Course Detail for SW-621-03
|SW-621-03||Social Work Perspectives on Ps (3 )||
Instruction Type: Lecture/Discussion
This course allows students to identify and develop an understanding of the issues inherent in the study and assessment of individual behavior. As the primary providers of mental health services in the United States, it is imperative that social workers develop knowledge of and skill in using the primary model for assessing and diagnosing mental health disorders, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5. The individual diagnostic groupings are addressed within the framework of the DSM 5 classification system. The inclusion of the strengths perspective counters an obvious shortcoming, from the social work perspective, of DSM 5.
