SOCIAL WORK 315

SCWK 490 & 491: Social Work Field Placement I and II In field placement, students are expected to demonstrate in specific and concrete ways that they are prepared as beginning professional generalist practitioners to work with all size systems from individual, family, group, organization and community. It is the program’s expectation that students will not only use the values and ethics that they have acquired through their liberal arts foundation and the social work curriculum but that they will actively promote these values and ethics in agency settings. The field component by its very nature of exposing students to real and complex life situations demonstrates and requires students and field instructors to seek new social work knowledge in order to find the best solutions to meet the client systems needs. Corequisite: SCWK 363, 400 6 credits SCWK 495: Advanced Interviewing Skills This course will focus on two very similar approaches to interviewing: solution focused and motivational interviewing. Both approaches are similar and reinforce each other and both approaches are aimed at what professionals label difficult clients. The course requires a basic understanding and skill in using basic interviewing skills. These skills will be quickly reviewed and then students will learn both solution focused and motivational interviewing. Prerequisite: SCWK 360 3 credits Social Work Curriculum (Numerals in front of courses indicate credits)
