So another weekend, another series of links that I’ve found in and around the social work blogging networks.
I want to start with a few new blogs I’ve come across.
Unsettling Social Work is written by an academic who is primarily concerned with the sociology of social work – last week he shares his thoughts on Cameron’s mission to save children from sexualisation and commercialisation.
And back to some of the regulars –
Another fantastic post at Social Work Tech Blog which shows some of the possibilities of incorporating technology into practice – this time the author takes us through the process of how he made psychoeducational videos for sharing and he shares the videos he made. Really very impressive and as always, he makes us more aware of the untapped possibilities of using technology increasingly in practice. Particularly as we (in the UK) have quite narrow definitions of what social work practice is at the moment – I suspect that will change substantially over the coming years.
Social Jerk shares her ever amusingly truthful take on unsolicited advice.
How Not to Do Social Work shares his thoughts about the difficulties of finding work and particularly how that affects children leaving care.
And at Social Work Career Development, Dorlee shares her learning from her first week of job hunting. I find her posts very inspirational and positive. I would recommend them to anyone looking for work in any field.
Finally another non-social work specific post but a great insight into the Neary case from The Small Places – worth a read and a save if you are involved in working with the Mental Capacity Act and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards in particular – or want to know more.
And with that, I’m off for the weekend again. If you come across any interesting sites or links that I haven’t picked up on, please do share with me!
Have a good weekend!
