CYCP-2038Current Issues in Child and Youth Care

In a complex world where social issues impact the lives of  young people, developing practitioners will explore causality and the systems that support and contribute to the ongoing issues youth face. This course examines social issues within an ecological framework, using a trauma informed, strength-based critical lens that honors diversity and the impact of colonization on risk and resiliency. The critical social issues to be considered include substance use, mental health, homelessness, suicide, sexual exploitation as well as issues specific to youth involved with child and family services and the youth justice system.
