Course description

About the Using Theories in Social Care Diploma

Social work and community care are both practical professions. Most roles will involve heading out and working together with service users and trying to implement positive change in these people’s lives. However, in order to succeed with the practical challenges, social workers must have an understanding of social care theories.

This distance learning course has been designed especially to educate students about the theories used in social care. The 12 engaging online modules cover a number of topics, ranging from anti-discriminatory theories in social work practice to cognitive, behavioural and psychodynamic approaches.
