Critical Social Work Practices

Units: 1.5

Exploration of the application of various practice approaches, including narrative, solution-oriented, and embodied practices, which reflect examples of critical social work in action with individuals, groups, children, families and communities. Opportunities are provided to critically analyze the limitations and strengths of these practices through the lenses of marginalization and difference. The assumptions of professionalism and the wider context within which these particular types of interventions are practiced will also be interrogated.
