SWP 901 Youth and Social Justice

The terms ‘youth’ and ‘crime’ are often used interchangeably. Young people are typically portrayed as threats, deviant, deficient, or dangerous. In recent years, such concerns have crystallized in a myriad of interventions, reform programs and policies designed to effect their compliance, discipline, guidance, protection, control and punishment and prevent ‘anti-social’ and ‘undesirable behaviour. This course examines anti-oppression approaches to work with youth affected by these perspectives and interventions. Lect: 3 hrs. Prerequisites: (SWP 302, SWP 331, SWP 335, SWP 341, SWP 402 and SWP 435) or Direct Entry Course Weight: 1.00 Billing Units: 1
