TFEL Webinar: “What is Social Work?”

February 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC+0

This webinar will discuss the creative process undertaken in creating the “I Work for Change” documentary, as well as discuss some of the themes that emerged from the interviews, and their implications for field education.

Social work has been plagued by myths, misunderstandings and misperceptions since the profession began. Current debates in social work challenge the profession’s identity, such as “Does social work possess a unique ethical and moral identity characterized by a commitment to social justice?” (Weinberg & Campbell, 2014); and “Can social workers resist neoliberal influences that exercise social control and manage risk” (Banks, 2016; Johnstone, 2015)? The profession of social work was explored by interviewing 32 social work practitioners and academics, in addition to street interviews with students and people on the streets of Halifax, Nova Scotia. These interviews were filmed and recorded to create a social work documentary titled I Work for Change.

This webinar will occur on Tuesday, February 16th from 10:00 am – 11:00 am MST / 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EST.

Presenters: Cyndi Hall (Field Education Coordinator, School of Social Work, Dalhousie University); Nancy Ross (Assistant Professor, School of Social Work, Dalhousie University)

Ce webinaire discutera du processus créatif engagé dans la création du documentaire «Je travaille pour le changement», ainsi que de certains des thèmes qui ont émergé des entretiens et de leurs implications pour l’éducation sur le terrain. Le travail social est en proie à des mythes, des malentendus et des idées fausses depuis le début de la profession. Les débats actuels en travail social remettent en question l’identité de la profession, tels que “Le travail social a-t-il une identité éthique et morale unique caractérisée par un engagement pour la justice sociale?” (Weinberg et Campbell, 2014); et “Les travailleurs sociaux peuvent-ils résister aux influences néolibérales qui exercent un contrôle social et gèrent les risques” (Banks, 2016; Johnstone, 2015)? La profession de travailleur social a été explorée en interviewant 32 praticiens en travail social et universitaires, en plus d’entrevues de rue avec des étudiants et des gens dans les rues de Halifax, en Nouvelle-Écosse. Ces entretiens ont été filmés et enregistrés pour créer un documentaire sur le travail social intitulé I Work for Change.

Ce webinaire aura lieu le Mardi 16 Février de 10 h 00 à 11 h 00 MST / 13 h 00. à 14 h 00 EST.
