Social World Podcast – Post COVID19 Social Work

Dave Niven, Head of the Social World Podcast, recently interviewed Professor Ngoh Tiong Tan Chair of the Global Institute for Social Work about contributions social work can make to communities in the context of the Covid19 pandemic.

Professor Tan discussed facilitating crisis management with vulnerable groups and the importance of social solidarity; neighbourliness; compassion; social wellbeing and heightened levels of awareness at such times. In line with ITFCP recommendations, he stressed the value of building social networks within host countries including with local social work specialists and agencies. Is your school making efforts to identify vulnerable indigenous staff or others in your community linked to this issue?
