SWK 303 SWK Practice II: Family & Groups

This second of 3 practice course offerings will introduce students to the generalist social work method of practice with families and groups (mezzo 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 involving families and groups. Students will already have been exposed to practices with individuals through Practice I (micro) and will also be exposed in Practice III to practice within communities and organizations (macro practice). 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.
