Human Services Field Practicum and Seminar in Generalist Practice II is the second in a two-course sequence designed to offer students the opportunity to apply values, concepts, skills and competencies acquired in the classroom to supervised participation in a human services agency. In addition to studying the structure and function of a Human Service setting and the characteristics and issues of individuals receiving services, students strengthen fundamental generalist practice skills by observing experienced practitioners and interacting with individuals, families, groups and community members at a level appropriate to the placement level and agency setting. Students provide direct service, maintain records, participate in professional supervision, give and receive peer feedback and critically evaluate their own performance as entry-level generalist practitioners providing direct service to clients. Bi-weekly seminars provide students with the opportunity to integrate what they learn in class with what they learn in the field. The requirements of this course include completion of 125 hours in the field placement agency and 15 hours of classroom-based seminar offered on campus in alternate weeks during the semester. Prerequisite: HUS 211 and HUS 212.
