Teaching Note--Lessons Learned from Developing and Implementing a Dementia Caregiving Graduate-Level Service-Learning Course
Washington, Tiffany R.
Journal of Social Work Education, v54 n3 p576-584 2018
This teaching note delineates seven lessons learned when designing and implementing a graduate-level dementia caregiving service-learning course. The course was designed during a 1-year faculty service-learning fellowship and implemented during the summer of 2015. The course used a person-in-environment framework to explain social work practice with family systems affected by dementia. It aimed to increase students' knowledge about dementia and improve students' attitudes toward working with people with dementia through respite visits with families affected by dementia. Three recommendations for future course offerings are described.
