Students investigate the challenges and opportunities associated with generalist social work practice in rural and northern settings. Drawing on theories of community engagement, students explore how community practice may harness the collective knowledge and strengths of citizens to effect social change. Case studies are used to apply theory to practice. Issues related to ethics, community development, and working with Aboriginal, Métis, and Francophone peoples are central to the course.
