Clinical Social Work Practice—Our Specialization & Our Commitment
Clinical social work is defined by the idea that in order to understand someone, you must work with what is both inside and outside of that person, the micro and the macro. The work is informed by your client’s thoughts, emotions, behaviors, relationships – but always in social, economic, political, and cultural context, the inner and the outer are never separate. Clinical social work and social justice are inextricably linked and we have been pioneering their integration for over a generation. Our M.S.W. program provides a theoretically-grounded, relationship-based, culturally-informed approach to working with individuals, families and groups to promote healing, growth and empowerment.
Our 27-month master's degree program alternates ten weeks of intensive curricular coursework with two 8-month supervised internships to provide you with the optimum learning experience.
"There has to be intentional accountability and call in of harm for there to be mutuality or solidarity for anything we do in social work."
