SWK 302 SWK Practice I: Individuals

This first of 3 practice course offerings will introduce students to the generalist social work method of practice with individuals (micro practice). It will include training in the strength-based, solution-focused problem solving approach, encompassing the skills of client engagement, data-collection, assessment, planning, intervention, evaluation and termination. The overall purpose of the course is to help students develop social work knowledge and skills in translating social work practice philosophy into sustainable, ethical social work in diverse situations. Students will also be exposed to practices with families and small groups (mezzo practice) in Practice II as well as practice within communities and organizations (macro practice) in Practice III. Students will participate in a junior practicum experience during this semester which fulfills the institutional requirement for the junior internship. The development of an integrated biblical model of social work delivery will be explored. 3 credits
