BVMT13-155: Policy, Case Management and Independent Living

Description

Students will be introduced to the concept of individual case management within broader administrative policies. Questions of responsibility, access to services, decision-making, support requirements, and the possibility of moving towards independent living will be explored with case examples drawn from the field. A major emphasis will be placed upon the legal and ethical issues involved in 'care', and how these need to be balanced with social and funding concerns of the broader community.
