SWK526 Leadership in Social Policy

In this unit students will develop an advanced critique of current social policy debates and examine the impacts of policy on human service organizations and social work roles. The aim is to enable students to build on their analytical, critical, and problem-solving skills in the fields of social policy and human service leadership. Students will examine the ways in which social policies impact organizations, communities, groups and individuals in their day to day life. They will also explore how social policy and organizational structures affect social work services and roles. Organizational models and leadership approaches are critically examined. It is incumbent on social workers to not only understand how social policy influences and determines the human service role, but how we (as individuals and as professionals) can become leaders empowered to influence and shape national and territory/state social policy within a global context.
