Human Service Theories
This is a Discussion Post
Selecting a theoretical framework for your Final Project can be a helpful yet potentially prohibiting step in the research process. On one hand, the framework can
sharpen the focus and consequently increase clarity of the research topic. On the other hand, if you limit your research to concentrate on one theory for your
theoretical framework, you might exclude theories that can enrich your research. Thus it is beneficial to review multiple theories to obtain a full perspective of your
research topic in building a theoretical framework.
Provide a brief description of two human service theories you selected, and explain how they provide a theoretical framework for your Final Project of child
welfare. Choose one traditional and one contemporary human services theory that might provide a foundation for your theoretical framework of your term paper. Be
specific, and provide examples.
