Course description

The Social Educator's role in healthcare is to plan and implement a set of educational activities promoting the global development and positive social integration of individuals of all ages, who experience distress arising from: psycho-physical disability, relational disorders, environmental disadvantage, deviance, families in distress and marginalisation. The Educator's role is to promote the psychological, relational and environmental conditions favourable to the growth potential and independence of individuals in need.
