Project #89926 - HUMAN SERVICES

 

I LIVE IN SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA and the DISCUSSION SHOULD NOT BE OVER 300 WORDS IT IS DUE 24 HOURS FROM NOW

State-Level Challenges

 

In the roles of social change agent, leader, and advocate, human services professionals have many responsibilities. At the state level, multiple standards, guidelines, laws, and regulations may pose challenges to human services professions. As a human services professional, you should be aware not only of your responsibilities, but also of any state-level challenges you may encounter when attempting to fulfill your responsibilities. 

 

To prepare for this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources. Select a state-level challenge related to human services professions and/or the roles and responsibilities of human services professionals. This should be a challenge you or the profession might face when attempting to address issues at the state level, such as funding or available resources. Then, think about why addressing the challenge is important to the profession, as well as what difference the challenge’s resolution or improvement might make.

 

With these thoughts in mind:

 

Post by Day 4 the name of your state or region, as well as a brief description of the state-level challenge you selected. Explain why addressing this challenge is important to the profession and what difference its resolution or improvement might make.

 

Note: Put your challenge in the subject line of your posting. You will be asked to respond to someone with a different challenge.
