Discussion: Evaluating Policy Implications

Permalink: Savvy Essay Writers./discussion-evalu…y-implications-2/

When developing, implementing, or revising organizational policies, it is important that all potential consequences be considered. Social workers must be particularly sensitive to any negative consequences or unintentional harm the policies might cause for any individual or group.


For this Discussion, review this week’s resources, including the Johnson Family video. Consider the campus’ policies on how sexual assault accusations are addressed. How might the current procedures and policies negatively affect survivors of sexual assault? What changes might you suggest to the campus policies to better protect survivors? Finally, describe how you might evaluate the success of these policy changes.


·      Post an identification of how the current campus policies on sexual assault might negatively affect survivors and an explanation of the changes you might make to these policies that would protect sexual assault survivors.
·      Be sure to reference the Talia Johnson case in your post.

·      Finally, explain how you might evaluate the success of these policy changes.


Support your post with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.

Johnson Family Episode 4

Program Transcript




MALE SPEAKER: There are two things I want you to think about as we go forward, process and possible outcomes.


As I explained on the phone to each of you, the university’s policy in cases like this is for me to give each of you the opportunity to tell your side of the story. This is a university procedure. It does not involve the police. Once I’ve heard both

sides it will be up to me to decide what action to take. Do you understand?


BOTH: Yes.


MALE SPEAKER: Now, possible outcomes. Talia’s claims could be dismissed. However, if her claims are accepted as true Eric could be suspended for a semester, or an entire year, or he could be expelled. This all depends on how the university rules. Am I clear? Are there any questions before we get started?


ERIC: What if you decide she’s lying? What happens to her then?


MALE SPEAKER: I’ve already described the potential outcomes. That’s it.


TALIA: You’re the one who’s lying. You told people we had sex when you raped me.


ERIC: Slut.


BOTH: Liar! Rapist!


MALE SPEAKER: End of conversation. I’ll schedule a meeting next week. Use that time to prepare. Do I make myself clear?
