Fall 2023 SOWK 486w Week 02 - Practice Related to Perspectives, Frameworks, & Theories

A presentation at Heritage University at CBC Week 02 in in Pasco, WA 99301, USA by Jacob Campbell

Week two is a cross-sectional look at some perspectives, frameworks, and theories commonly used in social work. It should assist in gaining awareness about the difference between these ways of thinking discussed in social work literature. We will look into the following:

  • Perspectives, theories, and frameworks
  • Systems theory
  • Ecological perspective
  • Strengths perspective
  • Solution-focused brief therapy

After this session, students will be able to articulate the difference between perspectives, theories, and frameworks. Students will also have knowledge about a couple of theoretical options for their integrative paper due later in the semester.
