Educational Philosophy: Social Work is a helping profession that intertwines with all aspects of diversity. In this class we will be exploring the diverse topics and groups in which Social Workers are involved. Because our environment is constantly changing so are the theories and perspectives from which we work. We will be touching on topics that are sensitive to many people. Mutual respect is an expectation.
