Practice Related Family and Child Welfare Course for Bachelor of Social Work Curricula.
Virginia Commonwealth Univ., Richmond. Region III Child Welfare Training Center.
This course outline is intended as a starting point for developing or improving and expanding an existing family and child welfare course in a baccalaureate social work program. The placement of the child welfare course in the curriculum is discussed, with suggestions for appropriate background knowledge/course work, time allotments for the proposed modules, and alignment with a field placement. The course outline content is grouped into four modules: (1) Home-Based Services for Children and Families/Prevention of Out of Home Placement; (2) Protective Services for Children; (3) Permanency Planning; and (4) Residential Child Care. Each module covers from four to seven topic areas. The format for the outline consists of two parts: Student Outline and Readings, and Instructor Notes and Additional Readings. These run parallel, dealing with the same topical material. A section entitled "Selected Course Readings," at the end of the outline, provides annotations for the readings asterisked in the outline. The appendix includes selected learning exercises, case examples, and the handouts which are referred to in the body of the course outline. (BH)
