Diversity Research Assignment

Diverse Population Class

Diversity Research Assignment

You will research diversity competent practice with a diverse and disadvantaged and/or oppressed population (your definition of this can be broad – e.g., some groups that could be considered include those with developmental or other physical/mental challenges; sexual or ethnic minorities; older adults; men, because they often aren’t a focus of practice). The goal of this assignment is to assist you in using the social work literature to identify techniques and strategies supported by research in working with diverse groups.

What you need to do:

1. Locate one journal article, book, or professional paper that describes some aspect of social work practice addressing your chosen population. You might begin by looking at the bibliography for the text. In addition, you can consult the computerized databases in the library (e.g., PsycINFO, Social Sciences Abstracts). 

2. Read the article and identify one technique or strategy that the author(s) suggests will be helpful in working with this population.

3. Prepare a brief, two to three page, written summary of the technique and a critique of the author’s research. In your review, address the following (5 points each):

a. What does the author suggest are the main clinical or other issues facing this population?

b. Describe the approach suggested by the author(s). Include comments on the extent to which the approach allows for consumers to determine their own goals and options and make their own decisions.

c. Does the author cite any research or study that supports his/her suggestions?

d. What are some of the limitations to using this approach, particularly for this population (e.g., Is it appropriate? Does is limit empowerment, person-directedness in achieving goals, solutions, etc.? Might it reinforce stereotypes/oppression? Is it an evidence-based approach?)?

e. Are there any ethical considerations in using this approach?

f. Would you be comfortable using this approach? Why or why not? Include in this any critique you might have of the approach based on your knowledge of the population, research methods, theory, etc., or any values conflicts you might have personally.

g. What did you learn about this population? Did what you learn change any previously held beliefs, values, ideas, stereotypes, etc. about this population? How?

h. Be sure to include a full citation for the article you used.

Please build on the following info;

Assignment: Application of Attachment Theory to a Case Study

Submit a 1- to 2-page case write-up that addresses the following: (Jake Levey) Summarize the assumptions of attachment theory in 2 to 3 sentences. Identify the problem in your chosen case study to be worked on from an attachment theoryperspective. Explain how attachment theory defines and explains the cause of the problem in one to two sentences.  Develop two assessment questions that are guided by attachment theory that you would ask the client to understand how the stress or distress is affecting the client. Discuss two interventions to address the problem. Remember, the theory should be driving the interventions. In other words, you would not identify systematic desensitization since this is not an intervention guided by attachment theory. Formulate one self-reflective question that is influenced by attachment theory that you can ask yourself to gain greater empathy for what the client is experiencing. Explain which outcomes you could measure to evaluate client progress based theory.
