This course is an advanced seminar, which provides theories compatible with the ecological systems perspective in relation to multi-level work with families at different levels of functioning and of diverse forms. RELATION TO OTHER COURSES When working with or researching families, social workers use many of the knowledge, skills, and values learned throughout the curriculum. Research about the family is supported by knowledge and skills gained in SOWK 6100 (Information Technology Lab), SOWK 6500 (Research and Evaluation Methods in Social Work), SOWK 7500 (Advanced Research and Program Evaluation) and SOWK 7860 (Grant Writing in Human Services).
