Introduction to social work in Wales
    • Respecting the individuality of each person is a central value of social work but, as the term suggests, social work is not only about individual perspectives: it also takes place in a social context. Society, demography, geography, national legislation, national policy, and language all play an important part, both in the lives of service users and carers and in the practice of social work practitioners. This course will introduce you to the importance of recognising that social work practice happens in context. In particular, you will learn about what this means for social work in Wales – in the Welsh context.
