Instructions: In the foundation year, you were exposed to the NASW Code of Ethic

Instructions: In the foundation year, you were exposed to the NASW Code of Ethics and began
to look at potential ethical dilemmas that can arise in clinical work. This year, we will continue
to reflect on ethical reasoning in resolving conflicts. Please read the following case vignette
below and write at least a two-page (500-word) essay discussing the issue. Please adhere to the
APA format. This assignment does require you to read:
National Association of Social Workers. (2017). Guide to the everyday professional conduct of
social workers. Washington, DC: Author.
Case Vignette
Angela was hired to perform psychosocial assessments with clients served by a home-health
agency. She was assigned to visit Mr. Harrak, who had recently been released from the hospital
following a hip replacement. He and his wife had immigrated from Morocco several years ago at
the request of their daughter. Mr. Harrak had limited English speaking ability, although his wife
was fairly fluent in English, her second language.
28
At Angela’s first visit with Mr. Harrak, he was alert and resting comfortably on the sofa; the
home appeared clean and orderly. His wife said that his pain was being managed successfully
and he had been eating reasonably well, but his sleep was often disrupted due to stress. Since
their move to the United States, Mr. Harrak had been having difficulties adjusting to the culture
and he missed his family back home. When Angela approached Mr. Harrak to offer support, she
observed several round, inflamed, bruise-like patches on his neck. Angela pointed them out with
concern and was told by Mrs. Harrak that they were the result of wet-cupping procedures that
she performed on her husband to help him relax and to support his healing. This treatment, she
explained, was recommended by the Islamic prophet Muhammad and has been used in her home
country ever since. Mr. Harrak nodded with a smile as his wife spoke and translated the
conversation for him. Angela then concluded her visit and left the home.
As she drove back to the office, Angela wondered whether she should file a report with Adult
Protective Services. She was concerned about Mr. Harrak receiving what appeared to be harmful
treatments at the hands of his wife. Yet, Angela had no knowledge of cupping and needed to
learn more. She also knew that she needed to consult with the nursing supervisor about next
steps. Her decision had implications for Mr. Harrak, herself, and her organization.
Is there a potential ethical conflict? What is it? What are the competing “values” in this vignette?
Make distinctions between complex clinical issues and potential ethical conflicts.1
Specifications
● Two pages (not including title and reference pages)
● 12-point, Times New Roman font
● Double-spaced with 1-inch margins on all sides

In Part 1 of your research proposal, you established the need for further study

In Part 1 of your research proposal, you established the need for further study in your literature review and mapped out your problem statement, research question, and methodological approach. Now you expand on that foundation by including your plans for sampling, data collection, and ethical and cultural considerations.
You also do a bit of reflection in Part 2—first by anticipating the results of your study and what you’d expect to find, and second by reflecting on the research process and what you have learned. For instance, to what extent has your understanding of research deepened? Does the research process seem more valuable now after having built your own proposal? Consider these questions as you complete your full research proposal, adding information to the Part 2 sections.
Submit the second part of your research proposal including the following sections in 2 to 3 pages:
Sampling and Sampling Method (1–2 paragraphs)
Data Collection (1 paragraph)
Ethics and Cultural Considerations (1–2 paragraphs)
What ethical and/or cultural issues need to be considered? How will you address those issues in your study?
Discussion (1 paragraph)
If you were to conduct the study, what would you expect the results to show? What would you do if the data didn’t align with your expectations?
Reflection (1 paragraph)
What did you learn about research through this process?
Make sure to include appropriate APA citations and a reference list.

It has been a couple of weeks since you submitted your logic model. In that period of time, you have had some time to consider whether you are still committed to the same program problem or need for a new assessment instrument. You might have had time to shop around to see what you can find in the literature about a replacement intervention or assessment instrument. Share with your classmates on the progress thus far by responding to the following components:
State the program problem you are planning to develop a program evaluation design around (1-3 sentences).
Describe the proposed intervention or instrument you are currently committed to exploring in enough detail that others would recognize it.
Pose two or more questions or concerns you might have about your proposed solution to the program problem.
NOTE*************************
Please use strong critical thinking and be detailed and provide deep reflection. I will attach my logic model so you have it. Also, I want to stay on this model. The rest you can add to it. Thank you!!

Why Per the NASW Code of Ethics (n.d.) a social worker’s ethical responsibility

Why
Per the NASW Code of Ethics (n.d.) a social worker’s ethical responsibility to the broader society asserts that “social workers should engage in social and political action that seeks to ensure that all people have equal access to the resources, employment, services, and opportunities they require to meet their basic human needs and to develop fully” (section 6.04 Social and Political Action). Policy advocacy is a mechanism that can be utilized to meet this ethical responsibility and have a direct impact on the needs of our consumers and communities.

What
For this assignment, learners will propose and describe elements of an advocacy campaign relating to a key issue for clients and/or their organization.
The assignment will answer questions from Toolkit 10: Advocating for Change Links to an external site.. The key questions to be answered are identified below.
Students will draw on information provided in the KU Community Tool Box, Chapters 30-33 in responding to the list of questions from the Toolkit.
The Advocacy Strategy Paper will include the following sections:
I. Identifying the Advocacy Issue: Why is this an essential advocacy issue for clients or your organization?
This section should provide a clear statement of the issue and the reason(s) you selected it. Your writing should use questions Section 1a and 1b in the tool (Research the Issue …) but need not answer each question in order.
II. Advocacy Goals (Directly from toolkit): State the broad goals and specific objectives for advocacy effort including:
Broad advocacy goals (e.g., meet otherwise unmet needs; reverse or correct a situation; prevent the loss of a valued asset; change public opinion)?

Specific objectives (how much of what by when) (e.g., “By 2020, increase by 50% the public investment in early childhood education.”)?
III. Tactics (Questions directly from Toolkit): Describe the advocacy tactics you will use focusing on research and direct-action tactics. First, select either (1) conduct advocacy research OR (2) Direct action campaign. (This selection should relate to the advocacy goals.) If you chose to research: discuss your plan for that (drawing on the descriiption of advocacy research strategies, Chapter 31). If direct action: describe tactics in a direct-action campaign that you will use (drawing on the list of 20 direct action campaign tactics from Chapter 33. Select no more than three of the 20 tactics).
In this section, be sure to motivate and defend the approach you are proposing. Be clear on how these tactics will help secure your advocacy goals.
IV. Organizational Fit. Reflect on the toolkit Q4: “Review whether the selected advocacy tactics fit the group’s situation and goals (i.e., fits the group’s style, makes use of available resources and allies, minimizes opposition, is flexible, is likely to work).” Is your proposed advocacy approach in keeping with your organization’s situation and goals? Why or why not?

How
The advocacy strategies paper is not an academic paper to be written in APA format. This is a strategies paper, an actionable paper that one can use as a guide to engaging in policy advocacy on the topic of your choosing.
Papers should be 3-4 pages single-spaced. Although APA format is not required, the paper should be organized, logical, and consumable.
Below are some examples of comprehensive advocacy strategies. Note that what you are creating is not this exhaustive. The examples are to provide you with a framework for this type of writing.
HERE IS THE Reflect on the toolkit Q4 – https://ctb.ku.edu/en/advocating-change
NOTE******************************
PLEASE PLEASE READ THE QUESTIONS CAREFULLY AND MEET IT 100 %

Why
As social work leaders, it is important to master various ways of communicating information. An InfoGraphic is a visual way to illustrate information or data. Using basic principles of design, one can utilize images and/or brief text to engage a broader audience or a targeted audience.

What
Select a policy related to your topic/area of interest or practice. Create an InfoGraphic about your identified policy.
Your target audience for the InfoGraphic is the general public. The goal is to educate the public about your policy, its implications, and/or gaps/needs.
Be creative, specific, and clear in illustrating the impact. And, have fun!
NOTE***************
I am big into LGBTQUIA2+, but I am open-minded about other policies. Like expungement laws being unfair. Etc… I am open to anything. Please make this very professional but with very strong creativity.
I have attached examples.

PART ONE: SOcial Problem
Social problem: Briefly and succinctly describe the social problem you are addressing. Remember that the issue needs to be narrow enough for you to apply theory in a critical and constructive manner. For example, homelessness is a broad social issue. Whereas the escalating number of female veterans experiencing homelessness is more specific.
Supporting evidence must be incorporated and cited.
References are required.
