CYC 240

Ethical Decision-Making in Child and Youth Care Practice

Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-0-0

Students are acquainted with the professional values that guide work with children, youth and families, as well as some of the ethical tensions that arise. Through a combination of readings, written assignments and discussions, students are supported to develop an integrated approach to ethical decision-making that situates the 'doing of ethics' within diverse relational, cultural and sociopolitical contexts. The goal is to pursue more just and equitable futures for all children, youth and families.
