SW-503: Human Sexuality and Social Work Practice

1-3 credit hours
This knowledge base course is designed to aid the learner in developing greater knowledge, skill, and sensitivity in working with sexuality issues presented by clients and their families, and communities or organizations that serve them. Special emphasis is placed on studying the converging influences of gender, sexual orientation and other factors (including multi-cultural), to better understand and respond to clients' needs, especially in micro and macro systems. Through course learning experiences, learners have opportunities to strengthen their grasp of the role sexuality plays in human social behavior, including communication, relationships, group functioning, work experiences, and other important life events.
