Drawing from the literature on international social work and the authors' extensive diverse experiences in this area, this book identifies and describes the necessary components of international placements to help programs not only maximize learning for the student, but also meet the requirements of the field curriculum and CSWE standards. It presents a well-developed process for dealing with critical issues that typically emerge when placing students abroad and factors that field programs should consider prior to committing resources for the establishment of international placements and student exchange programs. Sample forms and documents, ranging from model affiliation agreements with foreign universities to online seminar syllabi, are provided on a CD that accompanies the book.
