Advanced Group Work

SSW CP 762

Graduate Prerequisites: (SSWCP755 & SSWCP756 & SSWCP757) For Traditional Track and HSE Students ; Graduate Corequisites: (SSWCP755 OR SSWCP756 OR SSWCP757)For Advanced Standing Students - This advanced group work course is designed for social work students who desire further learning in group practice, to deepen their understanding of the group work method in social work, and for students interested in leadership and supervision roles. Group Work as a method is far-reaching and is utilized across the spectrum of practice, from the micro and clinical interventions to the organizational and macro interventions. The aim of the course is to deepen students' understanding of group dynamics, theories, and method, with a special emphasis on the group-as-a-whole. The relationship between the group and its environment will be woven throughout the course, as will ethics and issues of diversity and difference--class, age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation, etc.. Organizationally, the course examines the worker's use of self, the group, program, research, and the environment (although in real life, these aspects of group life are used simultaneously).
