and international)?
  • Is this policy alternative congruent with social work values? Explain.
  • What is the feasibility of the alternative policy (political, economic, and administrative)?
  • Does the policy alternative meet the policy goals (e.g., social equality, redistribution of resources, social work values, and ethics)?
  • What are the forces that are for/against the policy?
  • What policy advocacy skills can be used to support the policy alternative?
  • How does the current policy affect clinical social work practice with clients?
  • What changes could be made in the policy to support the needs of clients seeking clinical services?
  • Provide an update on the advocacy activities your proposed in the Week 6 Assignment.

Make sure that your assertions are supported by appropriate research and reputable resources.
