  FUNDAMENTALS OF PSYCHOLOGY FOR SOCIAL WORK

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2020-21

El perfil profesional del/la trabajador/a social le sitúa en permanente contacto con personas, ya sean afectadas por problemas personales y sociales, sus entornos familiares y socioculturales; ya sean agentes políticos, sociales, profesionales o institucionales, con quienes deberá coordinarse. La asignatura aporta conocimientos básicos sobre el comportamiento humano y sus posibles patologías, dotando al alumnado de capacidades para la detección, análisis y toma de decisiones en todos los ámbitos anteriormente expuestos.

Por otra parte, la asignatura permitirá al alumno/a de Trabajo Social adquirir las competencias que le facilitarán en el futuro el establecimiento de relaciones profesionales para la intervención, interacción, seguimiento o apoyo de personas y grupos, así como la valoración de situaciones de crisis, especialmente personales; la identificación, valoración, prevención o intervención en situaciones de riesgo, especialmente en el ámbito de la psicopatología; el diseño de proyectos o la toma de decisiones que afectan a personas y grupos y el conocimiento y gestión de los riesgos propios de la profesión, especialmente los relacionados con el estrés. Todas ellas competencias claramente objetivables, generales y específicas del título. El diseño de las prácticas y del trabajo autónomo del alumno/a le permitirá desarrollar competencias informáticas y comunicacionales, tal y como se establece en las competencias transversales de la Universidad de Alicante.

La asignatura aporta una visión general de la Psicología como estudio científico del comportamiento humano. Forma parte de la materia básica del grado, denominada Desarrollo Humano en el Ciclo Vital y el Medio Social. Transversalmente, apoya los contenidos impartidos en un importante número de las asignaturas que componen el título, pero muy especialmente en Psicología Evolutiva para el Trabajo Social, Psicología Social y Análisis Psicosocial de Programas y Colectivos de Intervención.
