Social work to take centre stage

Published Monday, 05 June 2017

A live theatre performance will be one of the highlights of a Council-run conference focusing on the very latest skills in social work practice for children and adults.

Putting Practice First, from June 26-30, is inviting social work and children’s services professionals from Coventry and all over the country to take part in a series of events and workshops.

One of the events will be Knocking on the door – a play focusing on a child protection home visit and a workshop looking at how practitioners work with men in early help and child protection.

The play is a collaboration between Geese Theatre and leading social work academic and author Professor Harry Ferguson and will merge a traditional key-note lecture with vivid theatre performances.

Lee Pardy-McLaughlin, conference co-organiser and Principal Social Worker for Children, said: “There are so many thought-provoking topics being covered during the conference and I would encourage any social work professional with an interest in challenging and improving themselves to come along.”
