Course description:

This course seeks to explore the development of social work knowledge and its use in different countries.  It examines a range of theoretical models and takes into account the significant influence of traditions, culture and politics on the development of diverse models in different countries and on social work as a whole. Previous topics have included: construction of social work identity, risk, assessment and management, measuring success and outcomes, knowledge base in working with diverse groups, ethical dilemmas in regard to management and policies, improving strategies and methods; methods and techniques in different countries, strategies in the climate of austerity.

The course is an integral part of Social Work School of Theory and Practice designed for social work professors, and students, but also practitioners and service-users. Combined in an open fortmat with other social work courses at IUC we look at transversal topics that cut across specific topics of the courses. This year we will address the issues of: Social work as the anti-colonialist practice

Participants are encouraged to contribute either in the form of a paper, workshop or any other appropriate means of presenting. The pattern of the courses is flexible and will be collaboratively determined at the outset of a symposium.

The programme is offered at postgraduate level. Advanced, highly motivated undergraduate students are accepted with at least one letter of reference. The language of the school is English.
