Social Work Code of Ethics requires social workers to practice from a social justice focus. The anti-oppressive framework takes the concept of social justice further by challenging dominate ideology by seeking to empower those oppressed. An understanding of the anti-oppressive framework  and how to incorporate it in practice can be an effective tool in reshaping client service delivery.

  1. Participants will understand the Anti-Oppressive framework and its importance
  2. Participants will learn how to utilize anti-oppressive practice with client systems and within the work setting
