SWK 713 Advanced Social Work Practice in the Urban Environment I

This is the first course in the two-semester advanced integrated practice sequence. The course highlights an advanced generalist approach with individuals across practice settings with an emphasis on the application of practice skills, values, and knowledge in urban environments. This course also serves to deepen students’ understanding of social work in agency-based practice settings and in the larger community context. In this course, students will also be taught SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral Treatment for substance using clients) according to the U.S. government SAMHSA grant received by the Lehman College Department of Social Work.
