Advanced Social Work Practice (1) (SIR035)

The aim of this module is to encourage considered reflection on social work practice that is informed by a thorough grounding in cutting-edge debates about what constitutes good practice. The module will cover contemporary debates about the politics of social work, anti-discriminatory practice, evidence-based practice, reflective practice, social work theory and social work ethics and values. There will be presentations from researchers in the school who have conducted in-depth studies of practice in diverse social work settings. Course members will also be expected to present case studies of social work practice. It is recognised that many DSW candidates will be managers or teachers of social work practice rather than practitioners themselves, and the assessment task will reflect this.
