The UB School of Social Work is proud to announce the new Online Part-Time Doctor of Social Work (DSW) in Social Welfare Program!
We are hoping to enroll our inaugural DSW class to begin in fall of 2019.
Our online DSW program is grounded in a trauma-informed and human rights (TI-HR) perspective that emphasizes the use of best practice interventions within clinical practice. Using implementation science as a framework, students develop knowledge on strategies to integrate and apply research into practice, assess and execute clearly defined treatment goals that incorporate TI-HR concepts, and evaluate evidence-based treatments in direct practice settings.
The program is intended for experienced social work practitioners with access to a client population. Graduates are prepared to assume leadership in the dissemination of advanced social work practice knowledge and skills, and contribute to bringing a TI-HR perspective into practice.
