Advancing Social Work Curriculum in Psychopharmacology and Medication Management
Farmer, Rosemary L.; Bentley, Kia J.; Walsh, Joseph
Journal of Social Work Education, v42 n2 p211-229 Spr-Sum 2006
The authors reviewed current literature and curriculum resources on psychopharmacology and social work. They argue that baccalaureate and master of social work courses need to routinely include more in-depth knowledge on psychopharmacology and provide a more critical social work-focused approach to this content due to the increasing complexity of social work practice, including a knowledge explosion in the neurosciences. Toward this end, 7 curriculum modules are proposed, including suggestions for class activities and assignments and application of module content to field courses.
