Social work for lazy radicals: seminar

Title: Social work for lazy radicals: relationship building, critical thinking and courage in practice

About this Event
Delivered by Dr Jane Fenton, University of Dundee

An event part of the Department of Social Work and Social Care seminar seriesDr Jane Fenton, University of Dundee, makes the case for a radical approach to social work that can be embraced by everyone. It's an approach based on real empathy and an understanding of oppression, of managerialism, of the moral heart of social work, of humanism and of the effects of neoliberal hegemony.

Jane Fenton provides a model of radical practice for students and social workers who are committed to ‘doing the right thing', and who want to develop their own framework for practice.

This seminar will appeal to students who are activists, but want to frame their individual-level practice in a meaningful way, and to those who are non-activist and non-political but simply want to be good social workers. It will give a political and moral understanding of social work practice and lead to confident, value-based and enjoyable social work.

 

Booking is essential to attend this event.
