This exploration will be set upon the foundation of contemporary social work values as well as the historic mission of social work as a profession. Particular attention will be given to the Strengths Perspective, populations at risk, and social justice. Students will gain a beginning level of knowledge and skills from the generalist perspective that they will be able to apply at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Students will critically examine current theoretical foundations in both group and family intervention in an effort to gain understanding of the field of practice from an eclectic viewpoint. Relevance to Educational Program: This course utilizes content from SOW 3232- Social Welfare Policy and Provision to deepen awareness of how social policy affects practice reality with groups, couples, and families. Content from the HBSE sequence is used to ground the GIM in the biopsychosocial perspective. This course compliments SOW 4403- Research Methods in Social Work by underscoring the need for accountability in practice and critically examining theory and research. This course builds on the knowledge and skills gained in SOW 4302- Social Work Practice 1: Generalist Practice with Individuals. This course prepares the student for the even broader perspective of SOW 4343- Social Work Practice 3: Generalist Practice with Organizations and Communities. The practice sequence courses prepare the student for the rigorous and growth-enhancing experience of the Field Placement Seminar that is the culminating experience of the BSW education. The BSW degree prepares a student to pursue a graduate degree or to enter employment as a beginning-level generalist practitioner. Educational Objectives:
