Description

THE UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD TWILIGHT SOCIAL WORK SEMINAR

Dr Jo Warner, Reader in Social Work at The University of Kent

Jo is particularly concerned to improve our understanding of the way ‘risk work’ has shaped professional practice and the impact of cultures of inquiry, fear and blame on social workers and others. She has undertaken several projects involving the qualitative analysis of documents such as inquiry reports, serious case reviews and media accounts such as newspaper reports. Her book 'The Emotional Politics of Social Work and Child Protection' gained national and international acclaim for its contribution to helping practitioners and academics explore how collective emotions, such as anger, shame, fear and disgust, are central to constructions of risk and blame. In her current research, Jo is analysing the politics of social work through interviews with Members of Parliament.

This promises to be a thought provoking evening, and it is open to staff, students and professionals in the Teaching Partnership.
