Assignment Content

In response to federal policy and service requirements, health insurance plans are increasingly developing high-deductible insurance policies and narrow networks. These types of policies require the consumer to pay more out-of-pocket. To portray this in a positive light, this trend has been labeled as “consumer-based” to suggest that the consumer must pay more from their own funds and, thus, encourage consumers to make better health care choices. However, this could be labeled as a burden on the consumer.

Which social media outlets does the company use to reach the customer segment? Discuss elements of their campaign.

Examine the customer segment’s response to the company’s social media marketing (e.g., through evaluating user-generated content related to the campaign, sales data for particular products, etc.). Based on that response, how effective are the company’s social media marketing strategies?

Finally, recommend two specific strategies for how the company could more effectively utilize social media to better target its customer segment and increase its competitive advantage in the market.

Support your ideas and findings with descriptions of specific social media campaign examples and consumer and market research.

#648-Models of Grieving

The death of a loved one is a significant event that everyone experiences. An individual’s social environment, including societal and familial cultural factors, may influence how an individual approaches death or grieves the loss of someone else who dies. You can anticipate addressing grief in your social work practice and, therefore, should develop an understanding of the grieving process.

Models of grieving may identify stages through which an individual progresses in response to the death of a loved one; however, these stages do not necessarily occur in lockstep order. People who experience these stages may do so in different order or revisit stages in a circular fashion. Understanding the various ways individuals cope with grief helps you to anticipate their responses and to assist them in managing their grief. Select one model of grieving to address in this assignment.

Addressing the needs of grieving family members can diminish your personal emotional, mental, and physical resources. In addition to developing strategies to assist grieving individuals in crisis, you must develop strategies that support self-care.

In this Assignment, you apply a grieving model to work with families in a hospice environment and suggest strategies for self-care.

Submit a 2–page paper in which you:

Explain how you, as a social worker, might apply the grieving model you selected to your work with families in a hospice environment.

Explain why you selected to use the grieving model you selected versus other models of grief.

Identify components of the grieving model that you think might be difficult to apply to your social work practice. Explain why you anticipate these challenges.

Identify strategies you might use for your own self care as a social worker dealing with grief counseling. Explain why these strategies might be effective.

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