SOCW 6060 - Social Work Theory and Clinical Practice
This course is designed to provide students with an overview of theories, models, and intervention methods for clinically informed advanced generalist social work practice. Students explore the theories and models for application to working with clients. The emphasis of the course is to understand the assumptions of theories and models and how they guide social work assessment, intervention, and practice evaluation. In addition, students evaluate the strengths and limitations of the various theories, with specific consideration to compatibility of a theory with a client’s diverse background and to social work values. Students integrate multiple sources of knowledge to critically evaluate a theory or model’s applicability to social work practice.
