CASE MANAGEMENT FOR INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES

The Case Management for Individuals and Families concentration prepares students to complete assessments, advocacy work, and case management in a variety of social service agencies, such as county departments of Job and Family Services, rehabilitation centers, juvenile courts, and agencies serving older adults.  

Case managers provide assistance to individuals and families by coordinating services and access to resources.  Students in this concentration will learn the skills necessary to understand clients' needs and goals, and develop a plan to achieve these goals with the resources and services available to them.  Case managers  build strong relationships with community agencies at an individual and organizational level in order to best serve their clients' needs. Case managers form long and short term relationships with clients based on their individual or family needs.
