Implications for Social Change

The study seeks to generalize issues pertaining roles, competencies as well as training for the need of PCMH workers in the social society and more importantly the health social workers (Denman et al., 2015). It aims at improving the welfare of the community and focus is on streamlining the avenues on which the communities in the access of the social amenities. It includes many participants for some issues that surround the community. Social workers through the research are informed to work in the best way possible to redeem the communities that are vulnerable to diseases and other social problems that are in the community. It is thus paramount to work on ensuring equity in the community set up in the social arena. It is thus open to the study that any future study that will be in line with information in this research will dig more information to help it develop a nice framework and design to give back to the community. It is eminent that the outcome of the research will help bring a positive change in the communities of focus. The study will help participants alike in getting pretty good knowledge on social change and the impact the change has on their lives and that of the people to serve.

The results from this study have substantial implications for social change and suggest the requirement of school leaders as well as legislators to add more support for the establishment of a comprehensive policy on sexual health education that would aid in alleviating sexual behaviors among youths via standardized ample sexual health education implementation. Studies of this nature have significant implications for social change, in their capacity to solidly inform programs and policies aiming at coming up with sexually healthy and all rounded individuals so as to curb on the risks that accompany negative sexual behaviors which may on many occasions give birth to ill health and mortality. By carrying out this research, I was in a position to validate the relationship between the sexual risk behaviors among youths and the enactment of a wide-ranging sexual health education as authorized by public policy. Also, through this study, I am confident in providing further understanding and put forward other influences like race and gender, and many other factors that are associated with the risky sexual behavior amongst youths in the United States. The social change implications directly notify the implementation of all-inclusive sexual health education policy that will aid in lessening the sexual risk behaviors of youths as well as endorsing the enactment of homogeneous and wide-ranging sexual health education.

Optimistic social change backs the enactment of substantial alterations over time in cultural values, behaviors, and norms. Reasonably, the theoretical groundwork of this research, salutogenic model, is founded on the principles of salutogenic; which is the study of health creating, development, augmenting, and enhancing the mental, physical, and social well-being on an individual basis. According to Campbell (2009), the relationship between constructive health results at the personal (youths) level, organizational (institutions) level, and populace (local policy and state), level highlights the significance of a structured environment and individuals are called upon when to recognize and utilize the resources availed to them in a bit to support the health of the person, society, and the nation as a whole.

Regarding the outcomes of this research, it is highly recommended for homegrown state congresspersons and the administrators from CPS districts to assess the new version of the policy of sexual health education.  Through that, they can ensure the following; Reputable guidelines that enhance the development of an all-round sexually healthy youth adheres. Finally, it would ensure that the policy is suitable in response to various health inequalities among adolescents as well as to make sure the sexual health education policy promotes the continued assessment and improvements that speak out on the emerging behaviors such as un-prescription drug use as supported by the study.

This research and its practicability trustily affiliated with the significance of the statistics. This is because the study findings propose the need to additionally discover the impacts of all-inclusive sexual health education on the risk behaviors of sex among youths. The sexuality of humans is unique to every person, and it is swayed by numerous factors like cultural, social-economical, as well as environmental factors. Youths are products of the environment, and so they are highly influenced by factors in the environment. The selection of other age groups should be investigated to develop an understanding of specific issues that may need to be addressed in the promotion of abstinence until married lifestyle. Abstinence education and marriage outside the heterosexual environment should be evaluated, as well. A complete abstinence education curriculum analysis should be conducted to assess the overall effectiveness of a textbook’s materials, to include the Choosing the Best’s Life abstinence education program.

The study was carried out to imperatively outline the causes of social stratification in the United States of America. Social stratification in the nation has been an issue of concern and so by way of intervention, I chose to get the in-depth information concerning the stratifications in the country and the reasons that have led to society to be divided along stereotypes yet every human being is similar to the other. The study would help in the understanding of the basic parameter that underlines the use of boundaries and the effect the same have on the development of the country in the social settings, political phenomena and the economic aspects of the nation not forgetting the impact the same have on the individual lives. Social stratification is the source of trouble and afflictions of the statesmen as it has made poverty levels to grow in the nation and also resulted to the heated enmity and animosity that has been brought up by racial differences. The research seeks to highlight the impact economic segregations have in the nation and more so the economic situation of the people. The study also managed to condemn some aspects in the American society which have been brought up by the system and the stereotypes to malign the progress of the nation.

 

For Future Practice

This research and its practicability trustily affiliated with the significance of the statistics. This is because the study findings propose the need to additionally discover the impacts of all-inclusive sexual health education on the risk behaviors of sex among youths. The sexuality of humans is unique to every person, and it is swayed by numerous factors like cultural, social-economical, as well as environmental factors. Social stratification is a worldwide phenomenon in all human society. According to Button (2014), social inequality can occur either with the help of a hierarchy of individuals or without a ladder creation among societies. Social inequality can be seen as a form of social hierarchy, or it may also be called social differentiation as every society treats women and men unequally. A social inequality establishes itself in the form of classes where individuals are ranked based on their status is called social stratification. Social stratification is usually a group phenomenon. The reasoning obtained from Ogburn and Nimkoff is that stratification is the process where individuals are grouped in a less enduring hierarchy of social status.

A definition from Melvin Tumin is that social stratification is an arrangement of social groups into classes which are unequal based on power, social evaluation, property acquisition, and mental gratification. Societies have been from time immemorial been socially stratified, and the gap between the poor and the rich widens by day (Bashir et al., 2013). This paper will endeavor to study social stratification in general and the history of social stratification. The paper will also conclude the findings of the research conducted on social stratification and compare both the past and current data collected from societies based on social stratification. The paper will then conclude by giving recommendations on how to go about social stratification to help reduce the gap between the haves and the don’t haves.

Citizens from the United States population and college students made up the most of those who responded to the survey in various spheres and areas of interest so as to allow the process of gathering information to be easy and way manageable (Henn & Nick, 2014). They helped in the provision of the relevant information as per the study focus which helped the survey to have credible information for presentation after analysis and preparation of the fact. The respondents provided the research enough time to carry out its activities that were limited to the scope of the study in the most cordial way possible. This study will add more knowledge to the current literature by educating how inequalities experienced by youths my impact on the sexual jeopardy behavior they engage in. The variation based on health facing youths can be attended at as part of a comprehensive sexual health education program that incorporates same and complete sexual health education.
