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
Social Work in Natural and Political Catastrophes
Social Work and Activism
