SWFI 630S: Integrative Field Seminar - Advanced Level

Credit Hours



This course is designed to enhance the integration of core components of social work knowledge (e.g., social-work informed developmental theory and practice theory) with students’ fieldwork.  In particular, the course provides students the opportunity to interact with peers and faculty around their work with client systems. The seminar format is designed to provide a collaborative professional consultation group experience among participants working with an array of different clients in diverse practice settings. Emphasis is placed on helping students develop direct practice skills and knowledge, self-awareness, and a professional identity. This in-person, discussion-based course will meet every two weeks during the semester, for a total of eight class sessions.
