Human Behavior in the SocialEnvironment II


As a second course in the Human Behavior and Social Environment curriculum, SWK308 focuses on deepening the student’s knowledge of the theoretical frameworks that attempt to explain behavior and enlighten effective work with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities as a generalist social worker. Maladaptive patterns of adult psychological functioning are examined with a bio-psycho-social perspective in order that students may contextualize the information. Although students concentrate upon problematic human functioning, the course is presented in a manner that encourages them to view the strengths of clients along with their difficulties.
