Programmatic Social Work Intervention
In this final paper, students are asked to develop a programmatic social work intervention, which will help clients cope with loss. Using case material from the previous assignment (files will be uploaded), students’ personal experiences, as appropriate, or another particular category of loss, (i.e. bereavement of widows, parents who have lost children, survivors of violence or natural disasters, loss through a specific illness or disability, retirement or divorce) briefly define and explore the category of loss. Research the category of loss that is defined. How normally is this loss experienced? Are there cultural, gender, societal or diversity influences? What is the professional caregiver role in this situation? What knowledge is needed to design appropriate, culturally sensitive interventions? What theories influence the intervention strategies? What modality of support would you choose for this intervention? Individual, family, group or community work? Give reasons for your choice. What supports would you look for in the life space of the grieving individual? This is a research/practice paper focused on the development of a program that might help many individuals deal with the particular category of loss. This is to be written using APA format. At least five professional literature sources are to be cited for this paper.
