Use this textbook - Cummins, L. K., Byers, K. V., Pedrick, L. (01/2011). Policy Practice for Social Workers: New Strategies for a New Era, Updated Edition, 1st Edition.

In this assignment, you will discuss some of the ethical underpinnings of policy issues, including the potential for unintended or unequal outcomes for various constituencies impacted by the policy.

Tasks:

On the basis of readings and research, write a 3- to 4-page paper responding to the following:

• Explain why you think ethics matter in policy development. Identify the ethical considerations that must be taken into account when drafting or designing a policy.

• Explain how leaders go about making decisions when the principles and norms surrounding an issue conflict with each other.

• Research a social policy that is of interest to you. Use resources from professional literature in your research. Professional literature may include the University online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov). The policy can be one that has resulted in legislative action (such as the creation of new laws or regulations as a result of advocacy work), or it can be in the development cycle.

Discuss the ethical considerations associated with the policy, including differences between the intended and actual impacts of the policy. Discuss who is or might be impacted by the policy and what the impacts might be on each group.
