SW 4802 - Social Work Practice II


This is the second and final course in the undergraduate social work practice sequence. Develops the generalist intervention model and applies the model to working with families, groups, and communities, illustrating social work practitioners’ roles of counselor, educator, broker, case manager, advocate, and introduces roles of mobilizer and evaluator. Content related to the promotion of social and economic justice with oppressed and disadvantaged populations is introduced,with special attention to social injustice among racial and ethnic minorities, the economically disenfranchised, Appalachians and GLBT people. Focuses on the analytical and interactional skills associated with the problem solving model, by continuing the research project begun in SW 4960, now consisting of data collection, data analysis, and reporting writing assignments. Attention is also given to selected skills associated with the roles of broker, teacher, and advocate in effecting macro-level change. Builds on the community analysis experience from the first semester by writing an individual grant proposal that addresses specific identified community problems. Grant proposals, as an aspect of advocacy and brokerage, are identified as a means of partially rectifying economic and social injustice. Ethical dilemmas in practice and issues of diversity will be highlighted.
