The practice situations encountered by social workers are varied, thus we need to draw from multiple theories to understand these situations and to see the potential for change.

A primary goal of this course is to expand student understanding of diverse theories of human behavior. Such theories help to explain behavior across environmental contexts and help us organize complex information. The practice situations encountered by social workers are varied, thus we need to draw from multiple theories to understand these situations and to see the potential for change. The Theory “Trading Cards” assignment is a group assignment that requires groups to create and present “trading cards” (i.e., information sheets) on four (4) diverse theories of human behavior over the course of the semester. Students will work in groups to research and create their “trading cards” (be sure to address the requirements listed below). During the appropriate course sessions, each group will informally present their trading cards to help teach their classmates about the theory and its use in social work. The due date for each trading card (see “Course Outline” in the syllabus) Theory name (alternative names if they exist) 2. Primary theorist(s) 3. Year(s) in which theory was developed 4. Purpose of theory 5. Key stages or tenets of theory 6. Definitions of any key terms 7. Any figures related to theory (or that would help explain the theory) 8. Strengths of theory a. Usefulness for social work practice b. How does it help social workers understand human behavior? c. How has theory been used? 9. Weaknesses of theory a. List any critiques of theory b. List any recommendations (e.g., is there a related theory that should be considered?) 10. Theory-related resources 11. In-text citations 12. Reference list 13. Created by: [your group]To

Week 1 Assignment
Instruction 1: Provide an account of the way in which the paradigm you discuss in assignment 2 informs the social phenomenon, social problem, or population that you are focused on. Use the theoretical paradigm to analyze the social problem. State the assumptions of the theoretical framework and posit one or two research questions based on this framework. Discuss the limitations of the paradigm. Describe what additional knowledge gaps need to be filled to understand the social problem or the concerns of the population.
