0.5 credit (repeated for 1 credit total)

This course is designed to allow students a professional forum where they will have opportunities to share the integration of their coursework and fieldwork using reflection tools and case-based scenarios.   A combination of structured activities and open-ended discussions focusing on field placements will be held, utilizing the required social work competencies and component behaviors as themes. Seminar discussions require all participants to review and share examples from their field placement experiences and participate in providing and receiving constructive feedback, with the goal of developing knowledge, skills, and professional identity. This course will also introduce and make connections between field-work themes and principles of trauma-informed care and the promotion of human rights.
