Social Work Practice in Mental Health

Part-Time MSW Program Advanced Practice Field Unit

The Advanced Practice Mental Health field unit provides an integrative seminar and supervised practice of clinical social work, including assessment, diagnosis, treatment (including psychotherapy and counseling), client-centered advocacy, consultation, and evaluation. Students are placed in community-based settings where the primary focus is to provide treatment to children, adolescents and adults who experience a wide range of DSM-IV-TR-recognized mental health problems. The seminar perspective for mental health treatment is interpersonal, interactional, and problem-and-action oriented.
