Progressive Social Work Practice
Credits: 3 cr.
This course examines the long progressive tradition in social work practice. You critically assess the radical literature and apply its principles to clinical social work practice. Major practice principles of progressive social work include forming democratic relationships with clients and coworkers, posing questions and raising consciousness, understanding the "person is political," and favoring primary prevention and education to address root causes of social problems.
