Clark, Elizabeth J., Ed.; Fritz, Jan M., Ed.
One of a series of resources for teaching sociology at the postsecondary level, this volume includes outlines of survey, internship, and specialized courses in the field of clinical sociology as well as a selection of classroom exercises developed by clinical sociologists. Material is divided into nine sections. Section I, an introduction, provides a definition of clinical sociology, a brief history of the field, and an overview of the Clinical Sociology Association Curriculum File Project. Section II contains outlines of nine undergraduate courses in clinical sociology. Section III contains syllabi for four graduate courses in clinical sociology offered at universities around the nation. Outlines for three practicum courses are contained in section IV. Thirteen specialized courses taught from a clinical sociology perspective are provided in section V. Examples of courses described are community conflict intervention, social network therapy, and small group dynamics. Outlines generally identify professor and university and include a course description, course objectives, required texts or assignments, and units of study. Section VI contains over 20 classroom exercises, ideas, and sample lesson plans. The remaining three sections consist of a 6-page annotated bibliography, a list of contributors, and an author index.
