Review the article, “Empowering newly married women in Iran: A new method of social work intervention that uses a client-directed problem-solving model in both group and individual sessions,”
Write a paper addressing the following questions or prompts:
1. What did you learn from the article about how or what the women gained from the Rahyab model and intervention? What is meant by the women’s “primary learning processes” and “secondary action-oriented processes”? How did those processes relate to the intervention model?
2. Describe and discuss four or five of the major results that the women obtained from the Rahyab model and intervention. Would another practice model or intervention be just as likely to provide these types of results? Find a scholarly research or practice-based article on a similar type of empowerment intervention and discuss how you believe it likely could provide the types of positive results described in the article on the Rahyab model of individual and group sessions. Take into account the vulnerable, oppressed, and marginalized status of the newly married Iranian women.
3. What practice-based research study would you propose to further develop the information and ideas garnered from the research article and why? Describe the method, instrument(s) to be used, sample size, setting, and other important components of the research study that would need to be included to make it clear how the study would be carried out. Include evidence to support your study proposal.
4. Find a policy that relates to the participants of the study, that is, Iranian women (newly married or not), and provide the policy in an attachment with your paper. Discuss how the policy impacts this population, social work, practice, and services and what your remedy would be if the policy negatively impacts either the Iranian women or social work practice or intervention.
