Social Work Practice 1

This course establishes the generalist perspective as the framework for the practice sequence. It provides information on the historical base of social work with a strong emphasis on the underlying values and ethics of the social work profession with a respect for human diversity (culture, race, class, religion, sexual orientation, gender, differential ability, etc.). The emphasis is on learning the interviewing skills involved in doing a psychosocial assessment and understanding the phases of the helping process. Differential theoretical constructs, assessment and intervention skills used in direct practice with individuals and families are examined
