Tēnā koutou katoa. Haere mai mo te kaupapa o te Special Topic. This course will enable you to carry out an in-depth investigation of a contemporary topic relevant to your future social work practice aspirations, and to make practice recommendations based on the evidence. It is your opportunity to investigate a research question that is important to you. I'm looking forward to sharing the journey with you. Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou.
