Social Work Education Call for Papers - Special Issue

Social Work Education with Minority Groups

Social Work Education

Recent trends in social work education continues to evidence the experiences of minority groups as different to that of the majority groups.

Younger students, male students, students with disabilities, LGBT, students from Black Minority Ethnic, First Nations, Aboriginal and Indigenous backgrounds have been reported to experience marginalisation and discrimination during their training to become social workers.

At a time when social work across the globe is challenged to respond to growing inequality, discrimination and oppression of minority groups, this special edition is inviting papers from social work educators from around the world.

Abstracts should identify clearly which minority group/s are being examined and highlight any challenges and good practice when working with these groups.

Themes include:

  • Outcomes of anti-racist social work education
  • Innovative strategies for effectively teaching, learning and assessing students from minority groups
  • Theoretical frameworks for understanding and challenging disadvantage and discrimination on social work programmes
  • Promoting social justice, equality and fairness in social work education
  • Student, service user and carer perspectives on social work education
  • International perspectives and strategies used when working with diverse students
  • Inclusive teaching and learning practices in practice and field education
