This seminar provides a foundation and overview for students interested in understanding the intersection between social work and psychology. The readings bring together psychological theory and scholarship as they relate to contemporary social work and social welfare issues. Topics, chosen to illustrate the intersection of the two fields and to bring together faculty from both schools, may include gerontology, life span development, stereotyping and stigma, and social identity. Beyond the joint Psychology/Social Work students, the course is expected to attract joint Social Work/social science students from other disciplines, as well a graduate students in economics, public policy, sociology, anthropology, and other fields. The course will include activities such as guest speakers, works in-progress discussion, readings, and presentations.
