Code: BH/19/1152 Adults CPD Module: Social Work in Multidisciplinary Settings

To express and interest in this module please 'request a place' by the 31st July 2019 (now extended)

This module will explore social work practice in private, voluntary, independent or health-based settings working with complex issues such as mental health, substance misuse and/or homelessness, either with children and young people, or with adults. Students will consider issues of social work professional identity, as well as the skills and knowledge that social workers use in these settings and the value bases applicable to such work. The module will also enable students to update their knowledge regarding the legal and policy framework and implications for their practice.

The module is delivered over 5 days using a range of methods including presentations, structured discussions and exercises designed to draw on participants practice and personal experience.  Small groups of students will be encouraged to share their perspectives, critique the concepts which are presented to them and apply learning to their own specialist social work context.

The aim is for students to:

  • Explore what it means to be a qualified social worker practicing in either a healthcare setting, or in a non-statutory agency, as part of a multidisciplinary team. 
  • Enable students to critically reflect upon the application of social work theory, knowledge, values and skills to practice in their setting.
  • Update students’ knowledge and critical understanding of relevant law and policy, including safeguarding.
