Unit 9 Project
Throughout this unit, you have learned about many changes and social problems that impact families. For your Final Assignment, you will write an informative essay on one of the three following social problems that impact families: divorce, one-parent families, or family violence.
Part I: Begin your paper with a discussion of the social problem you have chosen and explain why you have chosen this particular social problem.
Part II: As human services professionals, it is important to be able to view social problems from multiple perspectives. There are often many people involved in a social problem. Some of the different people involved in social problems like divorce, one-parent families, and family violence are the mother, the father, and children. All of these people will be impacted by the problem in a unique way, and they may have different perspectives about what is occurring. With Part II, you are going to have the opportunity to examine the social problem you chose from multiple perspectives.
If you chose divorce or one-parent families, discuss how the parents and the children involved view the issue. If you chose family violence, discuss how the abused woman, and the children involved view the issue.
Part III: Conclude your paper by discussing how society views the social problem that you wrote about. In addition, discuss your role as an advocate. How can you work to create awareness and teach others about diversity and multiculturalism?
