There are competing models of human services approaches. Many of these models are examined in this module. Using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research these models further.
Demonstrate your understanding of two competing models by responding to the following:
Discuss the Rational-Legal model with relevant examples of two types of human services agencies currently using this approach.
Discuss the differences between the human services approach and the Political-Economy model. You should emphasize the influence each approach has on direct service delivery.
Discuss the primary role of nonprofit agencies in human services.
Your response should rely upon at least two sources from professional literature. This may include the Argosy University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
