Paper topic: Read Chapter 4 in your text (An Introduction to Human Services 7th edition by Woodside and McClam) and answer the following questions in the form of a paper:
Ø Select a problem that you know is currently receiving the attention of the helping professions. Discuss how each model from Chapter 4 (Medical Model, Public Health Model and Human Services Model) might approach the problem.
Ø What seems to be the strengths and the weaknesses of each model in addressing the problem you chose? Be sure to clearly cite material from the text and support your assertions with evidence (i.e. explain your reasoning).
Ø In addition, discuss two resources (typically in the form of human services organizations) available to address the problem you selected. For example, if you discussed alcoholism, you might select AA and a community rehabilitation program as your resources. The resources can be online resources so long as they are credible organizations (not blogs or Wikipedia type information).
Ø Answer the following questions about your two resources:
What are the purpose, goals, and mission of the Human Services organization you selected?
How is the organization trying to make changes to what it identifies as key issues?
What will the organization need to do in order to effectively make these changes/address these issues?
