Rural Social Work Practice

SWK 430
Description: Students apply the unique demographic, ethnic and cultural characteristics of US rural and small town environments to assessment and intervention strategies. Their focus is from a community-wide versus individual perspective. They learn to utilize informal and reciprocal helping networks, to recognize and maintain community assets and resources, and to work collaboratively with community leaders for the well being of all. They address relevant policy issues and the implications of an evolving rural landscape in this process.
