4b Anti-racism

In this podcast we consider the issue of racism from a social work point of view. We discuss the impact of racism, and how social workers can oppose it in practice. Social work ethics require us to respect the inherent worth and dignity of all people. We need to work collectively to challenge and overcome all forms of racism.

2b Poverty

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.

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.
