CSWRK 2101 Introduction to Social Work

Social workers demonstrate several core competencies, including the use of critical thinking to understand the role of diversity in the human experience, the role of the environment in shaping human behavior, and the dimensions of ethical practice. This course will explore the knowledge, values and skills that provide the basis for understanding and/or working in the field of social work. Through course readings, case studies, experiential activities, and guest speakers, we will examine the roles that social workers play in providing a range of services to a variety of populations. We will also examine the systemic issues that social workers address as well as a variety of modes of intervention.
