COVID-19: the struggle, success and expansion of social work
IFSW Secretary-General, Rory Truell provides an overview of the first 5 months of the Social Work Response to COVID-19. He says there are clear phases highlighting social workers’ struggles and outcomes:
1. Making governments recognise that a social response is imperative;
2. Advocating for social services to remain open during lockdown;
3. Adapting social services to a new world & managing ethical dilemmas, and
4. Integrating transformative practice.
Dr Truell comments, “What has become clear is that this transformative process, though far from painless, has seen a new rising of the profession”.
