A 30 Masters credit level module - aims to further social workers’ skills for working with diversity, and enable them to develop more inclusive practices that promote social change, human rights, social cohesion and empowerment.

Respect for diversity and a commitment to anti-oppressive practice are core values in the social work profession, but practitioners continue to struggle with this area of their work - in part because of the wide range of issues and experiences faced by the children, young people and families they encounter.
