Discuss the effects or  consequences of social problem

There are many social problems  that impact our society, and on a larger scale, our world. As a human services  professional, you need to develop a greater sense of awareness of these social  problems, which will better assist you to become an advocate for the people for  whom you serve.

For this part of your project,  you will examine the history of the chosen social problem. (Drug Abuse)

Part 1: Research

Conduct some further, in-depth research of your chosen social  problem. Locate two (2) credible resources describing the history, evolution of  that problem, and what has been attempted in the past to eradicate the problem. You can use your textbook, credible websites, articles, etc.  One must be a resource located through the Rasmussen Library databases.

Part 2: Reflect

  • Summarize the history  of the social problem?
  • Discuss the effects or  consequences of the social problem (negative and positive)?
  • Identify what  individuals, groups, organizations, social institutions are involved? What  values, beliefs, norms, and issues by whom are involved?
  • List what sociological  assumption(s) fit this problem? What social factors (causes) are involved by  level? (Who says so? research done?) What sociological perspectives are  involved?
  • Incorporate two (2)  credible resources describing the history and evolution of the chosen social  problem. Cite sources used.

Use professional language including complete sentences and  proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation throughout your paper. Be sure to  cite any research sources in APA format.
