A new special topics course has been added to the Social Work Course Program Schedule. The Marygrove College Social Work Department will be presenting its second section of “Working with LGBT Individuals and Communities,” (SW 200-01 — Special Topics) and it promises to be an interesting and popular course!
Working with LGBT Individuals and Communities
Description: 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.
