Subject outline

In this subject students build on knowledge and skills developed in SWP4APA, SWP4APB, SWP5PPA or SWP5PPB. Using beginning competency in direct practice, students will focus on extending understanding of key theoretical frameworks and integrating these with practice at a deeper level. On completion, students will have the capacity to work more extensively and confidently with individuals, families and groups at a graduate social worker level. Students will further develop reflective capacity, engage in seminar groups for experiential learning, including role plays, and will be expected to play an active part in group development and maintenance, including reflecting on the group experience.
