What you will learn

‘The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes’ (Marcel Proust)

This course brings together professionals from social work, health care and education, to discuss and explore the realm of transcultural care. In each work field we come across young people from a widely diverse background. It is important to acknowledge this cultural diversity, and to act appropriately from a professional perspective.  There is also a need in society for a more holistic approach to care: how do social workers, health care professionals and pedagogues provide a safe environment in which a young person can develop well? What can we learn from each other when we look at the individuals that we work with? What do we know about their daily lives, and what they are faced with when they are not with us?
