SWK 4609H – Sexuality, Sexual Diversity of Social Work Practice - Elective

This course explores contemporary issues in sexuality, sexual diversity and social work practice. It is based within a post-structural framework that not only challenges heteronormativity, but also recognizes the intersection of various forms of oppression including sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, ableism and ageism. This course will critically examine the social and political contexts in which sexuality is constructed, regulated and institutionalized. A practical and analytical approach to social work practice will be discussed.
