1 UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MAINE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK SWO 384 Empowerment Practice with Victims and Survivors of Violence SUMMER, June 29-July 2, 8:15-5:00 pm daily Instructor: Connie Ostis, PhD, LCSW COURSE DESCRIPTION Within the generalist social work practice paradigm, this course offers students the opportunity to understand empowerment practice as it is applied in victim advocacy work aimed at improving the condition of both individuals and society. The interdisciplinary work of victim advocates arises from the theory, methods, and ethics of a variety of fields including social work, criminal justice, public health, psychology, theology, women s studies, sociology, victims rights/victimology, the law, and others. Victim advocates provide a variety of job functions within a variety of organizations and agencies to support and empower individual victims and their families: advocacy; public education; training to other professionals; consultation; and, social change activism. While responding to crime victims mental, physical, financial, social, emotional, and spiritual needs, victim advocacy broadens individual knowledge of criminal victimization and thereby helps individuals and the public develop informed choices concerning victim-related issues, services and policies. Over five intense days, leaders and expert practitioners provide a rich educational foundation, grounded in the knowledge, skills and values that are needed for practical application of new learning. Additionally, the course offers a unique opportunity to work, study, and interact with people from a variety of programs and victim populations. COURSE RATIONALE & PURPOSE In keeping with the rationale and purpose of the Victim Assistance Academy upon which this course is based, and which in prior years has been offered under the auspices of DHHS and USM s Muskie School of Public Service, this course aims to promote a standard of skills and responsibilities common to the practice of victim assistance, and to bring consistency to the education and training of victim advocates, regardless of discipline or agency-base.

Class Attendance Policy

5 SWO 384 EMPOWERMENT PRACTICE Ostis June-July One of the goals of the social work program is to prepare students for accountable professional practice. Attendance in class enhances learning and provides students with rich opportunities to dialogue with and learn from peers. Therefore, students are expected to attend ALL class sessions. It is especially imperative that students come to class on time and remain for the entire class session. Leaving during the break period is considered an absence for that class session. Chronic tardiness or leaving early will result in a lower grade and may be counted as a class absence. Regardless of the nature of extenuating circumstances, a student will receive a failing grade, F, if he/she misses more than two of the class sessions. The attendance sheet will be passed around at the beginning of each class session. It is the student s responsibility to sign the attendance sheet that will serve as the official attendance record. For any unexpected absences, please contact the professor prior to the absence if possible. Policy on Written Work Professional social workers rely on effective written communication as well as effective verbal communication skills. Written communication (e.g. court reports, letters written regarding clients, case assessment, etc.) is often the vehicle through which social workers professionally represent clients. Therefore, it is imperative that students write clearly using proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling on all written assignments. A portion of the grade for each written assignment will be based on the quality of writing that follows the APA style. If needed, student may seek assistance at the Academic Support Center. Late Assignments Through learning assignments, students are prepared for professional practice that includes efficient time and task management skills. Therefore, each student is expected to turn in all papers on their due dates. All late papers will be penalized 10% of earned points regardless of extenuating circumstances that led to a late submission. Missed Exam: Students must take the exam on the scheduled date. No rescheduling. Policy on Incomplete Grades According to the USM policy, an incomplete grade can only be considered when the student has completed 75% of class requirements. Faculty are not to give an incomplete grade as a remedy for overload, failure in examination(s), absence from final examination (for other than an emergency situation), or a low grade to be raised with extra work. It is the student s responsibility to request an incomplete grade from the instructor by completing the Petition to Receive Incomplete Grade form and following the procedure outlined on this form. To request an incomplete grade does not automatically assure that the instructor will approve the request.
