This course is designed for students in the post-graduate program leading to state endorsement/licensure for school social work (PEL: SSW). This field course is designed to integrate the prior professional experiences of students who have practiced social work outside of the public school setting with the unique knowledge and skills required by this setting. Students, in conjunction with the School of Social Work and their field instructors, design a unique learning experience that allows them to transfer skills developed in other settings to the public-school arena and to learn additional knowledge and skills necessary for providing school social work services.

This course is taken in the first of two consecutive semester of the MSW Generalist field placement. A field placement constitutes experiences in practice in a professional agency under the instruction of a qualified practitioner and a minimum of 450 hours in total over two semesters ( typically this looks like 225 during the first semester and 225 hours during the second semester) or 500 hours for students pursing the addictions concentration (i.e., 250 hours per semester). This foundation-level field experience is designed to build transferable skills in engagement, case management, counseling, group facilitation, documentation and referral. The 9 Core Competencies of Social Work Practice are measures at the middle and end of the field experience.
