Analysis Of The Effects Of Population Growth

Assignment 1: Analysis of the Effects of Population Growth

Due Week 4 and worth 110 points

Imagine you have been hired as a consultant for the United Nations. You have been asked to write an analysis of how global population growth has caused the following problem and how it affects climate change or population growth in a developing country of your choosing:

A growing global population that consumes natural resources is partially to blame for the release of greenhouse gases since human consumption patterns lead to deforestation, soil erosion, and farming (overturned dirt releases CO2). However, the critical issue is the burning of fossil fuels (hydrocarbons) such as coal, oil, and natural gas to produce energy that is used for things such as electricity production, and vehicle, heating, and cooking fuels.

The UN has asked that you choose a developing country from this list: https://www.mrs.org/developing-countries-list.

The UN has also given you the following guidelines.

Content

The UN has asked that your paper contain three sections. It has asked that each section be one page (or approximately 300 words) in length and answer specific questions, identified in the outline below. The UN also asks that you use examples from your developing country when answering the questions.

Introduction

Provide an introduction (a half-page minimum) that addresses points a-e below.

a. Explains the problem the UN has asked you to address in your own words;

b. Identifies the three sections your paper will cover;

c. Identifies the developing country you will consider;

d. Tells the UN which causes of greenhouse gases you will explore; and

e. Provides a one-sentence statement of your solutions at the end of your introduction paragraph.

Section I. Background

a. What are greenhouse gases?

b. How do greenhouse gases contribute to global warming?

Section II. How Emissions Cause Problems for the Developing World

1. Which countries produce the most greenhouse gases?

2. What are the economic challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?

3. What are the security challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?

4. What are the political challenges of these emissions (include examples from your chosen country)?

Section III. Causes of Greenhouse Gases and Solutions to the Problems Greenhouse Gases Cause

a. Name two causes of greenhouse gases.

b. What are the potential solutions that address each of the causes you identified?

c. What is the relationship between population control and greenhouse gas emissions?

Conclusion

Provide a conclusion (a half-page minimum) that includes a summary of your findings that the United Nations can use to inform future policy decisions.

Success Tips

In answering each question, use examples from your developing country to illustrate your points.

The UN needs facts and objective analysis on which to base future policy decisions; avoid personal opinion and make sure your answers are based on the information you find through research.

Formatting Requirements

Make sure your paper consists of four to six pages (re: 1,200 words minimum, not including the cover page, reference page, and quoted material [if any]).

Create headings for each section of your paper as follows:

Section I. Background

Section II. How Emissions Cause Problems for the Developing World

Section III. Causes of Greenhouse Gases and Solutions to the Problems Greenhouse Gases Cause

Use and cite at least five credible sources in your research. A list of potential resources is available below.

Make sure your paper contains both in-text citations and a source list, per SWS guidelines: Refer to the Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) document for reference.

Connecting Knowledge And Research

Sociology homework help
Report Issue
Assignment: Connecting Knowledge and Research
In order to provide the appropriate intervention, social workers first need to have conducted a thorough assessment. Having a comprehensive understanding of a client and their social environment, including the influence of racism and ethnocentrism, allows a social worker to accurately identify the presenting problems and help the client develop goals to address their needs. Not completing a full assessment may result in inaccurately identifying the presenting problem and pushing goals on the client to which they do not agree. A good assessment is the best foundation for treatment planning.

In addition, evidence based practice requires social workers to use the best available evidence to inform their practice decisions. This assignment helps you prepare for the final project by beginning to identify the presenting problem and possible goals, as well as beginning the research process to inform your treatment recommendations when working with the identified client in a case study.

To prepare: Conduct research in the Walden library to locate at least 1 peer-reviewed scholarly resource(s) that could inform your assessment or intervention with the case you plan to use in your final project.

By Day 7
Submit a 2-3 page paper in which you:

Identify the case you will be using for the final project
Describe the presenting problem(s)
Describe 2 goals for the client based on their presenting problem
Identify a specific peer-reviewed article and explain how it could inform understanding of the problem/population, development of goals, or intervention and treatment plan
Explain how ethnocentrism and racism may influence the case (make sure to draw from this week’s assigned readings)

Evaluation Of Skills: Client System Role-Play Reflection And Analysis Paper

Report Issue
Assignment: Evaluation of Skills: Client System Role-Play Reflection and Analysis Paper

After planning the script and videotaping the role-play scenario, how did it feel to walk in the shoes of a social worker? What insights did you gain from the experience? What aspects of this experience were challenging for you? Being able to recognize the areas where you were successful and the areas where you need improvement are what make role-plays an important part of your social work education.

For the written segment of your Final Project, reflect on your experience in developing this role-play video. Consider any insights you gained from the experience, as well as the challenges you might have experienced in its planning and execution. Think about the specific social work techniques you used and why you used them. Finally, review the videos your colleagues posted. Select one of those videos and consider any areas in which your colleague might improve their approach and why.

Submit a 4- to 5-page paper. In your paper, address the following:

Reflect on your experience in doing the role-play video.
Describe insights you gained from the experience and explain how these insights affect your approach to practice.
Describe the challenges you experienced in planning and executing the role-play scenario and explain how you overcame them.
Focus on insights and challenges related to demonstrating skills and engaging as a professional social worker, not on technical aspects of role-playing or recording the scene.
Describe the specific engagement techniques/skills you used and analyze why you used them.
Describe the colleague’s role-play video you selected.
Assess what your colleague did well in the video you selected and recommend areas for improvement in your colleague’s approach.
Support your Assignment with specific references to the Resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.

Bio Psychosocial Assessments

Project: Bio-Psycho-Social Assessment

Assessing a client’s biological, psychological, and social history is a holistic approach that is an essential aspect of social work practice. Since one area often affects the other two, it is important to get as accurate an assessment as possible when working with a client. Social workers use the bio-psycho-social tool to communicate specific information, and possible conclusions, about a client to other professionals. It is, at once, a summary of current issues and problems; a listing of past factors that may be relevant to the current situation; and a description of potential issues that may have an effect on the client in the future. In addition to describing the client’s challenges and problems, the assessment identifies strengths and assets that are available to provide support. For this Project you create a bio-psycho-social assessment.

Submit a 6- to 9-page paper that focuses on an adolescent from one of the case studies presented in this course. For this Project, complete a bio-psycho-social assessment and provide an analysis of the assessment. This Project is divided into two parts:

Part A: Bio-Psycho-Social Assessment: The assessment should be written in professional language and include sections on each of the following:

Presenting issue (including referral source)
Demographic information
Current living situation
Birth and developmental history
School and social relationships
Family members and relationships
Health and medical issues (including psychological and psychiatric functioning, substance abuse)
Spiritual development
Social, community, and recreational activities
Client strengths, capacities, and resources
Part B: Analysis of Assessment. Address each of the following:

Explain the challenges faced by the client(s)—for example, drug addiction, lack of basic needs, victim of abuse, new school environment, etc.
Analyze how the social environment affects the client.
Identify which human behavior or social theories may guide your practice with this individual and explain how these theories inform your assessment.
Explain how you would use this assessment to develop mutually agreed-upon goals to be met in order to address the presenting issue and challenges face by the client.
Explain how you would use the identified strengths of the client(s) in a treatment plan.
Explain how you would use evidence-based practice when working with this client and recommend specific intervention strategies (skills, knowledge, etc.) to address the presenting issue.
Analyze the ethical issues present in the case. Explain how will you address them.
Describe the issues will you need to address around cultural competence.

Final Case Assignment: Application Of The Problem-Solving Model And Theoretical Orientation

Review and focus on the case study that you chose in Week 2.
Review the problem-solving model, focusing on the five steps of the problem-solving model formulated by D’Zurilla on page 388 in the textbook.
In addition, review this article listed in the Learning Resources: Westefeld, J. S., & Heckman-Stone, C. (2003). The integrated problem-solving model of crisis intervention: Overview and application. The Counseling Psychologist, 31(2), 221–239. https://doi-org.ezp.waldenulibrary.org/10.1177/0011000002250638

Upload your PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following:

Identify the theoretical orientation you have selected to use.

Evaluate one merit and one limitation of using the problem-solving model for this case.
Your 11- to 12-slide PowerPoint presentation should follow these guidelines:

Each slide should be written using bullet points, meaning no long paragraphs of written text should be in the slides.

Be sure to:

Identify and correctly reference the case study you have chosen.
Use literature to support your claims.
Use APA formatting and style.
Include the reference list on the last slide.

Identification Of A Policy Alternative

roject: Part 4: Identification of a Policy Alternative

As an astute social worker and professional policy advocate, once you have selected and identified a social problem, you begin the process of creating and implementing a policy that addresses that social problem. One of the first things you do in the implementation process is an analysis of the social policy you identified. There is always the possibility that the policy created and implemented to address the social problem you identified is not viable for a variety of reasons. In this case, you must explore a policy alternative.

In Part 4 of your ongoing Social Change Project assignment, you identify a policy alternative to the social problem you identified.

By Day 7
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.
