Communication for Social Service Workers
This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
Social service workers create and maintain a variety of records and documents related to their interactions with colleagues and clients. These records and documents must be coherent and objective assessments of the social service worker's observations, actions and interventions. Other methods of communication involve drafting letters and reports directed to other professional agencies and organizations. Documentation created by the social service worker may be required for and used in legal proceedings. Emphasis continues to be placed on fundamental grammar and writing mechanics. Students demonstrate critical-thinking skills and other communication attributes that are necessary in any professional workplace setting.
