discuss the concept of resilience, identify a theory, and apply the theory to a social problem

For this Assignment, you are to utilize the knowledge learned related to applying theories to individuals, families, and groups. You will discuss the concept of resilience, identify a theory, and apply the theory to a social problem.

Please respond to the following:

  • Resiliency is a complex concept that is much more than just surviving or getting through a bad experience. Discuss the meaning of resiliency as it relates to individuals, families, and groups.
  • Identify and discuss one specific social problem experienced by individuals, families, or groups that requires some degree of resilience to overcome (i.e., foster care, homelessness, divorce).
  • Identify and discuss one theory that you have learned about. Explore whether or not the theory can be used with individuals, families, and/or groups.
  • Using the theory you identified above, explain how that theory can be used to understand and promote resiliency associated with the social problem you identified.
