SW-670: Contemporary Social Justice in Social Work Practice

2 credit hours

In this course, students analyze and evaluate current frameworks of social justice for their applicability in Social Work Practice. Students will use the questions asked in the SW 602 course (Will social workers play an integral role in the process of promoting and facilitating social justice? Or will social workers impede those involved in social justice activities by ignoring, depreciating, or blocking the efforts of marginalized persons seeking their own empowerment or their fair share of societal resources? How can social justice be incorporated at all practice levels?), to guide them to create their own definitions and social justice frameworks for social work practice at the micro, mezzo and macro levels.
