S.S.W. Documentation and Record Keeping

S.S.W. Documentation and Record Keeping - CMM235
Record keeping is essential to social service work practice, and reflects professional values and legal and ethical obligations. Documentation supports professional observations, assessment and intervention strategies, and promotes integrated care and delivery of services that address client goals. In this course, students critically approach client interactions and produce documentation that is objective, culturally safe, and client centred. Emphasis is placed on research and applied writing skills reflective of the SSW profession, workplace practices, and legal frameworks relevant to Ontario. Through documentation, students further develop their professional skills and competence in strengths-based, anti-oppressive practice.
