Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course investigates the status of caregivers in Canadian society, in relation to their contribution to the welfare of children and families. Care-giving as it applies to children, youth, and the elderly is examined, and societal recognition for the role is assessed. Some of the issues focused on are the following: work, values, and recognition; paid and unpaid work; volunteerism and professionalism; and the division of work by gender. Implications for children and the family are considered.  This course may be credited towards Social Welfare and Social Development.
