In order to successfully address social justice problems, social workers must have the knowledge and skills to locate, access, analyze, and interpret public policy.
By successfully completing this assignment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following EPAs and general practices:
Competency 5: Engage in Policy Practice
C5.GP.A: Identify social policy at the local, state, and federal level that impacts well-being, service delivery, and access to social service.

Assignment Descriiption
Based on your analysis of the social justice problem in the assignment from Unit 2, select a currently enacted federal policy that is currently a law to analyze using the United States Congress website, Congress.gov. It must also address the problem that affects your chosen diverse cultural group (for example, based on race, religion, disabilities, gender orientation, socioeconomic status, or access to services). This will be the policy you analyze for the entire the course project. Be sure to incorporate constructs that have been covered in this course into your analysis. You will compile all parts of the course project in Unit 10, so as you receive feedback for each assignment, revise your work as necessary.
Assignment Instructions
To complete this assignment, select a federal policy from Congress.gov that targets the form of oppression and discrimination you described in Unit 2 (for example, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Veterans Millennium Healthcare Act, Affordable Care Act (ACA), Adoption and Safe Families Act, Medicare, Medicaid, Temporary Aid to Needy Families Act, or Social Security Act). Then, complete the following:
Describe the policy you have chosen and its connection to the social justice problem that was the focus of the previous assignment. This policy must be enacted—in other words, it must be passed legislation.
Describe the purpose of this policy.
Describe the programs and services that are provided through the policy.
Connect the policy to the social justice problem you selected by giving a brief descriiption of the problem. Is it a new problem, something that has recently arisen, or an old problem that never got resolved?
Describe the historical issues and context that lead to the creation of the social problem and policy development.
Include information about the voting outcomes for the policy and the legislative leaders who influenced the policy historically and in the present.
Include the impact of these historical features have had on the policy’s implementation.

This week we continue learning about group dynamics, specifically, goals, norms, disruptive behaviors and communication. This week’s discussion post contains 4 parts for you to address.
Part I: In chapters 4 and 5, we learned about disruptive behavior types in group settings If you were a group facilitator, which type of disruptive behavior as listed in chapter 4 do you feel would be the most challenging for you to address if a group member presented with this behavior. Explain why and then think of two strategies you could employ to address the disruptive behavior.
Part II; In chapter 5, we learned about defense mechanism and how we sometimes default to these mechanism to avoid unwanted feelings. Of the different types of defense mechanisms, which defense mechanism resonated with you the most. Describe the defense mechanism type that you choose and explain how this mechanism functions to keep away unwanted feelings. Then describe two effective communication strategies that a person can employ instead of this defense mechanism.
Part III. As we learned this week, constructive feedback is essential to effective communication.
This week’s other assigned reading from Hardavella, et al. (2017), describes very distinct models for giving feedback. If someone were to give you feedback on your performance which model would you prefer they use? Be sure to give an overview of the model of feedback and describe why you would choose it.( I addd the file for additional eading low

Choosing the Right Leader Scenario (fictional): The Taleo family has been in th

Choosing the Right Leader
Scenario (fictional): The Taleo family has been in the medical products or cosmetic products company (your choice) for over 50 years. They have always had a family member as president of (your company name of choice). As the current president steps down, the founders’ remaining family members are not inclined or are unable to take over the business and have called you in as their consultant to perform the executive search. They know this will be a challenge based on several changes that may need to occur soon to continue their business successfully.
The industry is beginning to change. The competition is switching to using blockchain ledger technology that shares data within a network in sequential order with a timestamp—like a database, but encrypted. The competition has also been increasingly automating their production line. With the increasing competition, the company you are consulting for realizes that the business may not survive without changing to these technologies. This change will mean laying off some personnel, and this will be the first time in its history that this company has had to contend with significant layoffs; in the past, layoffs were not necessary since growth outpaced the need to lay off workers. With no family member currently available to lead the company, the company must do an intensive search for an individual suited to their industry with the right expertise, education, and personality to lead the company into a new era.
The company culture remains the same, with an industry reputation for reliability. Most employees pass their jobs on to someone else residing in the local community by referring them for the job, so all employees feel like one extended family. They expect little change now. Although their market has been predominantly in the United States (U.S.), with little or no diversity in the workforce, they are increasingly getting inquiries from Asian countries since competitors’ prices have increased substantially. Currently, there are 300 employees in this small Southeastern U.S. city, though the salaries and benefits have always been on par with the industry salaries elsewhere in the country. Their belief in the customer first, taking the time to get things done in a precise manner, and honesty have been hallmarks of this family business.
In light of this company’s likely future demands and needs, and as this company’s consultant hired to do the executive search, you will address checklist items in a presentation.
Checklist:
Identify the industry and the name of the company (your choice) based on your choice of either a medical products orcosmetic products company, and identify the products the company provides.
Summarize the problem and the company’s culture as presented in the scenario. Describe any changes that might be necessary about the type of personality the new president will need.
Explain the traits and personality factors that should be considered when selecting the next president using the reading from Chapter 5. Include the Big Five personality traits, Holland’s typology, and at least one other personality theory in your response (you may use the Internet, but provide the source URL).
Explain how the personality you described previously of the new president would benefit the employees and the success of the company going forward.
Submit your 8- to 10-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with no more than five bulleted items per slide, in 24-point font, with either: (1) an audio presentation and speaker notes below each slide or
(2) a presentation without audio but with speaker notes below each slide.
Explanations of the bulleted points should be placed below each slide in the notes section. If you submit an audio presentation with notes, the bulleted points should be explained in the audio and notes and be audible, intelligible, and professional.
Your presentation should have additional title and reference slides. Be sure to check your presentation for correct spelling and grammar, and then submit it to the competency assessment Dropbox. The title of your presentation will be: Finding a New Leader for (your choice) Company.
