SOCW 6060 - Social Work Theory and Practice


(5 cr.) This foundation course is designed to provide students with an overview of theories and intervention methods for generalist social work practice. Students explore the theoretical constructs and applications of various approaches to working with clients. The emphasis of the course is on the development of strengths based on person-in-environment perspectives, ecological systems theory, problem-solving skills, and person-centered methods. The focus is on the importance of choosing approaches that are compatible with the client’s cultural and ethnic background. The students integrate multiple sources of knowledge and models to interview, assess, and respond empathetically when working with individuals, families, groups, communities, and organizations.
