Choose two major theories of deviance. They can be theories we covered within this course, or you may choose a theory that was not presented (there are many). Hence complete a research paper covering both theories – present the histories, main ideas, examples of how they explain deviant behaviors, etc. Also compare and contrast the two theories. Create your own example of deviance and apply both theories to your example. Using your example, identify which social work interventions you could use to help the person in need.
(if you are covering all topics in the directions, you should have no issues meeting this minimum requirement). APA format is required. The cover page and reference page do not count towards the minimum requirement of 6 pages.
Use Correct APA Format. Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite them in-line. Also, only use sources within the five-year range.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
