Child and Family Welfare Concentration
The Child and Family Welfare concentration will provide educational curriculum to students interested in working in an interdisciplinary context with children and their families. This concentration was developed with input from the Nassau County Department of Social Services, the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the Family and Children's Association and other community-based organizations' personnel. It incorporates the knowledge, values and skills that professionals need to effectively work with children and their families across a broad range of social issues and in multiple settings. After completing their first-year M.S.W. coursework, students will develop their understanding about policies and services specific to children and families, family violence across the lifespan, community-based practice with children and families, and childhood psychopathology.
