SOW 3376 - Social Work Methods II

Credits: 3 hrs
This is the second practice course in the foundation curriculum. It is designed to provide students with an overview of the basic knowledge and skills in order to work with groups and community organizations. The use of generalist social work models as it relates to both group practice and community-based practice provide the primary focus. Key themes and concepts include introductory group practice knowledge for developing various types of groups, groups for populations at risk, general stages of group practice, and assessing group work.  Community-based practice themes and concepts include documenting a community, assessing and understanding community problems and concerns, generic community practice skills and the need for social planning and activism. This course focuses on introductory generalist practice models with diverse populations, with particular emphasis on interventions with rural populations and groups that experience social and economic injustices based on racial, ethic, sexuality, gender, religious, and other factors.
