Human Services in the 21st Century: Care, Gender and Institutions - SOCX322

This unit provides an opportunity to examine the personal, sociological and policy issues associated with a range of different human service areas, including community care, child care, child protection, disability services, aged care and mental health. A starting point for these discussions is an examination of the ideas of care. Drawing on these ideals, the unit will guide you through the exciting world of research and theory on the operation of human services, and will give you firsthand experience reviewing research, evaluation, policy materials and other information on services.
