Event description
WSWD Conference held by the Social Work Department at the University of Chester, looking at Promoting the Importance of Human Relationships.

About this Event

Following last year’s successful World Social Work Day event, the Joint BA/MA Social Work Programs at the University of Chester are holding a further conference addressing the WSWD theme of ‘Promoting the Importance of Human Relationships’.

Across the day a variety of guest speakers will use a range of media (visual arts, poetry, theatrical monologue and workshops) to share their understanding of the centrality within social work of recognising, building and maintaining human relationships.

Key note speaker is Siobhan Maclean. Siobhan is a highly acclaimed author and delivers bespoke training and consultancy for social workers on a national and international level.

Other contributors include Paul Yusuf McCormack—a creative artist expressing his experiences through the care system via art and visual aids. Paul addresses human relationships linked to loss, separation and identity, along with the importance of working with vulnerable children.

Haylo Theatre will present a relationship-based drama adapted for the day, considering relationship, bereavement and loss, and a presenter with direct lived experience of complex needs will be talking of the impact offending and homelessness on relationships.

NB - We appreciate that some of the topics being discussed throughout the day may be emotionally triggering, and we would like to ask that you respect yourselves and others during the event when such themes are raised.

  • CPD Certificates Available
  • Parking available across the campus.
  • Refreshments on arrival from 9:30 until 10:00 for a formal start.
  • Lunch will also be provided on the day, however, please be aware that we are unable to cater for all dietary requirements.
