II.Catalogue Description


The course of human life, including the factors which impinge on the developmental continuum between normal and pathological conditions.

III. Course Description


Content includes empirically-based theories and knowledge that focuses on individual development and behavior as well as the interactions between and among individuals, groups, organizations, communities, institutions and larger systems. Students will also learn about human development over the life span including knowledge of biophysiological maturation, cognitive development, social relationships, and the psychosocial developmental tasks for the individual and family from adolescence through late adulthood. At each phase of the life course, the reciprocal interplay between individual development and familial, small group, community and societal contexts are emphasized. The course is organized according to the case study method to help students critically analyze how people develop within a range of social systems (individual, family, group, organizational, and community) and how these systems promote or impede health, well being, and resiliency. Thus, students will critically apply these different theories and perspectives to case studies or scenarios of contemporary situations in complex, urban, multicultural environments as embodied in the Southern California region.

Given the mission and purpose of social work, the course integrates content on the values and ethics of the profession as they pertain to human behavior and development across multiple systems. Special attention is given to the influence of diversity as characterized by (but not limited to) age, gender, class, race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, disability and religion. The course makes important linkages between course content and social work practice, policy, research, and field instruction, specifically in evaluating multiple factors that impinge on functioning and converge in differential assessment and intervention.

Objective #

Objectives

1

Teach the ethical standards and practices of professional social work. Provide an environment that encourages students to explore how their particular gender, age, religion, ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation influence their ethics and how these variables may affect their ethical decision making in practice.

2

Provide opportunities for students to increase awareness of individual needs that diverse populations (gender, race, sexual orientation, social class, religion, and vulnerable and oppressed groups) present, identify the special influence of diversity on human behavior and the social environment, and how theories and perspectives address these populations.

3

Demonstrate critical analysis of socio-historical-political contexts from which theories and perspectives emanated and their relation to the social work profession in order to provide students with skills necessary to integrate and apply multiple (sometimes competing perspectives) using varying learning formats through both oral and written assignments.

4

Present foundation materials on the complex nature and scope of human behavior and the social environment, and how understanding of these theories address factors assist social workers in becoming effective change agents. Emphasis will also be placed on the role of research in generating, supporting, and revising the knowledge base and relative gap of evidence across theories and populations.

5

Provide the theoretical foundation needed for students to develop core knowledge of human behavior and the social environment. Demonstrate major concepts (person in environment, lifespan development, biopsychosocial assessment, social construction, and knowledge building). Provide students with commonly applied theories utilized in the field of social work.
