SOCW 860 - Personal and Professional Development Seminar

The use of one’s self is the foundational platform on which all other tools used in the therapeutic relationship depend. As such, it is essential that clinical social workers engage in personal development in preparation for and in conjunction with development as a professional.  Self-awareness, self-understanding and a commitment to self-improvement are an essential part of the development of a clinical social worker. This course is designed to assist students in understanding the theory of one’s individual self, identify areas for self-development, converge this development within a professional social work context, and develop strategies for personal and professional development across one’s career.
