Students apply major family therapy models to assessing and intervening with families experiencing problems. The models are compared from a multicultural perspective in terms of their theoretical assumptions, intervention methods, and empirical evidence regarding treatment outcomes. Application of the models is placed within the problem-solving model and guided by ecosystems, strengths and empowerment perspectives. The course emphasizes family work that is appropriate to individual and family developmental stages and to diverse family types. Attention is given to family-centered practice in different social work fields of practice and settings and to the development of self-awareness of the practitioner.

MCCP Policy Practice
4 Semester Credits
In this course, MCCP students learn how organizational and social policies affect the delivery of clinical social work services in multicultural contexts. Students build upon the core policy practice competencies gained in their MSW foundation courses. Clinical social work practice is distinguished from other professional clinical practice by this use of the person-in-environment perspective. The multi-cultural lens sharpens focus on both the strengths that come with diversity and the discrimination and oppression, such as racism, that policies can uphold or undo.

MCCP with Groups
4 Semester Credits
This course prepares students for advanced multicultural groupwork within a clinical practice. This course builds on the foundational curriculum with particular attention to clinical practice skills. Students will focus on the process of individual empowerment and change in the context of clinical group processes. Applied theories of human development, change, and resilience are integrated with theories of group processes, group leadership, and group communication as a critical knowledge base for planning, intervention, and leadership. Students will develop an understanding of phases of group practice, intervention skills, and ethical practices applied in a groupwork environment. In this course, the reflexive use of self and the cautious use of evidence based practice serve as the foundation for culturally responsive groupwork. Students will consider how their social identity and position influences similar and mixed social identity groups and their processes.

MCCP Supervision
2 Semester Credits
Building upon the research to date on social work supervision, this course presents the functions of supervision (administrative, educational, supportive) as they interrelate in achieving the primary purpose of clinical supervision: assuring that client services prevent difficulties in client functioning and restore or enhance the biopsycohosocial and spiritual functioning of individuals, families and groups served by supervisees. Students hone skills necessary for each of the stages of the supervisory process (planning, beginning, work, and ending), and they build a repertoire of supervisory questions that have been associated in research with fostering success in meeting clients’ goals. Students learn to differentiate supervision with its dimensions of hierarchical power, responsibility, liability, and authority from peer consultation. They gain competencies in both individual and group supervision, as well as competencies related to consultation with a multicultural lens to advance the application of theories and models of clinical social work practice.
