Anecdotal conversations with several social workers across sectors point to a need to refocus their practice towards a more structural basis. Targeting the societal structures that cause more harm, is now seen as one of the main tools in combatting the ever-increasing inroads neoliberal policies have made in society and the social work profession.
Many feel they need to move towards a radical social work practice model but find it almost impossible to do so. This research will look at what those barriers are that block practitioners from practicing radically through the voices of contemporary Aotearoa New Zealand practitioners.
I am looking for registered and non-registered trained social workers who self-identify as radical social workers. Those who have completed a Bachelor of Social Work, a Master of Social Work and / or the previously required Certificate.
Data will be collected preferably via face to face semi-structured interviews or alternatively over Skype, Facebook Messenger or Zoom.
I invite you to take part in this research.
