Lecture contents

The students engage with the fundamentals of conversation guidance, bearing in mind the different settings (mandated settings, first conversation, challenging forms of communication). They receive an overview of the different forms of communication in Social Work (i.e. counselling, negotiating, informing, mediation). Techniques and activities within counselling, such as listening actively, sending I-messages, perceptions, asking helpful questions und dealing with silence are practiced. The fundamentals of the setting and relationship-building are conveyed, and an engagement with (im)partiality takes place.
Ideal scenarios and structural patterns of counselling conversations in settings with individual clients, families or systems are central to this module. These are used as a starting point for a professionally sound reflection about conversations, which are simulated in role play. Different consultative approaches (i.e. systemic, solution-focused, person-centred, psychoanalytical) are presented and practiced using role playing.

Lecture contents

In this module, the students acquire an understanding of the conditions and objectives of ‘reflection' and collectively generate group rules for the formation of the module. Self-perception and external perception are addressed, and team and cooperation skills strengthened.
Furthermore, students acquire fundamental knowledge about selected social organisations i.e. relating to their history, goals, tasks, legal conditions, financial foundations, professional repertoire of methods, organisational structure and documentation. Current questions by selected institutions, as well as concrete practice experience are reflected, and related to theory and practice where appropriate. This is also done in preparation for a 4-week long work placement, which full time students complete at the beginning of the 2nd semester and relates to the practice orientation days for part time students in the 1st/2nd semester. Questions about reconciling studies, work placement and professional motivation are discussed. The different roles of work placement managers and interns are discussed and explained.

1ECTS

Lecture contents

In this module, the reports from concrete placement experiences are continuously referenced to theory and practice. Alongside the engagement with personal values and conflict of values, a reflection about different roles, on the one hand in relation to the relationship of placement managers and interns, and, on the other hand between interns and clients, is carried out.
The analysis and reflection for the team and group work is practiced. On that note, the module crucially serves the (further) development of social, personal and professional competences.

Lecture contents

This module relates to the module ‘Democracy and Participation' and presents the findings from analysing democratic structures and participatory processes with self-organised structures and actions within Social Work and self-reliant (potential) clients of Social Work. Locating Social Work in relation to self-organised groups is explained, and the possibilities of working together is increased.
For this purpose, the aspects of representation through Social Work, self-representation of affected (groups) people, emancipation and empowerment, as well as user participation and codetermination in accommodation facilities, are discussed.
Considering Social Work as a part of political structures in Austria, it is negotiated how Social Work takes, shapes and enforces its political role.
For this purpose, the engagement with interests and intervention strategies of different political actors, as well as the understanding of political structures and processes is promoted. Furthermore, concrete methodological options to promote self-organisation are discussed.

Reflection and in-depth engagement with their professional identity development as professionals in the field of Social Work, is at the centre of this seminar, specifically considering their approaching graduation. The subjective, respective group seminar experiences of the participants are connected to the field-related work placement.
Information about the Social Work labour market situation and working conditions, about placement and application procedures within the scope of the practice fields, allow for a realistic assessment on current developments in the professional context of Social Work and aid the decision making process on entering the profession. Through individual research, exchange with professionals and visiting events, the relevant aspects of Social Work practice are put in focus and development perspectives – on an individual and professional level –, are designed or deepened. Likewise, professionally relevant advocacy groups are presented and their contribution to professionalization processes conveyed.
