In this podcast, we continue the social work journey through the lifecourse and discuss social work with children. We consider how ideas of childhood and children’s rights have developed. We look at how social workers can respond well to children’s experiences and context.
In this podcast we discuss the causes and impacts of poverty. We consider social work’s role in overcoming poverty, through direct work and social action. And we look at how we can rethink the way we talk about poverty and wealth.
In this podcast, we continue the social work journey through the lifespan. We consider how social workers can enable infants to thrive. We discuss child development, work with families, and how we support communities to challenge inequality.
In this podcast we start our exploration of some of the big issues using a social work lens. We consider what identity means and how we respond to it in social work, including our own identity as social workers.
Welcome to the first podcast for Series 4. In our ‘a’ podcasts this series we are looking at social work through the life-course, starting here with pre-birth. We acknowledge the difficulties of talking about this area of work, and look to how we can practise ethically and thoughtfully.
Series 4 runs from 2019-2020. We will look at social work through the life-course, and take a social work view of big issues such as homelessness, climate change and identity.
