Social problem analysis

Use a reference list that includes a minimum of at least 5 items (Choose: peer reviewed journal articles, books, the Encyclopedia of Social Work and/or specified electronic sources identified by the professor – if the domain extension is not one of the following [i.e., “.gov,” or “.edu,”] this professor will have to approve the website as a reference for this assignment. ONLY some “.org” domain names provide information that is assuredly objective enough to be cited in a paper as a source of reliable data).
