Content

Students will develop an awareness of how ‘care’ and ‘risk’ are conceptualised within theoretical, legal, social, policy and organisational contexts and their political and ethical consequences for practice. Students will appreciate that the idea of ‘the risk society’ reconceptualises more traditional ideas of ‘control’ in professional practice, and their consequences for ‘care’, ‘protection’ and social justice and recognise that ‘care’ and ‘risk’ are integrally related, and co-exist in all professional practice contexts.
