Rights and vulnerable people

by The Open University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This thought-provoking learning pathway of podcasts, videos and readings introduces you to the law and social care, and how it impacts vulnerable people. You’ll also find out about the tensions between the laws designed to protect vulnerable or disadvantaged people and the human rights of an individual. Social workers, service users and lawyers all give their opinions.

Begin by listening to the personal testimonies of intellectually disabled women from Iceland and Canada who were sterilised without their consent. In the Western world, the shocking practice of involuntary sterilisation was deemed legal into the 1970s in parts of the USA, Canada, Europe and certain Nordic countries.

Find out about the risks of community care and how social workers help service users and survivors manage. Finally – challenge the stereotypes about people with mental health issues and learning disabilities.
