Critical Practice Approaches

Critical Practice Approaches

The main aim of the course is to develop your understanding of what skills are involved in practising critically. To achieve this, we will explore three aspects: values and their impact on professional practice, ambiguities and uncertainties in practice, and a critique of dominant assumptions upon which societies and welfare practises have been constructed.

The course will take a critically reflective approach to further develop and consolidate your knowledge and skills. Using a scaffolded case study approach, we explore a number of issues relating to the rights of the child, welfare policy, mental health, youth justice, family violence and aged care. Through analysing, evaluating and applying the case scenarios to these issues, you will develop expertise to practice as a critical practitioner.
