Relational Cultural Theory and Feminist Theories

Course Number: 
40405
This course will explore the history, neuroscience, and application of Relational Cultural Theory (RCT) to social work practice in multiple settings. Drawing on its relationship to feminist theories, including Black feminist theory, and attachment theory, this course will address the significance of gender in the context of RCT and its implications for how we consider connection. Throughout the course, attention will also be focused on it's on-going transformation as a theory and model to practitioners who are BIack, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and its value to communities of color. We will study its functions and limitations as a framework that works in compliment with other models through engaging examples of its application, in a variety of clinical and non-clinical settings.
