About the Course:

Social work socialization is a lifelong process that shapes social values and ethics for students, professors, and professional social workers. It is both a subjective spiritual journey of identification with heroes and a more objective journey to satisfactorily understand society and its structures. Jane Addams’ life and metatheoretical vision of democracy and social ethics offer social work a much needed direction for the 21st century.
