There have been many changes to American families over the past decades. In today’s society, issues such as divorce, cohabitation, and children out of wedlock are hardly uncommon. However, there are some family issues, such as family violence and child abuse, that are much more disturbing.
The Discussion for this week will focus on social problems that face families in your community.
Choose and describe one social problem that faces families in your community.
What, if anything, has been done to address the problem in your community?
Has the problem gotten better or worse over time? Explain.
Discuss how you, as a human services professional, can influence this problem.
