社会工作硕士(MSW)
(一年全日制/ 两年兼读制)
  • 课程目标

    社会工作硕士是一个兼读制专业硕士学位,它专为受过本科社工训练并希望增加更多专业知识和提高训练技巧而设,尤其是在青年工作和精神健康实践这两方面。此课程在原来的基础上不断加入新的学术元素、引入新课程以应对社会工作者和当事人所面临不断增加的挑战,比如物质滥用、青少年亲密关系间的虐待、家庭暴力以及精神病人困境。本课程强调小班教学,以促进学生之间以及学生与老师之间的交流。

    社会工作硕士课程着重培养学生的两种专业素质:青少年工作和精神健康实践(学生可选择其中一项重点研习)。目前,香港其他大学提供的进修社会工作课程尚未有青少年工作领域的专业研习,同时我们的心理健康实践专业强调危机管理和有精神疾病的家人两个主题。两者都是独一无二的专业研习,尤其是适合从事儿童和青少年工作、家庭服务、健康和心理健康社会工作的人士。

    两年兼读制硕士课程分为两个专业研习:
    青少年工作 心理健康实践
    拥有精通青少年工作与批评、充权以及文化实践专业的专业教师团队 满足最新的家庭与精神健康领域的挑战;强调对理论的理解与精神健康议题的批判
    在最新的理论和研究基础上,加强现实案例的反思与重组 强调华人背景的精神健康实践和社会工作实践,注重社会心理的、临床的和不同情况和背景下的风险评估
    反思性教学,推动专业化的发展 发展心理健康和全球化性的本土技术的实践能力
    课程特色:
    1. 生动的、反思的学习模式
    2. 既强调全面化,也强调专业化
    3. 专业领域的专家指导学术研讨
    4. 海外访问学者开展讲座与学术研讨会
