SWK 613 Social Work with Children and Families (3 credits)

Hours: 3 classroom + 0 lab/studio
Prerequisite(s): Admission to MSW program.
Taught: Spring and summer
Social Work Practice with Children and Families is an advanced practice course. It is expected that students will have a foundation in human development; interviewing and communication skills, and basic skills in planning, implementing and evaluating social work interventions. The overarching goal is to prepare students for effective and responsible practice with children, adolescents and families. Given the fluid interplay between childhood, adolescence and family, the course will also explore key concepts related to the family life-stage of adolescence and clinical collaboration with parents and families. This course will take a biopsychosocial perspective to explore more specific knowledge and clinical practice with children, adolescents, and families. Special attention will be given to clinical interventions and treatment modalities related to treating children, adolescents, and families.
