Study abroad for two weeks in summer 2018:
DIVERSITY AND INEQUALITY IN GLOBAL PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE IN THAILAND & LAOS
Course: SWK 280 (elective credit for non-majors, requirement for social work majors). It also fulfills Augsburg Experience!
This program explores diversity and social inequality as a prerequisite to professional social work practice in a global context – specifically, in the context of Southeast Asia and Hmong culture. A critical dimension of professional practice is competence in work with diverse populations. The course introduces students to key theories and constructs undergirding cultural competence, including social construction theory, social contact theory, aversive racism, implicit bias, and micro-aggressions. Additionally, course introduces key social work practice models and frameworks as they pertain to cultural competence, including systems theory, ecological framework, strengths perspective and person-in- environment.
Applications are due on January 15, and SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE!
