SWB200 Working in Human Service Organisations

This unit engages you in critical examination of the professional role within the contemporary  organisational contexts. The unit will enhance your  capacity to integrate theory and practice by drawing on practice experiences from your field education placement as a stimulus for learning. The unit employs critically reflective approaches to learning and teaching about critical practice within contemporary workplaces characterised by neoliberal policies and managerialist practices. Students will develop an understanding of ethical practice in organisations, informed by critical social theories, using a critical incident from their practice experience as a platform to develop their practice framework. This unit takes account of recent theoretical developments in professional practice for the social work and human services discipline. The unit focuses on building your organisational competence and professional confidence, as well as your commitment to reflective practice.
