SOWK 2120 Social Work Interventions with Children & Youth

This course is designed to provide students with an overview of social work intervention services from historical, theoretical, and practice perspectives. Services to children and their families are divided into support services which enhance family life, supplemental services that help struggling families to maintain or regain their functioning, and substitute services that provide for the child on a temporary or permanent basis when the family cannot do so. Each service is considered in terms of need, rationale, provision of service, diverse populations, consumer views of service, and social trends that may affect future provision of the service.
