SOCW 2090 Social Work Practicum II
Pre-requisite(s): SOCW 2060, SOCW 2070, SOCW 2080
Field Practicum II is an advanced educationally focused, guided, field experience in which students engage in community-based practice with individuals, families, and/or communities. Students gain experience with various social work roles, such as advocate, broker, and counselor. Students learn to function as professional generalist social workers in an organization setting, to demonstrate an understanding of and behavior consistent with NASW Code of Ethics, and to increasingly assume professional responsibility. Special emphasis is placed on the identification of special needs, the empowerment of diverse populations at the micro and mezzo levels, and a keen awareness of social justice issues. Students will be under the supervision of the Social Work program, faculty and/or persons designated to coordinate work experience arrangements.
