The Social Work Stories Podcast

The Social Work Stories Podcast


A podcast exploring Social Work practice through stories & critical reflection.

Ever heard from a social worker with an ongoing position in a school before?

How about a social work student with an intensive field placement in a school?

In this episode Mim & Lis sit down with Professor Myfanwy Maple of the University of New England (Australia) to talk through what might come from the opportunity of having social workers and social work field placements in schools. Enjoy the chat and expand your thinking as you listen along to this fantastic episode. We absolutely loved it.
