Critical Social Work Practice

Units: 1.5

Introduces strategies for socially just social work through the exploration of Indigenous, feminist, anti-racist, anti-colonialist and post-structural approaches to practice. The development of critical consciousness (historical, socio-cultural and political influences on professional and personal identities and experiences) is emphasized, and shifting sources and forms of professional power and authority are examined. Specific skills will include interpersonal communication, problem solving, and working in alliance and solidarity in the context of increased inequality and diminished resources.
