20661 SOWK 789 01 Independent Research Project: Clinical Use of Forgiveness DiBlasio Approved as an Advanced Research requirement for students in the Clinical concentration for the specializations of Families & Children; Behavioral Health (Mental Health); Aging; and Health. Students will review the clinical forgiveness intervention used in a study and will become familiar with the overall results. The data from this study have been collected from marital couples that were assigned to one of four experimental groups: forgiveness treatment; spiritual forgiveness treatment; problem-solving treatment and a no-treatment control. These data have been collected and the course will NOT involve the collection of data. Students will be asked to become familiar with the test questions that were used and from them to think creatively in designing a way to analyze the concepts of the study. The instructor will take the student’s ideas and he will design a statistical way to test them on the existing data and in turn explain the results to the student. The instructor will then give guidance to each student for how to report the findings. No previous knowledge in experimental statistics is necessary. The assignments include a review of the literature paper and a final written report. This course REQUIRES students who can: (a) work independently, think creatively and demonstrate initiative and motivation; (b) have flexibility and patience to be involved in an advance research pursuit where knowledge and familiarity builds as the course progresses; (c) attend ALL Monday class meetings (some classes will be devoted to individual/small group meetings) AND once or twice during the semester the student must be able to arrange a time on campus to meet with the instructor other than on Mondays; (d) invest out-of-class time to reading and other class activities (students accountable to document sufficient weekly out-of-class efforts). 4E14

Students will learn how to implement a research project by creating research questions, collecting their own data, using excel to analyze the data, and writing up a report that may be submitted for publication. We will delve into Public Health Financial Social Work literature through structured class discussion, learn the foundation skills of research, practice those skills in class and in the real world. Students will also become aware of their own perceptions of health and household economics and the impact of household economics on client health. 2E10

In this course, the student will be introduced to key concepts, processes, measurements, and related theories across diverse practice settings (i.e. social work, law, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, and medicine) to be able to effectively address IPV in practice. Issues related to those who experience and witness IPV as well as those who perpetrate IPV, including social and cultural factors (e.g., race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status) associated with IPV, including theory practice on intersectionality. The student will explore various strategies established for ending IPV and clinical, policy, and social change interventions from an interprofessional perspective.

27025 SWCL 779 01 Interprofessional Approaches to Healthcare Delivery Bellin This 1-credit, 2-day intensive clinical course offers graduate social work students an opportunity to interact and practice alongside other UMB professional students. Core elements of interprofessional collaboration, including shared decision-making, open communication, mutual role understanding, and the development of joint treatment plans, are presented and critically reflected upon in the context of healthcare encounters. To prepare social work students to be effective colleagues on healthcare teams, this course uses: (1) brief lectures on the meaning and practice of interprofessional collaboration; (2) a clinical encounter with standardized patients and nursing students at the Clinical Simulation Lab; and, (3) a case-based learning activity to catalyze collaborative treatment planning with other UMB professional students. SWCL 779 meets in person on two dates: 1. Friday, March 9, 2018 at the SSW: 9:30AM – 5:00PM 2. Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the Clinical Simulation Lab housed in the School of Nursing from 9:00AM – 12:00PM OR 1 - 4PM.
