CSWRK 5015 Field Seminar I

This required Field seminar is taken concurrently with Fieldwork I.  The purpose of this course is to provide students the opportunity to integrate their professional development and direct practice skills within the context of their fieldwork experiences. Students will engage in extensive self-reflection and assessment in relation to their professional skills, values, knowledge, self-care, and identity. They will also explore the changing role of the socio-political climate and its impact on the provision of social services, policy development, and consumer/agency resources and practice. Constructs central to the field such as ethical decision-making, evidence-based practice, social justice, and self-care will also be explored. The integration and application of classroom and field will build on the social work framework across the Social Work curriculum and provide a springboard for entrance into the profession.
