Event description

Description

The recent tragedy at Grenfell Tower has evidenced the disastrous effects of inequality. Emerging studies of social harm have sought to bring attention to the avoidable and injurious effects of capitalist society. Social harm can be said to occur when:

  • Physical and/or mental wellbeing is unequally spread
  • Our capacity for autonomous action and self-actualisation is undermined
  • Our capacity to build social networks are impeded
  • Human flourishing is compromised by the denial of resources necessary to exercise life choices

Research shows that the most deprived neighbourhoods produce the most social work demand. Yet, little is known about how individuals, families and communities experience harm within settings characterised by multiple deprivation.

Introducing ongoing and co-produced work with sociologists from the University of Sheffield and Community Development Workers from Unity Gym Project (Broomhall, Sheffield) this masterclass reveals the lived experience of ‘harmful contexts’ from the perspective of young people and parents. By offering uniquely detailed accounts of the daily challenges residents face, this session seeks to extend understandings of the ways in which social contexts bear upon individual behaviours and choices.

Opportunities to reflect critically on the complexities and challenges of social work practice in areas of multiple deprivation will be provided.
