SW 741 - Interdisciplinary Problem Solving
Section: 002 In Michigan, many children are subject to formal child abuse and neglect investigations, and those children are at high risk of subsequent maltreatment, poor school performance, foster care placement, and other adverse life outcomes. Multidisciplinary teams of students will develop tools to identify at-risk children, mitigate risks of maltreatment and removal from the home, and engage with at-risk families. Students will incorporate evidence and ideas from education, law, health sciences, public policy, social work, information, and other fields to develop innovative solutions.
Term: FA 2019
Subject: Social Work (SW)

Note: This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI). Narratives around combatting human trafficking are narrowly construed, with white cisgender girls typically portrayed as the victims of heteronormative sex trafficking. Such narratives, and interventions meant to aid trafficking victims, overlook LGBTQ+ communities and fail to address their needs. In this class, students will work with stakeholders and incorporate insights from law, social work, public policy, health sciences, and other fields to identify interventions designed to help LGBTQ+ trafficking victims. This class is open to all University of Michigan graduate and professional students. Please note: Non-Law students are responsible for checking with their own schools, colleges, or units to learn if a PSI class will count toward graduation or other departmental requirements. Non-law graduate/professional students may apply for the course using the PSI application system (https://problemsolving.law.umich.edu/) March 18 - April 1, 2019. After the initial application period, students seeking to apply can contact problemsolving@umich.edu.

Note: This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI). Some states, including California and Minnesota, reduce toxic airborne emissions and promote better health outcomes for residents by measuring the cumulative impact of hazardous air pollutants. In this class, students will determine why Michigan has failed to adopt such a cumulative impact approach. Students will incorporate ideas from environmental studies, law, health sciences, design, social work, and other fields to advance a solution that accounts for multiple, geographically-concentrated pollution sources and promotes environmental justice for all Michigan residents. This class is open to all University of Michigan graduate and professional students. Please note: Non-Law students are responsible for checking with their own schools, colleges, or units to learn if a PSI class will count toward graduation or other departmental requirements.

Note: This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI). The U.S.' unemployment insurance (UI) system faces challenges, including outdated eligibility requirements, fallout from the financial crisis, and insufficient funding. Students will study state UI system vulnerabilities and explore novel federal public policy and financing strategies to develop a plan to improve and modernize the UI safety net, drawing on insights from law, public policy, business, social work, economics and other relevant fields. This class is open to all University of Michigan graduate and professional students.
