Prerequisites: SOWK 4332. The third in the three-course sequence, this course builds on the foundation interviewing and client-system assessment skills presented in Practice I and the various intervention skills to be used with individuals, groups, communities, and in family-centered practice, which were the focus of Practice II. Practice III introduces methods for terminating a client from service by focusing on final empowerment strategies and strategies for program and practice evaluation. The focus on program and practice evaluation, in correlation with social work values, will integrate research methods into the professional world of practice. Skills learned in this course will also help to prepare the student for supervisory and managerial positions within the agency arena and are integrated with actual practice experience through the SOWK 4542 Field Experience I and SOWK 4213 Field Seminar I.
