This course provides an overview of theory and models of social work intervention with couples and families. Students learn the philosophy and theoretical constructs of a variety of methods, as well as how to apply those methods to clients. In addition, the course focuses on a few common clinical issues that families face, allowing students the opportunity to apply the methods to particular problem areas. Emphasis is placed on both cultural and gender issues, as well as on working with families with both traditional and non-traditional structures.
