Social Work and Human Services
1) Identify an issue:

2) Identify the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) policy statement about that issue (statements can be found in the NASW Social Works

Speaks text).

3) Identify a policy statement, regulation or law from a country other than the United States that focuses on the chosen issue.

4) Identify a United Nations convention/position statement/policy about that issue.

5) Identify your position on the issue.

 

Paper format:

Introduction to the chosen issue including populations it impacts and the scope of the issue (Example: how many people are homeless in the US?

worldwide? who is primarily impacted by homelessness?)

Identify the NASW position – attempt to paraphrase the statements, do not simply copy and paste them into your paper. If you need to provide a small

quote to highlight their position, this is fine.

Identify the UN position – attempt to paraphrase the statements, do not simply copy and paste them into your paper. If you need to provide a small

quote to highlight their position, this is fine.

Identify a policy statement, regulation or law from a country other than the United States that focuses on the chosen issue.

Compare and contrast these three positions with your position on the identified issue provide meaningful analysis in this area that shows evidence of

critical thinking about this issue and the statements, how they are the same, how they differ and why this might be.

Go beyond stating only that you agree or disagree.

In what ways are you aligned with the positions of NASW, the UN, etc? In what ways does your philosophy conflict?
How do frames of reference such as values, beliefs, culture, shape your position and how this issue is viewed and how it is responded to?
Provide a concluding paragraph

References and in-text citations should be in APA format.

Three legitimate references – one must be the NASW Social Work Speaks text. You may also include other sources to support your work.
