Social Work Practice with Children, Young People and Families (MSWPG7107)

This course enables students to develop an understanding of relevant practice frameworks which inform social work with children and families. Within this course, students will learn to identify, consider and critically reflect on microlevel personal and interpersonal dynamics and macro-level systems factors impacting family wellbeing. Students will develop their capacities to plan interventions aimed at achieving the most effective outcomes for families' health, wellbeing and life chance. Case studies reflecting the complex contemporary challenges confronting children and families will provide the foundation for students to develop and implement social work responses which consider the person in the environment; recognise the lasting impact of oppression and marginalisation on individuals, families and communities; and, uphold the rights, dignity and autonomy of individuals and families.
