Social Work adds LGBT course this fall

A new topic has been added to the Fall, 2012 Social Work Course Program Schedule. Marygrove’s Social Work department will be presenting its first section of “Working with LGBT Individuals and Communities,” (SW 200-01 — Special Topics) and it promises to be an interesting and popular course.

This 2-credit course is designed to enhance your professional competence in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals and communities. Course content explores social work practice at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels and across social, political, and economic realms.

Take this course and raise your awareness of personal, interpersonal, and institutional values and beliefs and learn how biases may manifest as prejudice, discrimination, and oppression.

The National Association of Social Workers’ (NASW) Code of Ethics will guide discussions around viewing sexual orientation through a professional lens.

Instructed by Kalimah Johnson, Asst. Prof., Social Work Department, the course will meet on Tuesdays from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. in MC 327. Capacity is for 18 students, so get registered fast, while there’s still time!

To enroll in this course, contact the Enrollment Center toll free at (866) 903-3033.
