SWK 324 - Social Work Practice and Cultural Diversity


This course prepares students to engage in sensitive, culturally-competent, cross-cultural and cross- ethnic social work practice and to develop cultural humility. Focuses on the processes of oppression in society and the experiences, needs, and responses of people subjected to institutionalized and personally mediated forms of oppression because of their particular collective characteristics. Social work theory, knowledge, and practice skills are emphasized to guide culturally competent interventions to address the needs of diverse groups. Cognitive and affective processes are stressed to help students assess personal feelings and attitudes about oppressed populations-at-risk for enhanced awareness, understanding, growth, and humility as advanced generalist practitioners.
