This course is a continuation of GRSW 501 and is also taken concurrently with a field placement which serves as a practice lab for theory and skills learned in the classroom. This course focuses on several practice applications: group theory and process (both task and treatment groups), agency change, and understanding the dynamics of unintended discrimination and oppression. As with the first course, student self-awareness and self-assessment are critical to developing a solid foundation for authentic practice.

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.

This course will examine the history of social work and social work education. By reading and discussing influential historic social work texts, students will understand and consider the enduring tensions, achievements, and possibilities of the social work profession. The influences of socioeconomic class, race, and gender on the development of social work and social work education are considered. The longstanding tensions between theory and practice and between micro and macro practice are also addressed. The historical legacy of leadership provided by educators and other influential persons in the social work profession are examined. Students will take on the role of professor by presenting historic texts and leading thought-provoking and engaging discussions. Students will conduct a scholarly historic analysis of archival materials on a topic related to social work education that culminates in a research paper and review a peer’s final paper, as well. Students will develop a consciousness of their identity as a social work instructor and scholar and be able to identify and articulate the historic antecedents that have influenced this development
