SW 496 - Field Experience II (4)

This is the second of two senior practicum courses in the social work major that provides an opportunity for students to serve clients in  Kansas City regional social service organizations.  Students have previously served 250 hours in a social work setting and complete an additional 250 hours in SW 496. Field Experience II picks up on previous Field learning stages of Anticipation; Disillusionment/Empowerment; with the third stage of growth in experiential learning - Competence, followed by Culmination. (Sweitzer & King, 2014)  Students increase their independence and sense of identity as an emerging social work professional by implementing a new set of Learning Activities for this second practicum, involving generalist social work practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities, while supervised by an approved Field Instructor who is an MSW or BSW social worker.  This course also serves as the setting for independent research on the effectiveness of the student’s own practice with a client at the micro, mezzo, or macro level. Prerequisites: SW 495 . Corequisite: SW 498 . 2015 CORE: Social Justice & Civic Life, Contribute, Community Engagement. SP.
