|(3 cr.) This advanced clinical practice course builds upon
the knowledge, attitude and skills components of
the foundation curriculum, with a focus on
assessment and intervention in intimate
relationships within clinical social work
practice. The process and outcomes of working
with intimate dyadic adult relationships will be
viewed from psychosocial, communication,
cognitive, systems, object relations and
attachment frameworks. There will be an emphasis
on working with couples with a history of trauma.
Exercises, discussion and presentations will
encourage student awareness of their own values
base and the need to provide ethical professional
service free of personal bias.
