SWK 738 MSW Social Work Practice with Elderly with Disabilities
3 credits; 3 hours
Fourth of four courses in the Social Work Practice with People with Disabilities concentration. This is an advanced practice course on social work practice with elders with disabilities. It addresses types of human variances referred to as "disabilities" from a social constructionist framework. The social construction framework utilized in this course asserts that disability is not inherent in the individual as a deficit, but rather, is often a set of physical and social barriers that can constrain people. This course is designed to promote inclusive policies and practices for elders with disabilities. The intersectionality of disability and other diversity factors will be explored critically. A grade of B or better is required in this course.
Prerequisite: Completion of the foundation year of the MSW program or Advanced Standing Status
