SSW102 - Diversity: Awareness and Practice:
By relying on ananti-oppression framework,this course will invite students to explore the various forms of individual, cultural and systemic discrimination experienced by diverse groups of people in Canada. This course challenges students to use an integrative anti-oppression framework as well as an access and equity analysis to develop their own reflective practice.The foundation of this course is in social justice and the ?belief that understanding the systemic contexts of identities and culture and critically examining one's own social locations in the web of these power relations is of paramount significance for social [service] workers to engage meaningfully with people of different and multiple identifications (Wong, 2004). Through this framework, students will also begin to comprehend how systemic barriers shape people?s access to political, social, material, human rights and personal resources.
The [anti-oppressive] framework enables links to be made between individual action and social structures. It informs practice by enabling the worker to evaluate the differences that exist at an individual level and within society and how these impact on each other. It provides the means of making accurate assessments by taking into account the inequities that texture the lives of those denied access to society?s resources because of their defined social status and the exclusionary practices of the dominant system. It demands that we constantly engage in the process of critical self-examination, which in turn enable us to engage in the process of change (Dalrymple& Burke, 1995, p.18)
Social [service] workers need to incorporate a political dimension into their practice, not as an appendage? but as the heart of our work? (Reisch, 1997)
