About the Event
Would you like to enhance your social work knowledge base and evidence-based practice experience?
Do you want to learn more about research taking place in the region and how it can inform your social work practice?
We know that evidence-based practice is crucial to good social work. It helps keep us professionally curious.
However, in the busy world of front line social work , we know that it can be challenging to keep up to date with the latest research, to make sense of it and understand how it applies to the day to day issues that social workers deal with.
The West Midlands Social Work Teaching Partnership is committed to developing links between research and practice in social work. We want to support practitioners to engage with research that can help them with the real-world issues that they work with daily.
We are therefore looking to host a series of quarterly Learning from Research Seminars, the first of these being planned for 8 November 2021. The seminar will take place online via Microsoft teams from 2pm -3.30pm.
The seminars will include a presentation from a researcher who will discuss a piece of research with key findings and messages for contemporary social work practice, followed by time for questions and reflections for learning and moving forwards. These sessions will provide learning for both adults and children’s practitioners, with opportunity to feedback some messages from practice to help inform future research.
The first speaker will be Dr Peter Unwin from the University of Worcester. He will be presenting his research from 2019-2020, exploring experiences of disability and discrimination in Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Communities in the UK and revealing key messages for contemporary social work practice. This research was co-produced with the Shaping Our Lives User Network and the research includes the voices of GRT members profiled in videos, produced by GRT community members.
