  Course Description
Research indicates that Americans are engaging in a diverse array of intimate relationships. While these might involve legal marriage, there are also numerous other relationship forms and circumstances. Interventions in Intimate Relationships builds on students' generalist practice skills developed in Interventions I and II.  A goal of the course is to further the students¿ clinical skills, especially their utilization of an evidence-based, trauma-informed and human rights approach to practice. This course provides students with the opportunity to explicitly integrate theory, research and practice with all manner of intimate partners. We will focus on clinical skills needed to facilitate the social work processes of:   (1) engaging partners in a therapeutic relationship, (2) assessing problem situations, (3) setting intervention goals and objectives, (4) selecting effective implementation strategies, (5) evaluating the results of interventions, and (6) terminating the clinical relationship. The goals of this course are to expose the professional social work practitioner to the broad range of clinical interventions that are available for working with intimate partners. The traditional field of couples therapy is best seen as a variant or sub-type of family therapy, but the underlying assumptions of traditional models of family therapy may not be relevant to the diverse array of intimate partnerships. This course will assess the applicability of traditional models, as well as strategies and techniques that have grown from these models to intervene with people seeking assistance with their intimate relationships.
