Subject Area: Social Work

This course introduces students to social work multi-dimensional assessment, case management and interventions from contemporary, counselling frameworks. It develops skills in engaging and interviewing clients while introducing contemporary models of practice: task-centred, solution-focused, narrative, cognitive-behaviour therapy, psychodynamic and family therapy. The course examines how knowledge and skills from different approaches are used in selective and integrative ways in different social work contexts. Practice knowledge and skills develop through observing counselling DVDs, participating in role plays and being given constructive feedback.
