  Theory and Research Related to Social Issue

By now, you have had the opportunity to explore some of the  fundamental elements of your social issue of interest. In this written  assignment, you will now focus your attention on identifying and  analyzing the scope of scholarly literature that addresses the social  issue. Specifically, you will access the Ashford University Library, in  addition to other scholarly content from previous coursework that might  be pertinent (e.g., textbooks, research articles, etc.), to find sources  that examine theoretical perspectives and relevant research that  pertain to your selected topic. 

This assignment will require that you develop a research-based report  demonstrating theory and research methodology related to your social  issue.

In your paper Describe two to three theories that relate to your topic area in  some manner. To accommodate the broad spectrum of social issues that  might be explored, aim to find theories that attempt to explain some the  following areas: The reason(s) for why the social issue exists or persists Factors that contribute to it Social, environmental, political, or economic considerations that underlie it Emerging alternative viewpoints that clarify the issue Critically evaluate the theories described, taking into account  their benefits and limitations, as well as how health and human service  organizations might use them to better understand the scope of the  issue. Describe two to three examples of research studies that have  explored the issue. These studies must come from their original source;  do not rely on literature reviews that summarize research conducted by  others. Studies can examine any area related to the issue with the  exception of interventions, as this will be addressed in the Week Three  assignment. Examples include: Exploring the social issue’s impact on a specific group Identifying relationships between variables (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
