Hansell’s Motivation Theory. What makes a theory useful is the ability of the practitioner to use the elements of the theory (called premises or postulates) in practice and research. These applications can empower the human service worker by providing added information, insight, and perspective regardless of the career level. Theory-into-practice is a forerunner of best practices, where the evaluation of program and practice results leads to efficiencies and effectiveness. After reading Chapter 4 in the text, paying special attention to Hansell’s motivation theory, analyze this theory in terms of its application to client problems/needs. Consider the following:
§ Can the “seven attachments” be used as a checklist to understanding (discovering) a client’s wellbeing or problems?
§ What are the inferred implications for a human service worker’s interactions with the client system?
§ How does Hansell’s theory support the idea to “search for practical solutions”?

Privatization. Among the various factors impacting the Health and Human Services (HHS) programs, increased costs, such as personnel, equipment, and facilities, may be leading considerations in a program manager’s plans and priorities. After becoming more familiar with the concept of privatization, identify the advantages of engaging in privatization and what is required to actually carry this out.
The following questions may help direct your reading:
§ Who initiates privatization of a HHS service / program?
§ What are the typical program information requirements?
§ Who can approve a privatization effort?

Budget Allocations. Help, human services, and care are provided in many formats. However, to be considered under the umbrella of health and human services, the help must be provided by some type of formal organization. The Federal Government, the major provider of social welfare benefits, allocates 90% of the Federal budget for social programs. There are over 300 programs situated in eight public health agencies and three human service agencies. In order to grasp the significance of the above information you are asked to locate information that identifies the amount of budget allocated to the HHS budget for the fiscal years 2011, 2012, and 2013. After examining the budgets, and noting the changes, what conclusions do you draw? Also discuss the inferences you draw in terms of providing needed HHS care. Post your 300 word discussion and respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
