CASE STUDY # 6

An enlisted man in the Air Corps had some previous experience as a private pilot. After

a disagreement with his wife, he decided to punish her by committing suicide.

Choosing the most dramatic method he could think of, he took off in a large,

unattended aircraft and made several passes at the local river, each time pulling up

before he plunged in. Very soon, all other aircrafts were diverted to other cities, and

the local control tower was concentrating on trying to persuade him to change his

mind. He finally agreed, but then he discovered that although he knew how to take off,

he did not know how to land the unfamiliar plane. After some tense interchanges with

the tower control, however, he managed to get the plane down. When the military

police arrived at the plane, he found himself unable to remember his name or anything

about his identity, his present situation, or the events leading up to it.

Discussion 1-week 11- Policies and the influence of Values

Discussion 1-week 11- Policies and the influence of Values.

 Discussion 1-week 11- Policies and the influence of Values

Ideology, politics, and the influence of values often override evidence-based policy. When there is evaluation conflict, a policy advocate must be prepared to defend his/her reasons for wanting to implement a policy. Because almost all proposed policies are circumscribed by politics (for reasons brought up by Jansson throughout the course when discussing the subtleties of policy implementation), you should be prepared for some conflict, ranging from having your research ignored, to having the accuracy of your data questioned, to having your personal values brought into question.

In this Discussion, you consider the assertion that the evaluation of specific policies is often strongly influenced by values. You also examine and evaluate ways to mitigate evaluation conflict to defend the feasibility of your policy.

By Day 3

Post a response to Jansson’s assertion that evaluating specific policies is strongly influenced by values with respect to the case of the evaluation of special services. How do the values of evaluation conflict adhere to social work values? What practices would you use to defend the feasibility of and effectiveness of your evidence-based policy?
