SCWK6048 Social Work for Environmental Change Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Dr Susan Heward-Belle Session: Semester 1 Classes: 1x1hr lecture and 1x3hr tutorial per week for 5 weeks. 1x4hr conference in the final week Assessment: presentation (40%), report (40%) essay (20%) Campus: Camperdown/Darlington, Sydney Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
Global warming is recognised as an outstanding threat for human societies (World Bank, 2012). The links between the environment, human rights and social justice are widely recognised.The social work profession, with its' social ecological focus, and commitment to promoting human rights and social justice is well placed to contribute to efforts to prevent and respond to the environmental crisis. The International Federation of Social Work's 'Policy Statement on Globalisation and the Environment' and the AASW's Code of Ethics promote the social work profession as a key player in efforts to address climate change. However, few Schools of Social Work offer any formal training in this area. This unit recognises the importance of preparing social workers to: have an understanding of the impact of climate change; to develop skills to prevent further environmental degradation;and to respond to individuals affected by climate change.
