MSW-6005: Interpret Current Issues of Power, Privilege, and Oppression

 Instructions

Your assignment this week is to prepare a white paper.

Identify a current social issue that involves the concepts of power, privilege, and/or oppression of an individual or group of individuals within society. Explain the social work skills needed to provide culturally-relevant treatment services to a client system (individual, family, or group) and the significant considerations a social worker must be cognizant of when providing treatment services. Investigate any related government policies that may influence your explanation.

Examples may include working with a transgender individual who planned on military service but now faces a ban on enlistment, or a DACA student unable to continue college because of current immigration policies. Points will be assigned to reflect the depth of thinking displayed, resources identified, and integration of social constructs and knowledge of cultural considerations in outlining treatment planning for the client system.

Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included.

Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages
