How do social workers practice within diverse populations, such as those including single parents and the LGBTQ community (as were noted in the readings this week) in the military? Programs do exist within the military to help address the unique needs of such populations. However, you may find that new programs could further address the needs of marginalized groups. In this Discussion, you respond to an issue presented in your reading and develop an effective program to confront that issue.
To prepare for this Discussion, read the articles listed in this week’s Learning Resources. Then, choose a population addressed in one of the articles on which to focus.
