2 Frequently Asked Questions What do they mean work as it means related to social services? The Profession of social work has emerged in the twentieth century as one of the major human services professions. The great complexity of life in our time has made it increasingly difficult for many individuals, families and population groupings to achieve a self-realization without professional help; it has also created the need for a service which helps social institutions to be attuned to human need. Thus the focus of social work responsibility is on the well being of people and the forces and conditions which undermine human dignity. In its practice, social work is involved in social treatment and social change. The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree enables the graduate to practice as a professional social worker. Graduates may work in a number of areas: child welfare community development private practice gerontology public assistance family services school social work health care cross-cultural social work social policy employee assistance corrections mental health rehabilitation Social workers carry out a wide range of responsibilities within these areas. A sampling of these would include the following types of duties: Promoting community awareness in areas such as the criminal justice system, human rights, violence and abuse issues, etc.; Providing recreational, educational and counseling services to inmates in penitentiaries (and their families); Working with senior citizens in areas such as health care, community resources, elder abuse, legal aid, home care, housing, etc.; Program planning in personal care homes and school systems; Working with people with physical or mental disabilities in areas such as independent living, community resources, and legal aid; Working with the terminally ill and their families; Working with people/families coping with life stresses such as divorce, unemployment, death etc.; Child protection and abuse prevention, and; Providing individual, group and family counseling services to abused women and their children; Working together with minority, cultural and ethnic groups to develop programs which meet their needs; Working with employees in industrial settings; Planning and developing necessary community services, research social policies and issues and making recommendations for change; Working with and advocating for people requiring social assistance; and, Working with and advocating for people with AIDS/HIV and their support networks. Individuals who are considering a career in social work should be strongly committed to social justice and social change, and to a professional helping role. A mature outlook and personality, the ability to relate well to people and good verbal and written communication skills are also important. Social workers need to be able to think critically and to have a strong sense of personal integrity. Social workers come from a wide range of backgrounds; there is no single quality which makes a good social worker. If you are genuinely interested in the welfare of those with whom you will be working, are respectful of individual differences and choices, and do not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, sexual preference, religion, physical/mental ability, ethnicity, etc., social work may be the career for you. Many social service agencies have volunteer programs. Volunteer work at such agencies may give you an opportunity to increase your skills in working with people, as well as allowing you to observe social workers in action.
3 I have been working for years do I still need to do a Field Placement? Yes Field instruction is a major part of the BSW degree program at the Faculty of Social Work. The field instruction program provides students with two opportunities to learn firsthand how to provide professional practice through a social service delivery system by undertaking educationally focused, progressively more demanding and complex professional social work interventions. Field instruction will be provided by University appointed (university or agency-based) field instructors who have expertise in the generic principles, knowledge, and skills that can be applied to a wide range of fields of practice. The method of instruction will include individual and/or group seminars designed to assist the student to integrate theory with practice. This instruction is provided on a weekly basis. Active participation is expected of the student in all phases of the field instruction program including during field orientation in their individual agency placements. These orientations are conducted at the beginning of the academic year. Students may be placed in a variety of appropriate agencies or departments as their field placement sites. These will include: schools, probation, gerontology, child, family, medical, mental health, occupational, disability focused, and ethnically sensitive services providing a variety of intervention skills with individuals, families, groups, communities and policy initiatives. Once the student has completed the prerequisite courses they will work with the Distance Delivery Field Coordinator to set up a field placement in their community. How long has this program been in existence? The Distance Delivery Social Work Program was introduced in 1994 to allow individuals who are living in remote locations and who are employed in social services to complete the B.S.W. Degree program. How long will this program take to complete? The program is designed for part-time study, enabling students to complete an undergraduate degree while working in their communities. The courses towards the completion of the B.S.W. Degree with the Michif Cohort will be offered over a 5 year period with two courses being offered in each fall, winter and summer term. If students have received credits from other university programs, they can reduce the number of courses it takes to complete the degree. I have taken some University already. Can I transfer those credits into the program? At the point of admission, our Admissions office will assess your submitted transcripts to see if any courses previously taken from another institution are transferable into the program. Social Work credits can be transferred in from another accredited program on an individual basis, however, our Admissions office must first assess the request to ensure that they meet our University transfer standards. If you have already completed a degree from an accredited educational institution, the Admissions office will grant you 51 credit hours, thereby satisfying the required elective hours needed to complete the program.
