Special Seminars in Practice, Intervention, and Policy

SW818, Section 001

Content varies, in keeping with faculty and student interests in emerging issues relating to practice, intervention or policy, and covers theoretical and empirical underpinnings, key research questions and gaps in knowledge, ethical and value issues, and ethnic, gender, minority, and social‐class factors. For example, the seminar may focus on a critical analysis of a developing intervention or of a new social welfare policy initiative.

Topic Description / Additional Information

Group work is a social work intervention method with roots in the earliest history of the social work profession. Group work spans multiple levels and domains of social work practice, including interpersonal practice, community organization, and management of human services. Although there are distinct elements in each of these domains, there are also common elements shared. Social work with groups is still practiced in all fields of service and is particularly strong internationally. A knowledge of group theory, research, and practice methods is an important aspect of our field. In this seminar, we will explore the historical roots development, and practice of group work within the social work profession. We will examine the evidence base of its effective use across different practice levels.
