Social Service Work Seminar
The fieldwork seminar has a two-fold purpose. First it gives students an opportunity to discuss their field placement learning with each other and with the faculty. The field placement seminar provides students with the opportunity to integrate field experiences with the academic components of the curriculum.
The second purpose is to develop professional attitudes, examine feelings about specific learning experiences, develop self-awareness, and relate to others with insight, empathy and understanding. Students will develop their knowledge of the field of social services in general in order to understand the implications of the worker?s role in service delivery.
In addition, this subject builds on field experience and related theory to provide students with skills and strategies for finding employment. This will include portfolio development.
