Course description:

Older people have moved from being a marginal concern in the middle of the 20th century, to one of central importance for social work in this century. The specific nature of social work lies in transversal understanding of older people, their needs, and in the assertion of the user as a partner in the helping process.

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
