Contemporary Debates in Social Work Practice is an online unit provided by Open Universities Australia and Griffith University for students studying the Master of Social Work.
It builds on foundational social work units, linking theory and practice, and seeks to explore contemporary directions and debates in social work, as well as those arising from social and political institutions. The unit also begins the process of encouraging students to critically reflect upon their identity as social work professionals and articulate their stance on key professional issues.
Understanding the nature of changes to the social work profession is extremely important for its survival as a discipline and practice; students are encouraged to consider social work on a local, national and international level, as well as the micro and macro structures impacting on the profession.
