Spring 2024 SOWK 487w Week 14 - Social Skill Instruction Group with with Youth in Schools

A presentation at Heritage at CBC Week 14 in in Pasco, WA 99301, USA by Jacob Campbell

Week 14 is focused on group work with youth in a school-based setting. One significant function social workers can have in school is assisting with instruction and acquiring social and emotional learning (SEL) skills. Jones et al. (2021) is an in-depth report on SEL in school and can provide insight into what it is. In addition, social workers often lead groups to work on social skills with youth, and Kumm et al. (2021) give a few examples of how we can implement social skill instruction. During class, we will be looking at several ideas. These include the following.

  • Overview of Working in Bridges Program
  • Overview of SEL
  • Implementation of ART Moral Reasoning
  • Ideas for Working with Adolescents and Social Skills
