Mae cymdeithas, demograffi, daearyddiaeth, deddfwriaeth genedlaethol, polisi cenedlaethol ac iaith oll yn chwarae rhan bwysig, ym mywydau defnyddwyr gwasanaethau a gofalwyr ac ymarfer gweithwyr cymdeithasol.

      Dechrau gyda seicoleg

      Y 'pos mwyaf a phwysicaf' rydym yn ei wynebu fel pobl yw ni ein hunain (Boring, 1950, tud. 56). Mae pobl yn bos - yn bos cymhleth, cynnil ac amlhaenog, a daw'n fwy cymhleth fyth wrth i ni esblygu dros amser a newid o fewn cyd-destunau gwahanol. Wrth ateb y cwestiwn 'Beth sy'n ein gwneud ni yn pwy ydym ni?', mae seicolegwyr yn cyflwyno amrywiaeth o esboniadau pam bod pobl yn teimlo, yn meddwl ac yn ymddwyn fel ag y maent. Pan fydd yn ymddangos bod seicolegwyr yn deall un rhan o 'pwy ydym ni', daw tystiolaeth newydd i ddangos ochr wahanol i'r amlwg! Nid yw'n hawdd nodi'r holl ddylanwadau.

      The long road to Welsh devolution

      Graham Day, formerly Reader in Sociology at Bangor University and author of Making Sense of Wales (2002) reviews the various stages of constitutional change through which powers have been devolved to Wales from the UK government since the 1990s. He notes how the gradual extension of the powers of the Welsh Government, necessary to provide a workable and settled solution, has been accomplished through a remarkable democratic transition. As emphasis moves now from constitutional reform to the tangible benefits of devolved governance in Wales, he also provides an assessment of some of the achievements of the Welsh Government.

      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.

      Starting with psychology

      The most ‘important and greatest puzzle’ we face as humans is ourselves (Boring, 1950, p. 56). Humans are a puzzle – one that is complex, subtle and multi-layered, and it gets even more complicated as we evolve over time and change in different contexts. When answering the question ‘What makes us who we are?’, psychologists put forward a range of explanations about why people feel, think and behave the way they do. Just when psychologists seem to understand one bit of ‘who we are’, up pops some new evidence to show a different side! It is not easy to pin down all the many influences.
