EMERITUS PROFESSOR MARK DOEL PROFILE

Social Work in 40 Objects

Can the story of social work be told through Objects? Might a collection of objects be more illuminating than a formal text book or a dry definition? Can Objects evoke the relational basis of social work practice?

Mark Doel hosts a blog (socialworkin40objects.com) that has attracted over 130 Objects contributed by people from 24 countries across five continents. In this presentation he explores the use of Objects to evoke an inclusive social work and to explain social work to a broader public.

The blog has been transformed into a book, Social Work in 42 Objects (and more). It costs £10, with all profits and royalties donated to TARA Children’s Centre in Delhi which rescues, shelters and educates street children.
