Outreach and Low-Threshold Social Work SE

Lector: FH-Prof. Christoph Stoik, MA, Martin Tiefenthaler, BSc MA

2SWS
4ECTS

Lecture contents

The course deals with the lifeworld needs of marginalised people in public spaces, such as homeless people, beggars, drug users and sex workers, as well as the corresponding outreach and inpatient facilities. The basic principles of outreach work, such as partiality, are addressed as well as the tension between standardisation and support in institutional contexts. Professional action in the context of street work is taught in an application-oriented way and the special role of social work in this context is examined critically in terms of power. Furthermore, models of participation of addressees and self-advocacy are discussed. A professionally justified positioning in public discourses for addressees of outreach social work, especially with regard to the stay of marginalised people in public space as well as the establishment of low-threshold offers is dealt with as well as communication with different actors, such as clients from politics and administration and residents.

Development of socio-spatial Practice UE

Lector: FH-Prof. Christoph Stoik, MA

3SWS
5ECTS

Lecture contents

Based on concrete problems of the practice of socio-spatial Social Work related to a phenomenon of Social Work, a professional challenge in an organisation or a concrete project, the students independently develop a project or a (public-effective) intervention depending on the problem, which they also implement independently. Depending on the problem, the result of the course can be a developed project that is presented to the (professional) public or an intervention that is implemented (with publicity effect) and then evaluated. Existing empirical data or studies, explanatory knowledge, theoretical knowledge, e.g. on specialised concepts of Social Work, as well as knowledge on professional socio-spatial action are used by the students and provide the basis for project development or intervention.

Community and District Work SE

Lector: FH-Prof. Christoph Stoik, MA

2SWS

Lecture contents

The course teaches concepts and methods of community work as well as fields and programmes in which these concepts are applied: urban renewal; urban expansion; redensification; district, neighbourhood and settlement management within the framework of developer competitions in non-profit housing; conflict and community work in municipal housing or in public space (e.g. Fair Play Team in Vienna); citizen participation processes; health promotion programmes, as well as communication processes with residents around social institutions. Programmes of institutions and the interests of different actors (residents, users of public spaces, politics, administration, business people) are analytically examined and working in interdisciplinary contexts is considered. Methods of community work, such as social space analyses, activating questioning, working with groups, moderating citizens' assemblies and large groups, methods of citizens' participation and community organising are taught in an application-oriented manner as well as the woork in and with the public with different media, from district media to mass media to social media.

Social Work and Methods: Public Space and Community Work SE

Lector: FH-Prof. Christoph Stoik, MA

3SWS
2ECTS

Lecture contents

Historical and current approaches to working at the local community level, as well as developments of socio-cultural and social-space-oriented approaches are imparted to the students. On this basis, the students practice and learn about selected methods of social-space analysis, the investigation of outreach work, including information, activation and project work, the support of citizens, moderating and supporting large and small groups, as well as negotiating different conflictual situations.
On the basis of case study examples, taking methodological action with regards to target group specific and target group overlapping Social Work is reflected, in order to understand the connections between professional principles and the application of intervention techniques.
Emphasis on Public Space and Community Work/District Work:
The students receive an overview of the programme, project and organisation which Social Work offers in public spaces and/or operates in district work (i.e. neighbourhood projects, offers of urban regeneration, outreach measures of Social Work). Thereby, notions of order and measures in public spaces and districts (i.e. residential buildings, open spaces, railway stations, shopping streets) are critically elaborated on, while projects of participatory development and social participation within the district are discussed, in order to make Social Work intervention perspectives usable and develop them further.
Through concrete case study examples, the students are taught to analyse complex social problems within urban spaces, in order to determine the role, function and professional orientation, to develop possibilities of Social Work intervention and to justify methodological interventions in detail.
