Drawing on Indigenous worldviews, students explore how wellness encompasses individuals, families, communities, and spiritual relationships. Students learn about the strengths of Indigenous worldviews in helping others and how they may be integrated into social work practice. The holistic approach will also inform an analysis of community services and infrastructure that are responsive to the needs of Indigenous Peoples.
