The topics studied in this course change from semester-to-semester, as well as from instructor-to-instructor.
PALLIATIVE CARE AND END OF LIFE: This course is both an introduction to the study of thanatology (death and dying) and an opportunity to focus on questions surrounding life and death. As such, the course will examine the historical evolution of the socio-cultural influences that shape the current attitudes and practices of our death-related experiences. As we explore these death-related issues, we will utilize an interdisciplinary approach examining contributions from sociology, theology, medicine, psychology, philosophy and other relevant practices.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND MEDIATION: This course is an introduction to the theory and practice of conflict resolution with an emphasis on social work applications. Students will learn the communication skills necessary for conflict resolution processes. Topics covered will include neutrality skills, causes of conflict, intervention strategies, differential use of the conflict resolution process. Practical skills in mediation, negotiation and conciliation will be covered. Multi-party conflict resolution and application of conflict resolution skills to organizational practice will be touched on. Uses of mediation in divorce and custody cases, criminal justice and special education will be covered.
