In this course, you will learn about core aspects of social work in a diverse society. You will examine biological, psychological, social, and cultural dimensions of human lives; study how identities are constructed and utilised in human interactions; and explore various ways in which social biases, power, and privilege operate in social work and in wider society. You will also study how diversity enriches and challenges social work goals and methods. Not least, you will be introduced to the practice and theory of “anti-oppressive” social work.
