  • Causal       Analysis: Specify multiple factors that cause the problem       and specific, multiple consequences of the problem, on the individual, familial,       community and systemic levels.
  • Ideological       analysis:  Specify varying ideological viewpoints discussed in SW 302 of different stakeholder       groups related to the problem definition (e.g. liberal, conservative),       and how these points of view would impact approaches taken to address the       problem using position papers from ideologically affiliated organizations       such as think tanks to support your answer; and, 
  • Gainers and       losers analysis: Specify       what stakeholders and target populations tend to gain or lose       financially, politically, etc. if problem or issue is addressed and if it       is left insufficiently addressed
