CYCP-2044Professional Practice Issues

Professional and ethical practice is not about what we say, but rather what we do. The primary purpose of this course is to enable students to expand their critical thinking about professional practice issues. As a co-requisite, Practicum II will provide students with the practical experiences for integration of learning. Through a combination of seminar groups, reflective readings, and discussions of case examples and experiences from the field, students will have the opportunity to explore the professional values and principles that guide Child and Youth Care practice. Guided by national child and youth care competencies and ethical theories, students will develop a deeper familiarity with the various conceptual resources all while considering the complex and diverse roles of CYC in youth care practice. As the standards of professionalism require that the child and youth care practitioner be well informed, stay abreast of current issues, and remain involved in ongoing professional development and growth, it is important that the student become familiar with this process prior to entering the field.
