Programme

The course aims to provide students with the theoretical framework and the conceptual instrumentation necessary to be able to operate competently within the planning processes of territorial social services, in particular using a strategic perspective based on governance and participation. At the end of the course the student will be able to: analyze and describe in a competent way the ways in which social planning processes are carried out in the territories, identifying in them the characteristics of the different models; formulate proposals for the definition and implementation of the tools and processes that characterize social planning; evaluate the appropriateness and quality of the analyzed programming processes; propose suitable actions to support social planning processes in the process of being activated or in progress; formulate with appropriate terminologies and concepts proposals or evaluations concerning the theoretical and operational foundations of social programming.

The course is divided into two parts.

The first describes and discusses the concepts and tools that define the field of social programming. In particular, the following are discussed: the principles and models of social programming; the keywords of social planning (integration, governance and participation); the tool of social planning (the area plan); programming in a framework for outsourcing services; the forms and tools of outsourcing; the planning of personal services in an era of social and financial crisis and how to manage the scarcity of resources in planning processes.

The second part presents the concepts of social programming through the reference to some parts of the L.R. Lazio 11/2016 and the 2017-2019 Regional Social Plan
