Social work educators often teach students clinical knowledge within a university classroom, whereas students tend to learn clinical practice through their practicum experiences. This article describes data from a cross-sectional, mixed-method study on one way to effectively bridge the gap between teaching clinical knowledge and practice to graduate students. In this study, students participated in a newly developed and delivered 3-hour weekly course, over 12 weeks, based around students' observation of ongoing live family therapy sessions at a children's mental health organization. Findings suggest that this course design can fill a gap between the classroom and practicum experiences for students.
