Social Work is a helping profession that intertwines with all aspects of diversity. In this class, we will be exploring the many 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. In this class, we will touch on topics that may be sensitive to a peer. Mutual respect is an expectation.
