Case management is the dominant service delivery approach used by criminal justice and human services agencies to provide services to individuals and families. This unit provides an introduction to case management methodologies and practices. It will explore the history, principles and dimensions of case management and its application within various criminal justice and related settings. The course will have a strong practice focus with specialist input from practitioners and field trips to agencies. A recurring theme will be the ethical and justice issues that arise for organisations and staff in the application of case management. Students will be encouraged to critically reflect upon the perspectives and experiences of people engaged in case management. In doing so they will analyse the relation of theory to values, attitudes, beliefs and practice.
