· Review the Walden University Library resources listed in the Learning Resources.

· Then conduct a library search for an empirical study (i.e., one based on observed phenomena using the scientific method) focused on one of the groups, above, and the unique psychosocial factors or issues a social worker should be aware of when working with that group.
