|Description:||The Social Service Worker program provides knowledge and the skill development required to effectively assume the role of a helping person in the human service field. Students will be challenged to examine their own beliefs, develop interpersonal communication skills, and to promote social justice, human dignity, and equality. Successful completion of the program is based upon the student’s ability to engage in growth and on academic performance.
This program emphasizes skill and knowledge development in the following areas: interviewing, counselling and relationship building abilities, effective membership and leadership in groups, working with families, the creation and maintenance of helping relationships, and practice in areas like case management, community development and social policy. Reflected throughout the curriculum is the importance of training social service workers who are committed to social justice and anti-oppression principles.
