|Description:||In this program, you’ll learn from professors and guest speakers who have considerable experience in family therapy, policy development, social work, social justice and other social service fields. You’ll gain a solid skills foundation through a laboratory practicum, and you’ll develop plans for starting and running a service organization.
Some of the tasks students will learn to do are: conduct effective assessments, manage interventions, develop advocacy strategies relevant to a client’s needs, work with government agencies to navigate regulations, become fully aware of the services available and how to deliver them, and understand the scope of your practice and when (and where) to refer clients.
