Description
This course is designed to provide students with an overview of work with families. Social workers engage families in various settings, such as in social service agencies, the home, school, mental health and medical facilities, and in direct service agencies such as shelters and clinics. They also meet families in connection with social justice work such as work with immigrants. This course will provide students with the basic knowledge and skills to make initial assessments of family functioning in the context of the social environment and an understanding of the variety of challenges families' experience. Students will be presented with developmental theories, as well as traditional theoretical frameworks used in family assessments. The concept of family in its more varied and inclusive forms, including same-sex marriage and non-traditional definitions of family will be explored.
Enrollment Requirements
You must have completed 6 credits in Social Science courses with a grade of 'C' or better.
