|SW-535-01||Child Welfare Practice and Ser (3 )||
|Dougherty, Lea M|
This elective course provides an historical and theoretical framework for understanding the ecological context of child welfare practice. The societal values which shape current policy and legislation are discussed. The concepts of strength and resilience are considered as underlying philosophies of effective, family focused interventions. Evaluative research in child welfare informs a discussion of differential intervention for culturally competent child welfare practice. Competence in child welfare practice derives from an understanding of both culture and the impact of oppression and an understanding of societal contexts.
