Assignment: Human Services
There are many different types of human services providers and agencies serving clients. An understanding of the different theoretical models to these services will make you familiar with how clients are served in various agency settings, to prepare you for what you might encounter in nonprofit agencies.
In this assignment, you will explore the different approaches to human services delivery. You will also research the roles of nonprofit agencies.
There are competing models of human services approaches. Many of these models are examined in this module. Using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research these models further.
Demonstrate your understanding of two competing models by responding to the following:
• Discuss the Rational-Legal model with relevant examples of two types of human services agencies currently using this approach.
• Discuss the differences between the human services approach and the Political-Economy model. You should emphasize the influence each approach has on direct service delivery.
• Discuss the primary role of nonprofit agencies in human services.
The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.
