FSW 623 Social Work Advanced Practice I (3)

Advanced social work practice builds on the foundation of social work practice I and social work practice II. Consistent with the field of social work, and the Family Studies and Social Work department, course content seeks to facilitate knowledge and competency in working with diverse children and families especially poor, oppressed, racial and ethnic minorities, gay and lesbian and other at-risk children and family populations. Content includes practice with individuals, children, families, communities and larger systems. Advanced social work practice will utilize an ecological systems framework and a strengths perspective as contexts for the development of basic competencies.

Prerequisite: admission to the MSW program; FSW 621 and 622.
