Learning objectives

General learning outcomes
Knowledge and understanding
Knowledge and understanding of the principles concerning the listening attitude
Knowledge and understanding of the empathic relationship management
Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
Ability to develop a collaborative and constructive relationship both with the user and the other professional roles involved in the helping processes. Specific learning outcomes
The teaching aims to transfer basic knowledge relating to the care process in the social pedagogy with the purpose of understanding the needs of the beneficiaries of the services. Particular attention will be given to the bearers of the new frailties of the current social context. The knowledge is linked to the skills of non-judgmental listening, to narrative competence as transformation of situations of empasse, to the holistic and geopolitical vision of situations of fragility and to the identification of areas of empowerment related to both the individual and his family group and / or the group to which they belong (linguistic, religious, cultural). Secondly, the teaching offers basic knowledge of the main narrative tools aimed at identifying, understanding, evaluating and accompanying the beneficiaries of the services in a participatory form, seeking ways of working in a small group according to the practices of popular pedagogies. To identify potential and resources in those who access the social service, in their life environment, in their history in order to activate ways of project creation with users, with other services and supporting networks in the territory.

Prerequisites and basic notions

Knowledge acquired on the areas of helping relationships.


The teaching aims to investigate which cultures of care today's social service work requires by following some specific themes:
(a) Social services, for many years, have been confronted with the differences that constitute the multicultural structure of societies. We will explore the care and mediation devices that take these differences into account in the work with families, mothers and children. How, without flattening the differences, is it possible to deal with the complex issue of child protection?
b) The topic of violence against women will be addressed by delving into the cultures of motherhood with testimonies and the comparison with a socio-educational intervention model in combating violence against women.
c) The theoretical assumption that runs through the teaching is that taking care of the other implies, on an existential level, also taking care of oneself. Care work, 'caring' (the expression of what is dear to us) is an act that touches the emotional, personal and professional spheres; what posture can social workers embody in their work?
Knowledge and tools aimed at having care, receiving care, and creating 'micro-community' situations in which 'doing care' is realised through paths of co-responsibility and sharing the 'strength' of care will be experimented. Experts with experience on the topic of caring arrangements with migrant families and violence against women will be present. With regard to the last point, working tools on caring in social work will be tested.

Didactic methods

The teaching is intended to be an educational and research course and is therefore conducted in an active, reflective and compositional form.
The possibility of confrontation with experienced experts in the field of care with immigrant families and child protection, and services against violence against women will be further opportunities to deepen theories and practices.
A narrative self-care tool will be experimented with during the teaching.

Learning assessment procedures

The examination will be oral, discussing the theoretical parts of the study texts and lectures.
Optional: an extra 2 points will be added to the oral assessment if a written paper is submitted by a maximum of 3 students/students, relating to an innovative project on the theme of care (theme to be defined with the lecturer during the course of the course). The written paper must be a maximum of 5 pages (font: Times New Roman 12, line spacing 1.5) and will be assessed before the oral examination and then discussed there.
Erasmus students must meet with the lecturer BEFORE the start of the teaching.
To discuss attendance and exam preparation. Write to:

Assistente Sociale

Comune e Università di Verona collaborano per la formazione alla professione di assistente sociale. 

Professione  Assistente Sociale 

Pagina aggiornata il 18/1/2022

Stage e Tirocini

Le attività̀ di tirocinio degli studenti si svolgono presso strutture esterne, convenzionate con l’Università degli Studi di Verona ai sensi delle vigenti disposizioni in materia. 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. Le attività di tirocinio sono obbligatorie per almeno 450 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.
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. A tal fine utilizzano un apposito libretto di frequenza per ciascuno studente.
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 = 1; buono = 2; ottimo = 3; eccellente = 4 e verrà aggiunta alla media dei voti del curriculum al momento della discussione della tesi.
Gli Uffici della Direzione Didattica e Servizi agli Studenti predispongono la documentazione necessaria allo svolgimento delle attività̀ di tirocinio, comprese attestazioni e certificazioni.
Nel caso in cui lo studente partecipi a programmi di mobilità internazionale, le attività̀ di tirocinio vengono regolamentate come segue:

A – Lo studente svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede estera.
Se lo studente svolge il Tirocinio all’estero si ritengono assolti gli obbligo relativi 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 sarà̀ 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 estera.
Se lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio nella sede estera 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 il laboratorio di guida al tirocinio;
produce la relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto”.
