Subject Title
Integrative Field Work Seminar

Subject Description
Field Work Seminar II provides students with the opportunity to discuss their field learning experiences with their Faculty Advisor and peers via facilitated spontaneous discussions. Students are provided the opportunity to identify and discuss reactions to field placement experiences in a reflective and constructive way. Through a range of methods, students will develop their professional attitudes, examine feelings about specific learning experiences and relate to their peers with insight, empathy and understanding.

During this sharing process, Field Seminar II integrates field placement experiences with theoretical concepts learned in the SSW-I Program. Students will develop their knowledge of the field of social services, with a particular focus on working with immigrants and refugees, in order to understand the context of the worker?s role in service delivery.
