CDS2000 Ethical Issues and Human Rights in the Human Services

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : School of Psychology, Counselling and Community

Requisites

Pre-requisite or Co-requisite: CMS1000

Other requisites

Students will require access to e-mail and have internet access to UConnect for this course.
Reliable access to the internet is a requirement of this course as the course contains electronic assessment and submission elements. In order to avoid internet issues, on-campus students should upload their assignments into EASE using the on-campus computer laboratories. External students who knowingly do not have reliable access to the internet should actively seek alternative internet access (e.g., Internet cafes, local libraries, or work places) for assessment submission. External students are able to use the on-campus student computer laboratories once access has been enabled. To be granted access, external students need to contact ICT and ask to have a student account enabled so that they can work on-campus. This needs to be requested at least one week before access is required.

Students who have previously completed HMT2000 cannot enrol in this course.

Synopsis

CDS2000 introduces students to the main legal, ethical, and social justice responsibilities that are integral to work in government and non-government human service organisations located in the Social and Community Services Industry. While considering a range of approaches to ethical theory and moral philosophy, students will focus on rights-based, anti-oppressive approaches to the design, development and delivery of human services.
