Practice Related Home-Based Family Centered Services Course for Master of Social Work Curricula.
Virginia Commonwealth Univ., Richmond. Region III Child Welfare Training Center.
This course outline provides a framework for incorporating material about home-based family centered services (HBFCS) in existing masters-level family/child welfare curricula. The placement of the course in the curriculum is discussed, with suggestions for appropriate background knowledge/course work. Seven major topics are outlined: (1) Maintaining Families to Prevent Separation; (2) HBFCS to Prevent Separation; (3) Identification and Treatment of High Risk Families; (4) Traditional Social Work Services to High Risk Families; (5) Providing Home-Based Services to Minorities; (6) Review of Current Home-Based Programs; and (7) The Future of HBFCS. Major content areas covered in the seven sections include maintaining the family, serving families, historical review of HBFCS, services to minorities, HBFCS models, and skill development. The format for the course outline consists of student outline and readings, and instructor notes and additional readings, which run parallel and cover the same topical material. A section entitled "Selected Course Readings" provides annotations for the readings which are asterisked in the outline. An extensive appendix provides selected learning exercises, case examples, and the handouts which are referred to in the body of the outline. (BH)
