【Course Objectives】

In Japan, "advocacy" in social work is often discussed in the context of the adult guardianship system. To fundamentally question what advocacy is, we need to refer to a global definition of the social work profession that has social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversity at its core. Then we will reconsider users' daily lives in terms of rights, and we will notice new problems. The purpose of this lecture is to deepen understanding of the essence of advocacy by discussing it with the students through concrete examples and sharing points of discussion.

【Course Contents】

Classes are planned to proceed according to the sub-themes presented in the class plan, but I would like to strive for flexible class management while providing opportunities for discussion based on the research theme of each student.
Since this is a graduate course, we plan to actively incorporate not only lectures by faculty members, but also presentations and topic proposals by students themselves, with a focus on two-way discussion.
