Assignment: Final Project Milestone 4: 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 will identify a policy alternative to better alleviate the social problem you identified. 

To Prepare:

  • Review the article by McNutt      (attached) 
  • Review your previous Final      Project Milestone Assignments and your Instructor feedback. Consider the      following: 
    • Identification of a Social       Problem (Week 2) Food Insecurity! (attached)
    • Issue Statement (Week       4) Food Insecurity! (attached)
    • Identification of a Policy       (Week 4) Food Insecurity! (attached)
    • Social Advocacy Proposal       (Week 6) Food Insecurity! (attached)
  • Based on your work to      date, including your insights into the selected social problem,      careful analysis of a policy, and goals for advocacy, identify a policy      alternative that would work to better alleviate the social      problem while mitigating adverse impacts for the relevant      populations. 
  • Search for and select at      least five scholarly articles to support your selection      and review of a policy alternative. 

By Day 7

Submit a 3- to 4-page paper that addresses the following: 

  • What is the policy      alternative? 
  • What, if any, change(s) in      the policy alternative are necessary, and where will they need to occur      (local or state)? 
  • 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 the policy? What are the forces that      are against the policy? 
  • What policy advocacy skills      can be used to support the policy alternative? 
  • How does the      policy alternative affect clinical social work practice with      clients? 
  • What changes could be made      in the policy to support the needs of clients seeking clinical      services?
