SOCW 491

Integration of Indigenous Approaches to Healing and Helping

Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-0

Students will continue to explore traditional and contemporary approaches to helping and healing in their communities that they began in 391. Indigenous elders, political leaders and human service workers will again play a central role in this course. Students will also be challenged to critically and holistically integrate these approaches into an examination, articulation and development of their own ethical perspectives.


  • Limited to Indigenous students of North America or with permission of the department.
