Summaries collection for June 2017

Although the community is traditionally a place where social work has been established and developed it seems that in recent decades this tradition has faded away. Social workers are less involved in direct work with communities and community development is more a political phrase than a reality. Social workers have to rethink their role in the community, especially when it comes to the questions of solidarity, principles of participation, empowerment, respecting human rights and personal dignity.

This year we will apply a new format of courses in order to allow more collaboration among the courses of The School for Social Work Theory and Practice. This year all four courses from the spring period are working together on the topics that transverse the boundaries of course themes.

Collaborative courses in the spring:

Social Work with Youth in Conflict with Law

Social Work with Children and Families

Community Social Work

Social Work Theories and Methods

Transversal topics:

Social Service Management

Legal Frame and Social Process

Families Facing Multiple Challenges
