Competencies

The 2017 CalSWEC Curriculum Competencies for Public Child Welfare, Behavioral Health, and Aging in California reflects a comprehensive revision and reorganization aligned with the Council on Social Work Education’s (CSWE’s) Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). 

Departuring from previous versions, the 2017 CalSWEC Curriculum Competencies integrates content, processes, and behaviors associated with both generalist practice and specialized practice in the areas of public child welfare, behavioral health, and aging in a single document.

CalSWEC began the most recent competencies revision process in January 2016 after CSWE in 2015 revised its EPAS for Baccalaureate and Master’s Social Work Programs by which it sets national standards for the identification and assessment of competencies in the education of social work students.
