Course: Northern and Rural Social Work Practice
Description: This course builds on the structural, Anishinaabe and feminist approaches, including their application to northern, rural/ remote communities, examined in SWRK 3206: Critical Social Work Practice with attention to Anishinaabe, Structural and Feminist Perspectives. Critical generalist practice will be examined within the context of current and emerging client populations and practice issues in rural and Northern regions of Canada. The course aims to develop a critical awareness/analysis of the context and response of social workers to the social problems with which they are meant to deal in their practice in Northern, remote and rural communities. Students will be introduced to the core concepts of rurality and rural Social Work in Canada. Prerequisite: SWRK 3206. This course is restricted to students in the professional years of the BSW program.

Qualifications: A Master’s degree in Social Work or a related discipline, and at least three years of social work practice experience. Candidates should be familiar with critical perspectives related to social work practice in the north. Previous teaching experience in post-secondary instruction (preferably at the university level) is considered a strong asset.

In addition, the successful applicant must have a strong knowledge-base of varied practice frameworks and models that inform northern, rural social work practice. An understanding of the concept of hinterland-heartland dynamics, various traumatic injury, resiliency, and the implications of practice in small, remote and rural northern communities are paramount. Equally important, is the examination of professional and personal values in working with populations in the northern communities.
