Bachelor of Social Work - Foundations of Social Work Practice

SWRK 2006  Foundations of Social Work Practice


SWRK 1007 and SWLF 1006


Three hours per week for one term.




Students are introduced to the foundations of social work and how the profession’s core values are applied in practice at the macro, messo and micro level. They further conceptualize anti-oppressive, structural and feminist approaches and Indigenous theories to address power and privilege, inequality, discrimination and intersectionality. The social work process is developed including a holistic or bio-psychosocial approach and cultural competence. Practice in northern, rural and remote communities is also examined.
