The Social Work and Social Policies course is a part of the annual School of Social Work Theory and Practice in Dubrovnik, Croatia. As its title suggests, its main focus is on the relationship between social work and social policy, with a particular emphasis on comparative, regional and global dimensions. It has traditionally explored the relationship between different welfare state and social policy models and their implications for social work.
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
