theorising tacit knowing and practice wisdom
participatory approaches to social work research
This symposium will bring together social work practitioners, service users and academics to explore the opportunities and the challenges around different kinds of collaborative research that address the issues facing the social work profession, both at a local level and at a global level.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, social workers worldwide have been responding to the virus with creativity and ethical commitment. We have seen innovative practice in social work being developed in the context of unprecedented public health threats, prolonged restrictions on people’s mobility as well as limited access to resources and services. Social workers’ experiences in COVID-19 have again demonstrated their continuous contribution to, not only improve the lives of individuals, families and communities, but also build new practice and theoretical knowledge that address human needs and tackle social inequalities.
Dr Sui-Ting Kong, (Sociology, Durham University)
Dr Jane Shears, (Head of Professional Development and Education, the British Association of Social Workers)
Anyone who is interested in social work and social work practice-research collaboration.
