Course Description for Field Education III with Integrated Seminar
Field Education III with Integrated Seminar
Description: Field education, the signature pedagogy of the social work profession, is integral to the education and professional socialization of social work students, providing a structured and supervised environment in which students will apply and begin to demonstrate mastery of theoretical knowledge, test and refine practice skills, and adopt professional behaviors. This course provides students with an opportunity to expand social work practice to include advanced generalist interventions with clients in a human service organization. Advanced generalist practice emphasizes both clinical and administrative elements of social work practice, preparing students to assume a variety of roles. Students will utilize the seminar component of this course to address appropriate boundary setting and self-care associated with sound practice skills in clinical and administrative contexts.
