CRN: 20496 Instructor: Mari A. Graham This course conceptualizes social work practice as consisting of seven interrelated elements: use of theory, goals of practice, context for practice, nature of helping relationship, assessment, intervention and ethical guidelines. These interrelated elements will be explored in the context of religion, spirituality, and various practice settings. Social work assists people in achieving their full potential within their environmental contexts by adopting a holistic, person-in-environment perspective. Since its inception, the profession has recognized that a holistic perspective requires attending to biological, psychological, sociological, and spiritual human needs. Current trends in social work education support the inclusion of content on religion and spiritual diversity. In accordance with professional policy, this course is an elective that provides an introduction to the spiritual dimension of social work practice.

CRN: 20161 Instructor: Kathleen M. Fargione This class will be focused on the normal development trajectory from birth through adolescence, with an emphasis on the early formative years.

The second half of the semester will look at various pathologies found in children with a goal of discovering the causes of these patholgies and the most useful interventions to help development get back on track. During all of the semester we will also be reading clinical stories, including effective interventions when development goes awry.

GRSW 682 - 22 Applied Research Seminar See Details * *
CRN: 20953 0 Credit Hours Instructor: Kari L. Fletcher Candidates for the MSW degree must satisfactorily conduct a clinical research project, present the findings, and complete a final written and bound report. The purpose of the clinical research project is to provide the student with an opportunity to independently conceptualize a research problem, formulate a research design, implement the research, analyze the data, address ethical and cultural considerations, and disseminate the findings. The project is a logical extension of required research courses (GRSW 580 and GRSW 681) and requires application, integration, and further development of previously acquired skills and knowledge. The research must be relevant to clinical social work practice. The project must demonstrate an original and clear contribution to the body of social work knowledge in the student's selected area of focus. It should demonstrate the student's ability to integrate social work theory with research findings.

GRSW 690 - 20 Topics: DBT Therapy See Details * *
CRN: 22634 Instructor: Jane F. Hurley-Johncox This course provides a detailed understanding of the theoretical perspectives, empirical foundations, and treatment strategies of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT is an empirically supported treatment (EST) approach for working with clients that have difficulty managing symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, personality disorders and personality disorder – trait specified (PD-TS), addictions, and dual diagnosis. DBT assists clinicians in expanding their expertise and effectiveness working with and supporting clients with dramatic interpersonal styles, difficulty regulating their reactions to external triggers, suicidal issues, and self harm potential. It is a therapeutic approach that originated from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This course will explore the theoretical basis for this approach, practice of specific DBT interventions, and how to work with high-risk, complex, multi-need clients using an experiential component that will directly apply to clinical social work.
