Aims/Description: This module will build upon knowledge of social work methods and approaches gained through academic and practice learning in Year One. Students will critically evaluate the main theoretical models relating to issues and circumstances which may impact upon service users at the point at which they interact with their environment. The module will also consider anti-oppressive and critically reflective practice, in order to develop their skills in the area of evidence-informed practice and their ability to identify and reflect critically on areas for personal and professional development.
