Initiated as a Social Welfare Section within the Department of Sociology and Social Welfare in 1950 in the then College of Liberal Arts, the present College of Social Work and Community Development (CSWCD) became a separate Department of Social Work by 1961 and evolved into the Institute of Social Work and Community Development in 1969 through R.A. 5174 which was passed in 1967. Its reclassification as a full-fledged college was prompted by the University’s move to standardize the nomenclature of academic units performing similar functions. The CSWCD offers graduate and undergraduate programs in both social work and community development, as well as graduate programs on women and development.

REDO Training Course Offerings 2011

The Sikhay Kilos Development Association Inc, is a partner institution of the UP-CSWCD composed of its faculty, staff and students. As its name connotes, “Sikhay” means conscientious and principled initiative while “Kilos” literally means action. Sikhay Kilos aims to advance the welfare concerns of the poor, marginalized and/or vulnerable groups and communities in the Philippines. Further, it seeks to develop, initiate and implement programs and projects in social development; disseminate knowledge and establish partnerships and linkages in pursuing its goals. These goals are in line with the vision of the College that focus on the promotion of justice, peace and sustainable well-being shared by the Filipino people and the global community.

The Research and Extension for Development Office (REDO) is one of the academic units of the UP-CSWCD who shares this mission and carry this out through its research, extension and publication programs. Specifically, REDO’s functions include (1) theory-building as support to academe; (2) capability building as support to people’s movement and/or social change through training of community leaders and development professionals; and (3) advocacy and networking to influence policies and programs in relation to social development endeavors.

As an extension arm of the College, REDO conducts training programs for development workers and community leaders in the areas of social development. Below are the training courses to be offered for the last quarter of 2011.

Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation of Social Development Projects

People can only claim ownership of community development projects if they have participated meaningfully in its development and management. The three-day, live-out seminar workshop in Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation aims to equip social development practitioners with knowledge and skills to strengthen people’s involvement, enhance their capacities and increase their confidence in the decision making processes, thereby, sustaining development projects. Further, the training course aims to enhance the understanding and capabilities of participants in developing appropriate participatory monitoring and evaluation systems for their respective community projects and programs.

The training program is intended for Program/Project Managers, Development Planners, Program/Project Evaluators/Analysts, Community Organizers, Community Development Workers, Social Workers, other Social Development Practitioners, Social Researchers and Social Science Graduate Students who are into projects in agriculture, environment, housing, health, education, livelihood, disaster preparedness, infrastructure or any programs and services involving poor or vulnerable groups like farmers, informal settlers, children, women, the elderly and people with disabilities, among others.

Community Organizing Amidst Evolving Concerns in Social Development

This course aims to provide the participants with an overview of the concepts, processes, and approaches in organizing work in the context of Philippine reality. In-depth analysis of case studies on the emerging trends in social movements such as involvement of people’s organizations’ leaders in local and national governance, gender mainstreaming and the integration of disaster risk reduction and management in organizing will be presented. The course seeks to enhance the organizing skills of the participants that will aid them in preparing a re-entry plan with their respective organizations.

Dates: November 15-18, 2011 Fee: Php 10,000.00 Contact Person: Celeste F. Vallejos/Michelle Madali/Mary Antonnette F. de Leon Venue: Bulwagang Tandang Sora (BTS), UP-CSWCD

Training on Inclusive Planning for Local Development Planners Focused on Older Persons (OPs) and Persons with Disabilities (PWDs)

The three day, live-out training seeks to build the awareness, knowledge, and skills of local government executives, planning officers, local social welfare officers, educators, health workers, PWD and OP representatives in including the needs, entitlements, and capacities of the vulnerable sectors, particularly the OPs and the PWDs, in development planning.

The inclusive approach to development planning is an alternative paradigm in assisting the vulnerable sectors particularly the older persons (OPs) and persons with disability (PWDs) by integrating their specific issues and recognizing their rights and potentials in mainstream policies, programs and services. This perspective is drawn from the State’s mandate of its responsibility to create a safe environment where its citizens can live full, satisfying lives. Everyone has the right to assert his/her entitlements which the State must provide.

Training on Case Management

Case management is a vital element of competent social work practice. It is the process of providing services whereby a professional social worker collaboratively assesses the needs of the client and the client’s family, when appropriate, and arranges, coordinates, monitors, evaluates, and advocates for a package of multiple services to meet the specific client’s complex needs.

The Social Work Case Management Training course is designed to improve the social workers’ capacity as case managers in delivering unique and quality service to client groups. It will focus on improving the skills, knowledge and attitude of case managers in helping clients using strengths perspective, rights-based and gender-responsive approaches. It will also be a venue for practitioners to share, reflect and learn from each other’s experiences as case managers and to locate social work case management in an interdisciplinary practice of helping.

Participatory Action Research

Participatory Action Research (PAR) as a method of conducting research involves the researchers and the constituencies of the research as equal partners in all of its phases. This requires an understanding and respect for the unique perspective and resources that each PAR team member brings to the effort.

The training on Participatory Action Research (PAR) focuses on enhancing the capabilities of the participants in conducting a participatory action research. By the end of the training, the participants will be able to understand the role and functions of PAR in development, appreciate the fundamental concepts of PAR, its nature, basic elements, components and principles; learn the processes and methods in conducting PAR, and develop a PAR Design.

Enhancing the Supervisor’s Capability in Mentoring/Coaching

The three day, live-out training aims to enhance the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of middle level supervisors in providing the needed support to improve the functioning of the supervisees. The focus is on making them proactive in intervening when there are performance gaps among the supervisees and systematically and purposively providing opportunities for their growth in their work. Mentoring is an important task of the supervisor. However, his/her administrative responsibilities usually take precedence over upgrading the supervisee’s performance. Coaching is guiding and instructing an employee on how to do a job so that it satisfies performance goals. On the other hand, mentoring is providing guidance, advice, and encouragement through an ongoing one-on-one work relationship (Samuel Certo, Supervision, 2006)
