SOW 3230 - Social Work Processes II

This is the second of a three-course practice sequence and focuses the social work knowledge, values and skills required to implement of the planned change process with varied client systems such as individuals, families, groups and communities. A multi-contextual (dimensional) framework is used to examine a wide range of diversity factors (age, class, color, culture, diversity, disability, ethnicity, family structure, gender, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic and marital status, etc.) that not only differentially influence behavior, but also contribute to increased understanding of the unique ways in which people and communities respond to life crises. Appropriate research-based knowledge is considered in relation to the content, process, and outcomes of practice. A 100-hour practicum allowing students to test out classroom learning in the context of a social agency accompanies this course. Only open to social work majors.
