Title: Are Students Prepared for Practice? An Assessment of Financial Capability and Asset Building in Social Work Education
Thursday, November 16th, 2017
Social workers, along with other human service professions, work with financially vulnerable clients. Many social workers, however, lack preparation to help clients improve their financial circumstances and manage their financial lives (Loke, et al., 2015). Although social work educators have begun to respond with curricula and other initiatives (CSWE, 2017; Frey, et al., 2017; Horwitz & Briar-Lawson, 2017; Sherraden, et al., 2017), we know little about the impact of these initiatives. This study reports on results of a survey that examines financial and economic content in social work education, and social work faculty assessment of its usefulness.
