SW-611: Social Work Practice III

2 credit hours
Social Work Practice III exposes learners to a generalist practice perspective for social work practice with macro systems, including neighborhoods, communities, and legislative arenas, with emphasis on economic and social justice. Learners learn and practice skills in engagement, assessment, intervention, and endings and transitions within a macro context. Learners develop an understanding of how social systems can impact human functioning. Emphasis is placed on ways in which social and organizational change informs practice, with special attention to building learners' skills in community organizing, leadership development, networking, mobilization, and advocacy, and other strategies and techniques used to build power and eradicate oppressive systems.
