CalSWEC Curriculum Competencies

The 2017 CalSWEC Curriculum Competencies for Public Child Welfare in California (updated August 15, 2017) reflects a comprehensive revision and reorganization aligned with the Council on Social Work Education's (CSWE's) Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS).

Departing 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.

The CalSWEC Curriculum Competencies are periodically revised to reflect current developments in social work practice and education and serve as a model for collaborative curriculum development across the nation.

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.
