What will I learn?
You will learn to prepare intake reports; assess a client’s skills and needs; refer clients to required services; monitor client progress; provide crisis intervention; liaise with other agencies on behalf of your clients and much more. You will follow introductory courses in Psychology, Sociology and Social Work in Canada while developing your understanding of the relationship between family dynamics, at-risk populations, mental health and addiction.

You will also participate in a field-related practicum where you will put your new skills into practice and gain valuable insight into the field of community service work.
