SWK 5600. Advanced Clinical Assessment and Intervention Methods (3 credits)


An advanced course in the assessment skills required for professional social work practice in mental health and other clinical settings. The course will focus on clinical assessment as described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM IV-TR. Students will be expected to become conversant with the clinical descriptions used in mental health diagnosis and to master the basic assessment skills required of social workers in clinical settings. Students will apply assessment knowledge and skills in planning practical and effective treatment strategies. Clinical assessment skills are not only necessary for the social worker in many areas of direct practice but are of use to all social workers as they deal with other helping professionals (i.e., psychiatrists, psychologists, school counselors, etc.). This may be particularly true in rural settings where the social work generalist may be called upon to function in multiple roles and fields of practice. PREREQ: SWK 5060  or Advanced Standing.
