Intervension with Large Systems
Students will learn to effect and improve the lives of individuals, families and groups by working for social justice and social change at the organization and community level. Students will learn how to analyze and engage with communities. We will apply knowledge and skills in organizing, advocacy, collaboration, influencing policy, social and community development, and planning, to address issues facing diverse populations in living communities and connected to organizations across the life span. To be an effective human service worker, it is important to be able to differentially apply knowledge and skills, and to be able to select from a range of strategies and interventions that will best suit particular situations and issues. As part of this course, students will be expected to participate in a practicum in which they can learn for the community, work on community identified issues, and apply theory to practice.
