SWK5012: Cultural Competence and Social Work Practice with Diverse Populations is offered online by Capella University. This course addresses diversity and difference, power and privilege, and oppression, as they relate to social work practice. Throughout the course, learners become knowledgeable of one's biases toward race, ethnicity, culture, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, social and economic status, political ideology, and disability; how those biases contribute to discrimination and oppression; and the ethics of culturally competent best practice. In addition, learners reflect on personal values, beliefs, and behaviors that may limit their ability to practice effective social work with people of diverse backgrounds. Through the use of technology, learners then engage in strategy and leadership best practices for dealing with biases in social work practice. For MSW and MSW-Advanced Standing learners only. Must be taken during the first quarter by learners who have been admitted to the MSW-Advanced Standing degree program. Prerequisite(s): SWK5007; completion of or concurrent registration in SWK5008.
