Risk Factors, Influences, and Prevention

Please help provide two outlines for the top of Major Risk Factors and Influences.

1. Analyze major risk factors faced by the youth of today.
Evaluate societal, community, and school factors that influence children and adolescents, and assess the interactions between these systems.
Analyze innovative advocacy approaches in working with children and adolescents, and evaluate research-based best practices related to this.
Examine the legal and ethical factors when working with children and adolescents, and identify legal resources available.
Examine the diverse and multicultural needs of children and adolescents, and evaluate resources available to meet these needs.
Synthesize the information from the two course texts and other course research and readings. Create a paper discussing the major risk factors faced by the youth of today. I'm thinking suicide. Discuss the current influential factors and how they can be addressed by the various participating systems.

2. The second outline will address Risk Factors, Influences, and Prevention Strategies.

Choose a current issue that impacts the youth in your current area or field of interest (I'm thinking sex trafficking). Discuss the aetiology of this issue along with prevention strategies that address each component of this particular risk factor.
Each section should:
Analyze innovative advocacy approaches in working with children and adolescents, and evaluate research-based best practices related to this.
Analyze the biological, social, and cultural factors that influence children and adolescents.
Evaluate societal, community, and school factors that influence children and adolescents, and assess the interactions between these systems.

Examine the diverse and multicultural needs of children and adolescents, and evaluate resources available to meet these needs.
Select a current issue that impacts the youth in a current area or field of interest, and examine the root causes.
Assess prevention strategies that address each component of the selected risk factor.
