Project #86189 - Human Services

  • Application: Impacts on Change

    In a perfect society, there would never be a need for change. The world, however, is imperfect and could potentially change in many positive ways. Many factors influence change, and these factors vary based on society’s diverse culture. To understand the process of change and its impact on society, developmental theories are often used. Likewise, systems theory and components of systems can influence change and the change process. All of this information is intended to empower the human services professions’ roles as social change agents, leaders, and advocates.

    To prepare for this Assignment, review this week’s Learning Resources. Consider the issue you selected for your Final Project. Think about the impact of developmental theories and systems theory, as well as how they might be used to address the issue.

    The Assignment (24 pages):

    • Briefly describe your professional or societal issue.
    • Explain the change you think is needed to address the issue and factors that might influence that change.
    • Explain how developmental theory might be applied to bring about the change. Use specific examples of how developmental theory might address the factors you identified.
    • Explain how systems theory and its components might be applied to bring about the change. Include specific systems and components of systems that might address the factors you identified.
    • Explain some of the opportunities and challenges that you might encounter in fostering and implementing the change.
    This is my societal issue: Recidivism and I started on the intro..

    Recidivism refers to a person’s relapse into criminal behavior, often after a person receives sanctions for a previous crime (National Institute of Justice, n.d.). Recidivism is determined by a rearrest, reconviction, or going back to jail after being released in a three-year period. In 2005, out of 404,638 prisoners in 30 states that were released, 67.8 percent were rearrested in three years and 76.6 percent were rearrested in five years (Bureau of Justice, n.d.).
