Christine Callahan, Research Associate Professor and co-authors Julie Birkenmaier, Liza Barros Lane and PhD graduate Sally Hageman have a new paper published in Journal of Social Work Education. ABSTRACT The Financial Capability and Asset Building (FCAB) for All Grand Challenge provides an impetus to increase financial content in social work education so that students and practitioners are prepared for practice that includes finances. This teaching note will describe the rationale for including FCAB within social work education and the fit with the profession. To provide guidance on curricular integration, the implementation of 4 course models will be described—online intensive course, stand-alone full course, an infused course, and a continuing education model. Course overviews and detailed FCAB content taught in each is described. Course content is mapped to the Council on Social Work Education’s Education Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). Educational implications about EPAS and policy suggestions are discussed. Birkenmaier, J., Lane, L. B., Callahan, C., & Hageman, S. A. (2020).
