Defining Social Problems
In this course, Design and Evaluation of Programs and Projects, you examine aspects of program planning and evaluation while also engaging in a Practicum Experience. As you do this, you may notice the differing terminologies and approaches that are applied in various circumstances. For instance, you are likely quite familiar with the phrase “health problem” from your previous coursework and professional practice. This Discussion looks at understanding “social problems” as part of a framework for program design. What is the distinction between these terms? Why is it important to notice this divergence?
Problem analysis is a cornerstone for effective program planning and should be conducted at the outset. With this first Discussion, begin to pay close attention to the language and perspectives that will inform your program planning work as you move forward in the course.
 

To prepare:

  • Consider      the following scenario:
    • Data from       the Appalachian region show lower numbers of women receiving mammograms       compared to the national average, indicating a need to increase use of       this procedure in this area. However, the data also show that women from       this region are reluctant to participate because of their attitudes       toward mammograms (Royse & Dignan, 2009).
  • Review      Chapter 1 of Designing and Managing Programs to be sure      you have a clear understanding of the sequencing of program design and      evaluation, as well as the importance of each element of this process.
  • Then,      review Chapter 3. Analyze the scenario above in light of the concepts      presented:
    • Why is it       important to avoid stating the problem as a solution?
    • How does       this scenario illustrate a “social problem”?
    • What       responses to the problem analysis framework questions (pp. 45–49) could       you develop given the information provided?

By tomorrow Tuesday 11/27/18 at 2 pm, write a minimum of 550 words essays in APA format with at least 3 references from the list of REQUIRED READINGS below. Include the level one headers as numbered below:

Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following:

1) Describe three key insights or strategies you would share with your team if you were engaged in planning for a program related to the scenario described above.

2) How do you expect that your intended approach to developing an understanding of social problems could affect program planning? Be sure to support your response.

· Chapter 1, “Contemporary Issues in Social Services Program Planning and Administration”

The first chapter of this text describes current issues related to designing and managing programs. By asking the reader to briefly analyze an existing program, the authors lay out the topics that will be addressed in the book-and throughout this course.

· Chapter 3, “Understanding Social Problems”

Chapter 3 emphasizes critical considerations for developing an understanding of a social problem that may differ from how this has been approached by service providers in the past-including the importance of beginning with problem analysis early in the planning process and focusing on understanding the problem rather than generating solutions.
