Homework 4 | Social Science homework help


Identify 3 behavioral health and/or human services programs that have been created to address a general social need or problem you are interested in (these programs could be ones being implemented at your workplace, field placement, former workplaces, etc.).  Briefly describe what is known about the program (what is the purpose/who has benefited from the program); if the program has been implemented with your targeted population of interest; and any limitations of the program(s) (e.g., has the program been implemented with your population or has the program measured outcomes that you are interested in). Your findings can be displayed in a table and/or in paragraph form (with bullet points). To identify these programs, you will need to conduct a brief literature search to see the types of programs/services that have been developed to address a social problem/social need of interest to you. For example, if you are interested in preventing domestic violence (the problem), what types of programs/services have been created to prevent this problem (or help those who have been victimized).  Include a brief reference page to cite the resources you reviewed to complete this assignment (use credible resources).
