BSW Field Education

BSW Field Education prepares BSW students with generalist practice skills. Barry University School of Social Work Field Education curriculum is designed to ensure the integration between the classroom learning experience and direct social work practice. Field Education courses are a vital part of the BSW curriculum, providing BSW students the opportunity to develop generalist practice skills in a supervised setting. These generalist practice skills should include but not be limited to orientation to social service agencies; familiarity and engagements with various client populations, enhanced knowledge of community resources, development of case management, intake and assessment, discharge skills, and consistent exposure to agency client population that provides increasing opportunities to engage in direct and indirect client contact (i.e. counseling and therapeutic work) and participation in community events (i.e. workshops and trainings).
