Course Overview

This foundation course affirms the central focus of social work practice as the person or human group in interaction with the social environment. Its purpose — to understand the problematic transactions between people and their environments; its goal — to use this understanding to restore and enhance mutually beneficial transactions between people and society through reciprocal tasks and adaptations. Concepts of biopsychosocial development across the life span will be presented. The family will be considered as an open system with functions that shift at stages of transitions.
