Using theories and models that address risk, resilience and complexity, students develop a critical understanding of human behavior and the assessment, planning and intervention phases of the social work process in complex situations. Purposeful attention is given to understanding complex systems using systemic theory to consider the interconnected nature of personal and social issues. Critical thinking and professional judgement to engage in risk assessment and adopt best practice using strengths based and adversarial growth perspectives are also considered.
