SW 632 DSW Capstone II: Designing Implementation Strategies

3 credits

The course builds on DSW Capstone I, and is the next step in students’ capstone projects. Students will design, adapt, and/or tailor intervention processes, and develop an implementation and evaluation plan that targets key behavioral and/or contextual determinants of uptake with an emphasis on integrating trauma-informed human rights (TIHR) and racial justice perspectives. We will also identify outcomes, metrics, and assessment tools that are aligned with intervention strategies, and propose study designs and relevant methods to evaluate implementation efforts while adhering to ethical guidelines. Students will continue to consult with professional collaboration networks (PCNs) and other key stakeholders in the development of evidence-based, TIHR interventions.
