Course description:

Deinstitutionalisation has become central to social work, as it changes the lives of service users, its multidisciplinary work, its organisation, methods and the epistemological position. We learn from the experiences of people who have experienced institutionalisation and deinstitutionalisation, and how to prevent mini institutionalisation and trans-institutionalisation in the community.

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 fall period are working together on the topics that transverse the boundaries of course themes.

Collaborative courses in the fall:

Social Work and Social Policies

Social Work and Deinstitutionalisation

Social Work with Old Age

Social Work and Spirituality

Transversal topics:

Long-term Care

Social Work in Natural and Political Catastrophes

Social Work and Activism
