Adv Group Work W/ Vuln. Pops.
SW462: Advanced Group Work with Vulnerable Populations This course builds on theories and skills learned in SW577. Focusing on vulnerable client systems in an array of settings, students will further develop the capacity to promote mutual aid by responding to and catalyzing group dynamics and process. Additional attention will be paid to the impacts of difference amongst group members, and between the worker and the group members. Through action and reflection, participants will examine their own group work practice very closely through the use of experiential exercises, journaling, and critical incident analysis, and by hearing about their colleagues' work. Students must have an ongoing group to facilitate or observe in order to benefit from this class. Prerequisite is SW577. This course meets the requirement for a clinical practice elective.
