Paradigms of Practice (12 points)


Leader: Karen Crinall

Gippsland First semester 2004 (Day)
Gippsland First semester 2004 (OCL)

Synopsis: This unit offers a critical examination of social welfare practice across the different modes of intervention - individual and family, group, community, organisation and policy. Whilst the lower level units have separated the study of these different foci of intervention, this unit presents an integrated view of social welfare practice through the examination of particular practice theories and their derivation from broader social theories. Students are encouraged to pursue recent and relevant readings according to their chosen theoretical perspectives.
