HSV 206 Foundations & Theories of Human Systems

HSV 206: Foundations & Theories of Human Systems (3 credits) This course is a continuation of SOC 326. Students continue to explore the person-in the-environment (PIE), with emphasis on human service delivery at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Students in this class will explore the origin, foundation, and development of system theory as a major model used in human services. To conceptualize and integrate prevention, maintenance, intervention, rehabilitation, students are introduced to helpful tools used for assessing the ecological context. The course examines the use of system theory in providing a range of services to individuals, groups, family, organizations, community, and society. The political, ideological, and theological implications of servicing humans in the environment are explored.
