SW 610 - Advanced Practice I


In SW610, students learn a wide range of therapeutic interventions designed to promote goal attainment and the well-being of individuals, families, groups, and communities. Students learn that effective advanced social work practice is guided & informed by theoretical frameworks, treatment models, practice behaviors, agency mission, policies, and requirements of funding sources. Although the course sequence begins with theories, frameworks, and models that can be used on a personal or family level of social work practice, as the course progresses, approaches will be applied to all three levels, personal (micro), agency (mezzo), and community (macro). This course equips students with a wide range of knowledge and skills related to engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation, to expand on practice skills learned at the generalist level. Students are expected to develop autonomous practice, to utilize critical thinking & reflection, and to function as an effective team member, as they expand awareness of conscious use of self in the social work helping partnerships. This course will include active discussions of values, ethics & practice behaviors, and students are expected to move beyond identifying ethical dilemmas, to planning and implementing strategies which effectively resolve these dilemmas. This course assesses Social Work EPAS competencies 1-9.
