SOCW 6090 - Psychopathology for Social Work


(5 cr.) Students in this course, in particular, are prepared to identify and assess problems in biopsychosocial functioning. Throughout this course, students collect, organize, and interpret client data and use it to identify areas of strength and areas that require additional intervention and support. Students examine how race, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion, and age serve to affect clients’ level of functioning and/or how they present themselves. With an emphasis on ethical practice, students use this information to design appropriate interventions to help clients to meet identified goals.
