Direct Practice with Children and Families

This second year required course for family and children focuses on direct social work practice with children and their families. The rationale for the course is that in many settings, social workers often are the first, and sometimes the only, helping professionals available to provide services to troubled and troubling children. Social workers, therefore, need a core base of assessment and intervention skills to work effectively with a variety of problems that children, parent(s) and family members commonly encounter.
