Empowerment theory is appropriate to use when a social worker engages with a marginalized population. A population may feel marginalized because of a perceived lack of control over their lives. They may feel that they have a limited voice or sense of power because they are seen negatively by society merely because of their membership in a particular social group (e.g., gay, lesbian, poor, racial minority, or differently abled).
One way that social workers share research—on marginalized populations and others—is through organizational conferences and meetings. The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) sponsors the Annual Program Meeting (APM), where social work educators from all over the United States convene every year. The APM offers several types of sessions, and one of them is a poster presentation. During this session, viewers walk through the exhibit hall and interact with the presenters who are standing by their posters.
For this Assignment, imagine that your poster has been accepted and that you will be presenting it in the exhibit hall. Your poster presentation is based on your potential doctoral capstone topic and on a marginalized population. Because of the population, you are using empowerment theory to frame your topic.
To prepare:
Review this article from the Learning Resources: “Ten Simple Rules for a Good Poster Presentation” by Erren and Bourne.
For samples or templates of poster presentations, browse the website noted in the Learning Resources.
Locate an empirical research article in the library about your topic or problem and a marginalized population.
By Day 7
Submit your poster and your Kaltura video showing you presenting your poster.
