This paper is an advanced study of selected theoretical models and the development of clinical problem-solving, counselling and resolution skills in professional practice with families. During the course of study students will learn to assess specific family situations and develop intervention plans, be able to identify ethical dilemmas and appropriate strategies for resolution. Students will be required to develop a personal framework for working for change with families which integrates the student's own values, experiences, culture, skills, and personality, with the application of social science knowledge. This paper has been designed to enable students to integrate a range of social work skills and methods for effective practice.
