This practice course introduces students to the basic processes of social work and the roles and skills needed for generalist social work practice. Through the lens of social justice and human rights, relevant theories of social work practice with individuals and families are explored in relation to interviewing skills and assessment strategies. The course integrates ethical/value standards, multicultural and diverse contexts, and populations at risk. Effective practice methods, ethical issues, and the problem-solving process are incorporated. Students must earn a "C" or better in this class or it will have to be repeated and this may delay a student's ability to move forward in the program.
