Curricular Guide for Economic Well-Being Practice

Economic well-being is outlined and context is offered that will articulate the relevance of the concept in social work and to social work practice. The Curricular Guide for Economic Well-Being Practice further defines the components of economic well-being and links the concept to the nine competencies. The connections to the social work competencies are further explicated in a curricular map that links recommended curriculum materials to the essential knowledge, values, skills, cognitive and affective processes, and behaviors related to economic well-being that support each competency. Information about curricular resources is also provided, linked to the competencies. This resource will provide the guidance needed to feature economic well-being prominently in social work education and better prepare students for today’s practice demands.
