Languages of publication
The article focuses on the problem of sociocultural competence of social workers in the process of studying the academic subject “Public relations in the social sphere”. The system of theoretical (analysis and synthesis of scientific and educational-methodological literature) and empirical (observation, conversation, analysis of students learning outcome) methods have been used to resolve the assigned tasks. The analysis of the psychological and educational literature outlined that there is no universally accepted definition of the “sociocultural competence” notion. Based on the scientific analysis of the “competence”, “social” and “culture” notions a sociocultural competence of social workers was defined as an integrative personal characteristic that includes a system of appropriate value orientations; personal qualities, knowledge and skills; an ability to apply them universally in professional practice and to adapt to erratic social and cultural conditions; emotional and volitional regulation and reflection of the process and professional practice outcome. The notion also foresees cultural regulation of the cooperation between a social worker and different social institutions (family, social services, cultural and educational institutions, public organizations, informal groups, etc.). It was defined that the development of sociocultural competence of social workers should be reasonably implemented as part of the basic professional studies, namely on subject content which is the basis of future profession. In this case sociocultural competence as a psychological neoformation will become a central personality neoformation. In this context the particular interest appeals to the academic subject “Public relations in the social sphere” in the context of which organizational and purpose-oriented conditions for the development of sociocultural competence of social workers already exist. It was proved that in order to ensure the integrity and effectiveness of the development of sociocultural competence of social workers in the process of studying the academic subject “Public relations in the social sphere” the technology of the formation of sociocultural competence should be used. Studying ways of the development of sociocultural competences of social workers during their various types of professional-oriented practices determines the prospects for further researches.
