Teaching Note--Circle of Insight: A Paradigm and Pedagogy for Liberation Social Justice Social Work Education
Nicotera, Anthony
Journal of Social Work Education, v54 n2 p384-391 2018
The Circle of Insight is a dialectical, open, purposeful, and enlightening process that moves those engaged toward deeper, liberating insight. It is a pedagogical construct I created over the past 15 years that I have used in teaching and developing my social justice social work classes. It integrates a see, reflect, act cyclical process that is at once personal and social. In this article, I present the Circle of Insight as a teaching tool, a creative, transformative pedagogical process for explicitly advancing Competency 3, Advance Human Rights and Social, Economic, and Environmental Justice, of the Council on Social Work Education's "Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards" for baccalaureate and master's social work programs.
