Sandro Stanzani



The teaching is organized as follows:

Learning outcomes

• advanced theoretical and technical-methodological knowledge, with particular regard to the analysis and under-standing of the social, welfare and health institutions
• multidisciplinary knowledge aimed at critical analysis of specific social problems
• multidisciplinary knowledge aimed at reflecting on the dynamics in which the service is located

ability to interpret the different situations of hardship and to promote the well-being of the community;
reading and decision-making skills inherent to the problems of integration between social and health services;
mastery in the use of data collection and information tools.

The course aims to provide the conceptual elements necessary to develop an adequate sociological interpretation of emerging social dynamics (such as migratory processes and the emergence of Third sector organizations as actors in the integrated social work system). Students will develop skills of decision making concerning the issues of social inte-gration between different social groups and between social and health services, public and Third sector. The module “Sociology of the Third sector” will offer insights into the role that the Third sector can play in the context of the wel-fare state crisis. The “Multiculturalism and recognition theories” module aims to transmit the knowledge for a critical analysis of migration and of the claim of cultural identities to highlight elements of similarity and differences with re-spect to the struggles for recognition. The “Social network analysis and intervention” module presents concepts and tools for the analysis of social networks in their structural and symbolic dimensions. The conceptual elements intro-duced by the course will allow to realize innovative social intervention projects based on the network intervention, the design of Third sector services.


In order to achieve the learning outcomes, the unit syllabus will be structured as follows: 1. What is a social network and how it can be identified. 2. The properties of the relationships. 3. The properties of the nodes. 4. The properties of the networks. 5. Different ways of observing networks. 6. Some examples of researches conducted through the social network analysis. 7. The methodology of the network intervention. The program will be analytically presented during the frontal lectures and laboratory activities. All the topics in the syllabus can be found in the reference books.
Program: The module is divided into two types of teaching: lectures and in-depth laboratories. In the context of the lectures (8 hours), the fundamental concepts, and related empirical repercussions, will be presented to introduce the new paradigm of the egalitarian difference. In particular, the following themes will be introduced: 1. the role of culture in the formation of individual and group identities: culture as a 'social fact' (holistic perspective) and culture as a social construction (the individualistic perspective); 2. struggles for recognition: redistribution and recognition. Two ways to tackle the problem of social inequality; 3. multiculturalism and multi-ethnicity: the regulation of inter-ethnic and multicultural coexistence; 4. Rights and human self-determination in a global world: citizenship as a social practice. Within the laboratory activities (16 hours) each student, starting from the concepts introduced in the lectures, will have to develop a work aimed at developing the ability to translate the concept, in its complexity, into social indicators. In empirically detectable dimensions. Before the workshop activities, the teacher will make available the work material. In view of the teaching type, frequency module is mandatory.
The module will address the following topics: • Review of the main theories of Third sector • The relational specificity of Third sector • Third sector and innovation in social policies • Third sector in Italy: laws, culture and practices Teaching methods: • Lectures on theoretical contents • Presentation of significant experience of Third sector organizations • Group work for the analysis of laws concerning the sector and public social services outsourcing

Stage e Tirocini

Il Corso di Studi prevede un tirocinio obbligatorio, secondo le disposizioni e indicazioni che seguono.
1. Le attività di tirocinio degli studenti si svolgono presso strutture esterne, convenzionate con l’Università degli Studi di Verona ai sensi delle vigenti disposizioni in materia.
2. Nelle strutture esterne gli studenti svolgono le attività di tirocinio sotto la responsabilità di un assistente sociale (Tutor-supervisore), appartenente a dette strutture, coordinato a sua volta dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio. In assenza di un assistente sociale, operante nella struttura esterna, il Collegio didattico, per quanto di competenza, decide, su proposta dei responsabili del tirocinio, in ordine alle condizioni per l’effettuazione o la prosecuzione delle attività di tirocinio degli studenti interessati.
3. Le attività di tirocinio sono obbligatorie per almeno 250 ore. Il Collegio didattico, in deroga alle disposizioni del presente articolo, può consentire a studenti che si trovino in particolari condizioni, in specie se disabili, lavoratori o impegnati in organismi collegiali dell’Università degli Studi di Verona, di non ottemperare in parte all’obbligo di frequenza alle attività di tirocinio, predisponendo forme alternative di tirocinio, anche tramite supporti telematici e multimediali interattivi.
4. I responsabili delle attività di tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio, anche avvalendosi di appositi collaboratori o tutori esterni, accertano la presenza degli studenti presso le rispettive strutture.
5. Al termine dell’attività di tirocinio, lo studente deve presentare una relazione scritta al responsabile di tale attività presso il Corso di Studio. Lo studente elabora la relazione scritta, controfirmata dal Tutor-supervisore. La relazione finale viene valutata dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio e deve tenere conto degli obiettivi prefissati dal Collegio didattico.
La valutazione viene attribuita al tirocinio nel seguente modo: sufficiente = 0; buono = 1; ottimo = 2; eccellente = 3 e verrà aggiunta alla media dei voti del curriculum al momento della discussione della tesi.
6. Gli Uffici della Direzione Didattica e Servizi agli Studenti predispongono la documentazione necessaria allo svolgimento delle attività di tirocinio, comprese attestazioni e certificazioni.
7. Nel caso in cui lo studente partecipi al programma Erasmus le attività di tirocinio vengono regolamentate come segue:
A – Lo studente svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede Erasmus.
Se lo studente svolge il Tirocinio all’estero si ritiene “assolto” l’obbligo di frequenza al Laboratorio se:
- lo studente aggiorna il proprio docente/tutor con brevi relazioni mensili da inviare mezzo mail, sull’andamento del lavoro svolto presso la sede estera;
- produce una relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
La valutazione finale del laboratorio di guida al tirocinio sarà effettuata da parte del tutor del laboratorio sulla base della relazione dello studente tenendo conto della eventuale valutazione da parte del supervisore estero.
B – Lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede Erasmus
Se lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio nella sede Erasmus e lo deve fare al rientro:
- lo studente effettua uno/due incontri individuali iniziali con il docente/tutor in cui predisporre quanto necessita per l’avvio del tirocinio e nei quali verranno forniti materiali, griglie ed eventuali testi di riferimento;
- invia brevi relazioni mensili sull’andamento del tirocinio che sarà svolto in Italia al di fuori del periodo in cui si tiene normalmente il laboratorio di guida al tirocinio;
- produce la relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
Il Corso di Studi prevede un laboratorio interdisciplinare come attività formativa trasversale (3 Cfu di tipo F), presente nell’elenco degli insegnamenti Il laboratorio, per regolamento, prevede la frequenza obbligatoria per almeno i due terzi del totale delle ore.
