This course builds upon and completes the profiling course “values and relationships in professional
practice”, which is of fundamental importance in a majority of VID’s programs. It
highlights the basic thinking and academic conditions related to the study of professional and diaconal
practices. It emphasizes and relates values and practice to public/faith-based/third-sector health and social
services. Values, ethical references, spirituality and fundamental purpose are emphasized. Further, the
course frames such professional practices and values through the development of differing welfare models
and increasing pluralism. Overall, the course address how professional practice is intertwined with
individual and institutional values and how this varies in differing vocational contexts. Thus, central theories
of practice, professionalism and an inter-disciplinary approach are emphasized.
