Human Behaviour and Social Environment

Human Behaviour and Social Environment - SSW306
This course is designed to provide knowledge and understanding of theory and practice issues related to human behavior as a bio-psycho-social-spiritual phenomenon. From an anti-oppressive perspective, the promotion of social and economic justice are examined in relation to the interaction of societal, biological, political, economic, historical, cultural and psychosocial variables. The impacts of racial, gender, orientation, age, and socio-cultural influences across individual, family, and community lifespans are developed. Through the lens of anti-oppressive perspectives, particular practice implications and skills with Indigenous populations, older adults, LGBTTQ-I community and individuals with who are neuro-diverse or have disabilities are emphasized.
