IES 103 - Philosophy of Helping


This course engages foundational concerns of the helping professions from individual, communal, and societal perspectives. Questions explored in this course include; How does a society provide help in ways that are empowering and authentic for those being helped? What are the tensions that inevitably arise when people try to formalize the helping relationship? In addition to exploring the skills that lead to caring, competent, and effective practice, students will develop a personal philosophy of helping that is critical and reflective. Some sections may be restricted to integrated educational studies majors and minors and disability studies minors only. Letter grade. (Offered every semester.) 3 credits
