Students should provide a critical appraisal of the interplay of theory and practice in the context of social justice and anti-oppression.
The essay should:
• Critically discuss the relationship of theory and practice
• Critically analyze and reflect on how our understanding of a set of theories or a theory of your choice can inform social work practice
• Critically evaluate the extent to which our theoretical understanding of the social world informs anti-oppressive practice or promotes social justice.
