Social Work interns work with our Victim’s Advocates to learn about the criminal justice system from the perspective of the crime victim. Interns will have the opportunity to be involved in every part of the court process. The two main objectives of Victim’s Services are to reduce victim frustration by working to simplify, the often complicated, criminal justice process and to offer comprehensive services to support the crime victim or the crime victim’s surviving family members.
The Fayette Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office can provide a unique practicum experience for both BSW and MSW candidates. The opportunities are limited only by the imagination and initiative of the student. Our agency has dynamic partnerships in the community and students will benefit from participation in those collaborations. Social Work students will encounter an exciting mix of both micro and macro social work practice through direct assistance.
