Social Work and Social Care seminar: 'Understanding Expertise in Social Work'

Front-line expertise is deeply embedded in day-to-day practice and it can change and develop as it is used. Expertise also reflects moments of ingenuity, creativity and improvisation.
Recognising this opens up questions of how we can best study these dynamic aspects of professional expertise.

In this seminar, Professor Tony Evans takes up this challenge and outlines an approach to researching front-line practice that draws on techniques and insights from drama practice.


Professor Evans will draw on his current involvement in a research project working with social work and drama practitioners, seeking to develop a form of drama as a research practice, to capture and represent aspects of front-line practice which can often be missed or misunderstood when simply spoken about to or observed by external researchers.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
