This course is a continuation of SOWK 401/4010 and the final of four courses in the practice sequence of the social work curriculum. The focus is on prevention/intervention methods based on generalist social work knowledge that can be applied to client systems of all sizes. A special emphasis is placed on effecting planned change in groups, organizations, communities, and national and global society toward the pursuit of social justice. A combination of lecture, discussion, experiential learning, and small group activities provides students with knowledge and skills for client advocacy and social change. SOWK 402/4020 is taken with 406/4060 in the spring semester. Prerequisites: SOWK 401/4010. SOWK 402/4020 is the same course as SOWK 4020/402 at St. Catherine University/University of St. Thomas.
