Answer these questions as the last section of your paper:
1. What are the implications of these types of situations for social work? How can social service agencies change or improve their mission to help people like those in this film? Apply at least one concept from your textbook to help support your answer.
2. Pick one of the families/individuals in the film. Explore some options that the family/person might have, here in Central Florida, to move in the direction of their goals, and provide a concrete action plan. Provide explanation for why you make each suggestion and why you think it would work. Focus on applying a generalist model of social work practice, and using a strengths-based perspective.
