About this Unit
This is an introductory unit which examines underlying theories of social welfare work, community work, youth work and international social development. Students will explore the ideological underpinnings of theories and discourses in the human services, particularly with regard to the impact of poverty, inequity and the experience of vulnerable populations. The contribution of other disciplines to knowledge and practice in these fields of practice will also be examined. This unit will focus on developing beginning skills in working with individuals (casework), working with groups, community work and working in human service organisations as a member of a team.
