Promoting Human Relationships in Children and Families Social Work: Learning together about the successes, challenges and barriers

This event will mark the first year of SASW’s Community of Practice for children and families social workers. It will also tie into the theme of World Social Work Day 2019 - ‘Promoting the Importance of Human Relationships’.

We want to bring the themes discussed in the Community of Practice to a wider audience, to encourage greater participation and focus on practice issues and solutions. There will be speakers and workshops which will help participants reflect on areas such as: the impact of austerity on practice and what we can do to overcome some of the challenges it poses; use of Section 12 payments; well-being and self-care; decision-making; Family Group Conferencing; effective communication and more.

This event will be open to all social workers working to support children and families. There will also be opportunity to hear about some of BASW/SASW’s current research and campaign work around austerity and working conditions.
