Our tenth podcasts, time to think about progress...

What has happened in social work in the last year that felt like progress? What do we need to work on?

 

As our podcast, Helpful Social Work, comes up to a year old, Jo Fox and I look back on the last twelve months in social work.

We try and avoid thinking just about what’s different (change), and look for where things have got better (progress). There are positives, despite the difficult context, but a lot still to do.

9a Challenge

The first part of our ninth podcast is on the topic of challenge. We consider how we can supportively and ethically challenge one another.
