2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will build on knowledge and skills developed in SWP4APA, SWP4APB, SWP5PPA or SWP5PPB. Using beginning competency in direct practice, you will focus on extending understanding of key theoretical frameworks and integrating these with practice at a deeper level. On completion, you will have the capacity to work more extensively and confidently with individuals, families and groups at a graduate social worker level. You will further explore 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. Professional accreditation requires a minimum level of field work practice. Your attendance at workshops in this subject will contribute to meeting this requirement for professional recognition as a social worker.
