C3) Perspectives on & about critical social work

Felix Seidel (HS Bremen, student): Perspectives on and about critical social work (Wednesday, 22nd, 10-12:30)

The ability to critically reflect conditions, approaches, methods and results of social work is a key necessity for social workers. On the one hand, a critical perspective enables professionals to reflect their interventions and the outcomes of their work. On the other hand, critique makes it possible to position oneself in the complex conflicts about the conceptualisation of welfare, social security, social justice and social work in general. The goal of this workshop is to discuss and exchange views, ideas and perspectives on critical reflection in social work in both senses and to provide a forum for comparative international perspectives for critical thinking in social work.
