SWK 306 Assessment and Intervention Strategies with Diverse Populations

The goal of this course is for social work students to enhance their assessment and intervention knowledge, value base, and skills in order to more effectively work with a variety of client groups. The course is designed to focus on different populations each week. Students are taught knowledge, values, and skills related to specific assessment and intervention techniques that have been found to be most effective with each client group. Some examples of the wide range of diverse populations covered are working with: children with cancer, adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder, working with gangaffiliated youth, victims of bullying, suicide and military personnel, adolescents in juvenile detention, adolescent victims of sexual assault, and adults with gambling disorders.
