Colorado State Global Campus Crisis Communication Plans Question



In 1954, Abraham Maslow created a model that has been used to identify the importance of satisfying needs in human development and growth. The National Organization for Human Services (NOHS) annual conference in your region (WNWOHS) is coming up soon and you are determined to co-present with a faculty member in your program. The faculty member agrees! Now it is time to write up the proposal to submit to WNWOHS. Address your topic, that summarizes Maslow’s theory and how it can be used to assist other human service professionals for optimal service delivery.

Your paper should address the following:

  1. Who was Abraham Maslow? Describe briefly.
  2. What was his major contribution to the field of psychology?
  3. How can Maslow’s theory be used to assist human service professionals in providing care, such as abused and neglected children, natural disaster survivors, and homeless persons, for example.
  4. Explain why you find Maslow’s theory to be important so to the human services when working with clients.

Be creative and have fun with this written proposal of your presentation. Good luck!

Your proposal should be 2-3 pages in length and conform to APA guidelines in the CSU Global Writing Center (Links to an external site.). Include at least two scholarly references in addition to the course textbook to support your analysis and position. The CSU Global Library (Links to an external site.) is a good place to find these reference.



Please write a 250-word paragraph on:

Review the various ‘perspectives’ used in human service delivery that are included in this week’s reading assignments.  Choose one of the perspectives and share a scenario where the perspective can be applied and how the human services professional may be able to assist. 

For example, the hierarchical needs perspective states that basic needs to be met before the next level of needs can be attained.  A client who has lost their home due to a natural disaster would need assistance with housing (physiological level) before they can feel security and stability (safety level).   In this scenario, the human services professional can assist by connecting the client to temporary housing that can be used until the client is able to achieve a more permanent solution.  The Red Cross, a local shelter, church, or other community resources may be helpful in this scenario.  The human services professional may also help connect the client with family that could assist.

Your initial posting should be 250-500 words and must be submitted by Thursday, midnight (MT), of this week. By Sunday at midnight (MT), respond to two or more of your classmates’ initial posts in one of the following ways:

The perspective is “situational perspective”.
