2SWS
3ECTS

Lecture contents

The students engage with the fundamentals of conversation guidance, bearing in mind the different settings (mandated settings, first conversation, challenging forms of communication). They receive an overview of the different forms of communication in Social Work (i.e. counselling, negotiating, informing, mediation). Techniques and activities within counselling, such as listening actively, sending I-messages, perceptions, asking helpful questions und dealing with silence are practiced. The fundamentals of the setting and relationship-building are conveyed, and an engagement with (im)partiality takes place.
Ideal scenarios and structural patterns of counselling conversations in settings with individual clients, families or systems are central to this module. These are used as a starting point for a professionally sound reflection about conversations, which are simulated in role play. Different consultative approaches (i.e. systemic, solution-focused, person-centred, psychoanalytical) are presented and practiced using role playing.

Lecture contents

The students reflect on the demands placed on writing a thesis regarding research strategy, topical focus and question. They deepen their knowledge about different ways of working, in terms of analysing the literature and familiarising themselves with the formal rules. They practice the scientific argumentation and analysis of subject-specific areas of discourse, learn to assess resources and understand the criteria for assessing academic writing.
The students are supported during the preparation of the exposé and narrowing of their topical scope. Concrete sources are discussed with them and they receive feedback on their writing and research process, while working on their exposé. The exposé is presented and discussed with the students during the module, and a general structure and time plan for the thesis is elaborated. Furthermore, they determine preliminary presuppositions in relation to the expected findings of their BA thesis.

Lecture contents

Reflection and in-depth engagement with their professional identity development as professionals in the field of Social Work, is at the centre of this seminar, specifically considering their approaching graduation. The subjective, respective group seminar experiences of the participants are connected to the field-related work placement.
Information about the Social Work labour market situation and working conditions, about placement and application procedures within the scope of the practice fields, allow for a realistic assessment on current developments in the professional context of Social Work and aid the decision making process on entering the profession. Through individual research, exchange with professionals and visiting events, the relevant aspects of Social Work practice are put in focus and development perspectives – on an individual and professional level –, are designed or deepened. Likewise, professionally relevant advocacy groups are presented and their contribution to professionalization processes conveyed.
