Prior to beginning work on this journal, watch Faith Based Initiative /Social Service and Congregational Research Part 1 (Links to an external site.) and Faith Based Initiative /Social Service Research Part 2 (Links to an external site.).

Pick a particular case study discussed in Chapter 12 and explain why the faith-based intervention was successful. Determine what conditions would cause a human service professional to integrate faith-based interventions into the counseling strategy. It is wise to stay abreast of what services are available in your area; locate 5 faith-based agencies in your area or region and explain briefly what they do and for which populations. Your Learning Activity should consist of approximately 350 to 500 words.
