Students are introduced to the knowledge base, ethics and values of social work. The everyday realities of social workers are explored in historical, theoretical, and ethical frameworks.

Concepts of resistance, power, ideology and critical selfreflection ground the course. Students develop and apply frameworks for ethical decision-making in practice
