ST-Contemporary Issues in Human Services

This course will explore the socio-historical-cultural context of the treatment of individuals receiving human services in community settings. It will begin with a discussion of the nature and experience of various psychological and physical problems from the perspective of the person most affected, his/her significant others, and society as a whole. This discussion will inform our consideration of community treatment models. We will examine current trends and issues affecting the community-based service delivery system and think critically about the implications of the above for policy-making, workforce development and retention, and ? most importantly ? the lives of those receiving services.
