In order to deliver client-centred services, client history and culture needs to be recognized. Students analyze unique characteristics, issues and treatment options while considering appropriate best practices in treating selected populations. These may include youth, older adults, people with disabilities, people involved in street life or in the criminal justice system and Indigenous peoples. Students also consider gender related issues affecting women, men and clients who identify as LGBTQ+. Throughout the learning, students critically examine personal and societal biases challenging their ability to support and advocate for the rights of all clients.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
