Case Management Certificate Program
Mission and Objectives
The Case Management Certificate Program at the Rhode Island College School of Social Work prepares students for entry level case management practice by providing knowledge-based and value-informed education concerned with improving social conditions as well as individual well-being of people. As with all components of the School of Social Work, the Case Management Certificate Program emphasizes preparing practitioners to work with oppressed groups; seek to alleviate injustice, discrimination and poverty; create social policies and resources that meet basic human needs and enhance the quality of life; create accessible, responsible, accountable human service programs, and to deliver quality helping services to those in need of assistance and support.
As a distinct program within the School of Social Work, the Case Management Certificate Program is designed to prepare students for generalist case management practice. The generalist perspective stresses that the case manager's focus is on social problems and human needs. The generalist approach recognizes the connection between private troubles and public issues, as well as between personal and social change.
