Toward Integrating Catholic Social Teaching into Graduate Social Work Education
Donaldson, Linda Plitt
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v27 n1 p33-49 Win 2008
Social work programs are one mechanism within Catholic institutions of higher education for advancing the social mission of the Church. The social work profession seeks the achievement of a just society that promotes the dignity of the human person in the context of community and social relationships. This article describes beginning efforts to integrate Catholic Social Teaching (CST) into an integrative seminar on social justice and social change in a graduate social work program. It also identifies existing models and organizations that universities can look to for support if they endeavor to bring CST into their course content in a meaningful way.
