CREATE A CASE STUDY
Activity Instructions

To support your case study, you should use the databases in the Capella library to review and select 3 – 4 sources (peer-reviewed journal articles). You will also use at least two government and/or human services websites that may inform you about community demographics and how the problem is currently being addressed. The Neukrug textbook should be consulted for guidance related to the scope of human services and ethical issues.
You will build on this initial work during Week 6 of this course.
