Norfolk County Council and University of East Anglia Hosting Re-imagining Anti-oppressive and Anti-Discriminatory Practice in Social Work Event

Final preparations are being made for the Re-imagining Anti-oppressive and Anti-discriminatory Practice in Social Work event, aimed at social work practice supervisors, which has been developed by Norfolk County Council and University of East Anglia, both members of the Suffolk and Norfolk Social Work Teaching Partnership.

Social workers who are Practice Educators, Practice Leads, Practice Consultants, Deputy Team Managers and Team Managers will gather in Norwich on Friday 19th May 2023, to hear from speakers and take part in workshops on a range of topics.

There is an impressive line of speakers - all from the University of East Anglia‚Äôs School of Social Work -  and they include Dr Carlene Cornish, Professor Beth Neil, Dr Ann Anka, Professor Christine Cocker, Dr Jane Hernon and Dr Jeanette Cossar.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss a range of topics, relevant to both children and adult social work, including hidden disabilities, sexuality, and race. There are a number of workshops planned which draw on recent research and include perspectives of people with lived experience.

This event is one in a series to share innovative approaches and good practice and challenge and influence everyday thinking and behaviour in relation to anti-racist practice, and is supported by the Suffolk and Norfolk Social Work Teaching Partnership.
