      Authors: Cristina Vidal-Marti, Antoni Ruiz Bueno
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Client violence towards social workers is a phenomenon with serious consequences that affect the professional, service and organisation. However, it is not known what effect such violence has on each. A systematic review of 26 studies found that the consequences have an impact on the social worker, the service and the organisation. In particular, it affects the health of the social worker, the professional relationship the professional relationship with the client and organisational functioning. It is stressed that prevention measures should be holistic and comprehensive to reduce violence, focusing on actions involving the professional and influencing organisational and contextual policies.

      Authors: Miao Jian, Miao Wang, Yingfei Du, Hao Yan
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Improving mental well-being is essential for social workers. Self-care services are often facilitated to enhance it, but there is limited research exploring their characteristics and effectiveness. We conducted a systematic review of self-care interventions targeting the mental well-being of social workers. A comprehensive search of four English and one Chinese databases yielded 2969 studies for initial screening. Fourteen eligible studies were finally included and reviewed. The results underscored mindfulness as prevalent and effective, with social work students being the main service recipients. Although with limitations, the findings inform future research and self-care services for social workers.

      Authors: Nada Alnaji, Bree Akesson, Danstan Bagenda
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This study analyzes stressors experienced by Syrian mothers in Lebanon in 2020 and emphasizes the necessity of addressing their distinct needs. Through in-depth interviews, it identifies stressors linked to living conditions in Lebanon, the economic crisis, health care access, and the impact of the pandemic. The study recommends that social workers should utilize and enhance existing support systems. It also recommends social policies facilitating mobility for Syrians to reunite with their families and livelihood programs enabling families to prioritize their own financial stability. This comprehensive approach has the potential to alleviate the challenges faced by Syrian mothers in Lebanon.

  • Research knowledge utilisation among Swedish health social workers:
           Influence of higher education, job tenure and workplace

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Daniel Ståhl, Jörgen Lundälv
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Health social workers, like social workers in general, have been found to utilise research knowledge to a low degree. No previous study has made comparisons based on the following: higher education, job tenure and workplace. This article is based on statistical comparisons between 1236 health social workers in Sweden working in various healthcare contexts. The central finding was that higher education was the factor with the largest impact. Workplace and especially job tenure were found to be less influential. An implication for practice is to raise the knowledge requirements in terms of research knowledge utilisation already from bachelor’s degree level.

      Authors: Rowalt Alibudbud
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores the roles of social workers in advancing LGBTQ+ inclusive mental healthcare in Southeast Asia. This role aligns with the global nature of the social work profession and several regional and national ethical frameworks and principles for social workers in Southeast Asia, emphasizing core values such as dignity, human rights, and social justice. Highlighting mental health disparities and social adversities faced by LGBTQ+ in the region, social workers can adopt a framework encompassing cultural competency, community support, advocacy, and research to improve the mental health outcomes of this marginalized population.

      Authors: Kedi Zhao, Ruth Wilson, Weijia Tan, Xiaoxue Kong, A. Ka Tat Tsang
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Knowledge transfer in global mental health services has long been depicted from Western perspectives. This article destabilizes this discourse through a conceptual model that integrates the top-down approach (macro postcolonial context, meso transnational knowledge transfer and micro mental health programmes) and the bottom-up approach (the roles of transcreation in reconfiguring micro mental health intervention, meso mental health services integration and macro policy advocacy and reform). This article raises social workers’ awareness of ongoing development of mental health services from a decolonizing perspective, and guides social work research and practice to continue the decolonization of global mental health services.

      Authors: Sarah Banks, Teresa Bertotti, Lynne Cairns, Jane Shears, Michelle Shum, Ana M Sobočan, Kimberly Strom, María Jesús Úriz
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This article draws on a series of international research-focused webinars with social workers in 2022. They were designed to examine the rethinking of professional values during the pandemic in the context of other global crises, particularly the climate emergency. Participants readily shared ethical issues relating to self-care, digital working and reduced bureaucracy during the pandemic and implications for future practice. The need for holistic, community-based approaches integrating social, health and economic aspects of people’s lives arose, and the importance of seeing humans as part of the natural world (eco-social approaches). Awareness of newer post-anthropocentric and posthuman philosophies was less evident.

      Authors: Karen S Rotabi-Casares, Patricia F Fronek, Justin S Lee
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The adoption of Ukrainian children, by US citizens, is examined as the Ukrainian government ceases adoptions of children during the chaos of war. Intercountry adoption dynamics are presented with data from 2021, prior to the conflict in 2022. Then, the situation regarding child rights and the official Ukrainian government position are considered. Implications for guardianship and foster care of unaccompanied refugee minors are presented along with other critical risks to Ukrainian children living in another country. Implications for social work practice are concluded and child rights advocacy is encouraged as a macro intervention.

  • Authoritarian nationalism and social work

      Authors: Mark Lusk, Marcin Boryczko, David Stoesz
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Despite predictions that liberal democracy was ascendent as a paradigm for governance in the contemporary era, the world has witnessed an alarming rise in authoritarian nationalism. A seeming preference for open and transparent models of plural democratic government has been challenged by the global advance of despotic and repressive regimes that are organized around racial, religious, and nationalist themes. Social work, grounded in the practice and pursuit of human rights, stands in stark contrast to authoritarian nationalism and is called to act through public diplomacy and soft power to counter emergent neo-fascism.

      Authors: Geng Wang, Limin Xu, Monit Cheung, Patrick Leung
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This study, guided by Taylor’s Great Disembedding Theory, examines global and Chinese societal values through the World Values Survey’s four-wave data from 1994 to 2014. Factor analysis shows six core values as disembedding factors (friends, leisure, politics) and embedding factors (family, work, religion). These data collected during China’s one-child policy and economic reforms reveal the country’s value shifts: leisure gains importance while politics is more moderate. This disembedding trend suggests a growing demand for social services driven by an emphasis on life balance. These evolving values guide social workers in tailoring programs to meet diverse needs shaped by personal and societal expectations.

  • The mediating effects of resilience on psychological distress in social
           workers in Singapore and South Korea during the Covid-19 pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Boon Kheng Seng, Ok Kyung Yang, You Jin Chung
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Under the pandemic situation, social workers functioning as front liners were found to be more adversely affected. This study examined the mediating effect of resilience between psychological distress and organizational support among frontline social workers in two countries, South Korea and Singapore. The hierarchical multiple regression and Sobel z-test were conducted. We found that resilience statistically significantly mediates the impact of organizational support on psychological distress among frontline social workers. Organizations in the social sectors need to consider how enhancing their practitioners’ resilience via resources like having quality relationships, professional identity, and self-care could contribute toward improving their well-being.

      This study examined the relationship between structural empowerment and affective commitment, mediated by work engagement, in frontline social workers in Spain. Based on two samples (240 participants from public agencies and 226 participants from private agencies) and using linear regression models (bootstrapping method), our results showed two effects in the relationship between structural empowerment and organizational commitment: a direct effect fostering experiences of power and an indirect effect by increasing engagement at work. Empowering human resources management (HRM) practices (access to opportunities, information, resources, and support) is a useful tool for managers and administrators, with strong benefits for both social workers and agencies.

      Authors: Dimitra Lattas, Cindy Davis, Catherine Creamer
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Unlike qualifying education, forensic social work education is heterogeneous. This review provides a cross-national comparison of 10 countries: the United States, Brazil, England, the Netherlands, Hungary, Kenya, South Africa, Thailand, India and Australia. It aims to understand education models across diverse contexts and encourage further reflection on forensic social work pedagogy. Findings revealed that there is little mandating of educational standards or curriculum requirements in forensic social work. Moreover, current modelling is drawn from Eurocentric epistemologies and has a duty to incorporate and celebrate First Nations, non-Western and culturally inclusive paradigms. Opportunities exist to develop international standards for forensic social work education.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The objective of this article is to identify relevant aspects of the bond between intervention agents and participants for the training of social workers and other professionals who are involved in programmes with a psychosocial component. A qualitative study was done, with 21 interviews with participants, intervention agents and a team leader, which were analysed using Grounded Theory. Transversal and technical skills, sources of training, facilitators and hinderers, and recommendations for training were identified. We conclude on the relevance of training in transversal and technical skills for the agent–participant bond for improving both social work practice and social care policies.

      Authors: Leandi Erasmus, Cornelia Hester Margaretha Bloem
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      In moving away from South Africa’s colonial past, social work training needs to embrace indigenised content and empower social workers to move towards practising from a developmental social work perspective. This requires a paradigm shift towards developmental social work training in South Africa. This study was conducted to look at the characteristics and challenges of developmental social work training in the Global South in order for South African social work training institutions to learn from the data and implement more an effective developmental social work training programme. The study was conducted through a scoping review. The five-step scoping review methodology was used to investigate and select recent literature on developmental social work training in the Global South. A thematic analysis was then used to scrutinise selected articles to extract core conclusions and recommendations made by authors to answer research questions. In addition to answering the research question about the characteristics and challenges to teaching developmental social work in the Global South, six main themes that should be highlighted when teaching developmental social work in the Global South were identified and are discussed in the article. These themes are critical thinking and reflective practice; political social work; field placement programmes; indigenisation; de-colonisation and historical context; economic development and empowerment and theoretical course content. For social work to stay relevant in the Global South, it is important for governments to provide universities with resources to enable them to implement effective developmental social work training.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The world population is ageing, and China is no exception. The Chinese government attaches great importance to older adults’ mental health in the increasingly ageing society. This study adopts a qualitative research approach to investigate how Narrative Therapy is applied from three dimensions in geriatric social work in the Chinese Mainland. There follows a discussion of the relationship between the three dimensions. It concludes with a recommendation on how to improve indigenization and specialization and build an evaluation tool combining qualitative and quantitative modes to promote better application in geriatric social work.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The invasion of Ukraine paints a complex picture for children. Russia has been accused of kidnapping and genocide, violating international rights and humanitarian laws. Some children taken by Russia will be adopted, all will be Russified, and the fate of others is unknown. Children of all ages taken from families or institutions have become weapons of war. Attempts at ‘rescues’ for the purpose of adoption mean children are also at risk from other actors. Social workers and NGOs play important roles in work with these children and their families. The Taken Children of Ukraine is the focus of this article.

      Authors: George W. Turner, Dibya Shree Chhetry, Rohena Round
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Sessional academics are often employed on a part-time, contract basis as casual (e.g. adjunct) teaching staff. Internationally, universities benefit from the expertise and experience of these educational team members. However, there is a lack of research in the literature identifying how to support them. This article attempts to bridge this gap by presenting the mentoring (e.g. faculty development) experiences of three social work educators. Drawing from queer theory, we utilized collaborative autoethnography and inductive analysis resulting in three themes: (1) mentoring building blocks, (2) mentoring blueprint, and (3) mentoring strengths and challenges. Finally, broader implications are discussed.

      Authors: Hüseyin Doğan, Sema Buz
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This study aims to explore the impact of climate change anxiety on various aspects of social work and examine the relationship between anxiety and socio-demographic variables. The study’s participants comprised students enrolled in social work education programs in Turkey. The results suggest that students who are highly anxious about climate change express anxiety regarding various problem areas within social work. The study suggests that anxieties about climate change can potentially lead to anxiety within social work domains, thus exerting a negative impact on social work policy and practices.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The use of virtual reality as a learning tool is becoming increasingly prevalent in social work education. This systematic review aims to analyse the findings of studies that have applied virtual reality to social work training through thematic and content analyses. Our results show that the main advantages of virtual reality for social work training cited in the literature include improvements in motivation, and the acquisition of competencies and skills specific to the discipline of social work (assessment, diagnosis and intervention), among others. The main limitations include temporal constraints in the application of virtual reality, as well as perceived dehumanisation.

      Authors: Tanzilya Oren
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The current immigration policies and problematic definitions are unfair to people seeking protection in the United States and elsewhere. Non-intersectional policies go against the work ethos of social workers. At the same time, without any federal support for asylum seekers and disparate state and city services, asylum seekers are denied fundamental human rights. Social workers are now pushed to work more closely with asylum seekers. They should thoroughly understand the structural issues around asylum policies and engage in policy advocacy to change outdated and unidimensional laws.

      The COVID-19 pandemic has been shaping Chinese social workers to contribute to public health. To study the details, this article aims to explore the roles of social workers during the pandemic in China’s mainland and how social workers fulfilled their roles. The study used a cross-sectional design with a convergent parallel-mixed methodology. Its findings provide another piece of evidence demonstrating the functions of social work practitioners during a health crisis worldwide. However, the ambiguities of the social work profession in addressing public health emergencies were also unveiled in the case of China.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The present article presents empirical evidence regarding factors that explain the involvement of social workers from minority groups in policy practice based on data from an extensive survey of social workers from the Arab minority group in Israel (n = 218). The findings revealed that the sociopolitical context of an ethnic minority significantly affects their involvement in policy practice. In order to increase the involvement of minority social workers in policy arenas in multicultural societies, professional bodies and social work training frameworks should provide social workers with knowledge resources and professional skills, including tailored organizational support.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Internally displaced persons in protracted displacement may not receive optimal social work services. Governments must refrain from implicitly ‘ending’ displacement and uphold social care policies that really work for the displaced. By doing so, social work services become more sensitive and life-changing among people displaced for longer periods of time.

      This article aims to explain the process of social worker interventions in emergency response situations in Iran. Content analysis techniques were used to analyze the experiences of hospital social workers (n = 40). The nominal group technique was used to design and compile the process (n = 10). Focus group discussion and the AGREE guidance critique technique were conducted in the presence of experts. In this study, the process of providing specialized interventions of hospital social workers in crisis situations, the challenges, and professional roles were identified. The principles and basis of work in crisis situations are similar, but at the same time, each one needs special consideration.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This study aims to reveal the paternal perception and experiences of middle-class fathers of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the context of hegemonic masculinity and gender. The research design is based on a phenomenological approach with a qualitative research pattern; thus, the participants, comprising 18 fathers of children with ASD, were reached through the purposive sampling method. Analysis results pointed to the following themes: ‘Fathers’ feelings on the basis of masculinity’, ‘Imagined–actual fatherhood’, and ‘Work–family–life balance’. The findings indicated that fathers of children with ASD had their fatherhood patterns changed toward nurturant fatherhood. Being an educated and professional member of the middle class, being dual-earner parents, and having a child with autism are effective in this transformation. Suggestions are made as to social policy and feminist social work practices for the development of nurturant fatherhood and egalitarian gender relations.

      Hosted internally displaced persons become ‘invisible’, leaving them unable to immediately access incoming aid and to be assisted through social work services. Social welfare policy must enhance the intervention paradigm in ways that disseminate social work efforts to entire displaced populations, ensuring that the invisible ones are not left behind.

      For centuries understood as a micro-level caring profession, recently social work is dramatically changing its goals due to structural changes in societies, climate change, migration and political instability. The article employs cross-cultural comparisons that aim to reveal the invariant structure of the social work field, which is realized through the unique manifestations of social work practices in different cultural contexts in Lithuania, Japan, and the United States. The research identifies four social work practices in the professional fields and presents them based on the concepts of field, habitus, and capital, highlighting the similarities and differences between countries in the application of rules of the social field.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      A surge in scholarship on minoritised gender and sexual identities has supported the advancement of LGBTQ+ family rights in many developed countries internationally. However, further work is needed to ensure LGBTQ+ families are fully included within integrated care systems. This article presents a subset of empirical findings from a narrative inquiry conducted in the United Kingdom. Eight LGBTQ+ participants were interviewed about their experiences and perspectives on adoption, fostering and birth children. Findings indicate that social work has a key role in addressing the cisgenderism prevalent in services, to enhance inclusivity within integrated care systems that support LGBTQ+ family life.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      As climate disasters increase, social workers will increasingly be called upon to help communities with the related dislocations, eco-anxieties, and social transformations. This article explores the extent to which Canadian social work schools are preparing social workers to advance socio-ecological justice. It examines the coursework in these programmes as new standards come into effect in 2023. We consider radical, eco-social, feminist and Indigenous pedagogies, and focus on how experiential learning and transformative hope can address the manifold systemic challenges we now face. Rather than bolting eco-education onto existing programming, radical perspectives and transformative praxis must be embedded into social work.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, I discuss the need for African social workers to unite if the decolonisation of the social work profession is to be successful. This unity can come through the creation of a strong regional association of social work, which can then promote research, social work regulation and the creation of national associations of social work across Africa – and these can provide the necessary structures for collective action. Such a move will promote unity of purpose and provide a basis for decolonisation. For as long as we are divided, we will continue to lose relevance and recognition.

      A scoping review framework was used to explore and synthesize the existing international research surrounding social workers’ application of theory into practice. The results indicated: (a) social workers report employing pragmatic approaches; (b) although some social workers struggle to explicitly identify the theories and methods they utilize, implicit theoretical application is evident; (c) time is the greatest barrier to theoretical application; and (d) some social workers are concerned with individual functioning rather than social justice. There is a need to integrate theory into education and future research to explore the link between theory and practice implemented by social workers internationally.

      This study investigates the evolving ways in which social workers helped provide food assistance during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic in communities in South Africa and the United States. A cross-national qualitative methodology was used to collect data about the nutritional services social workers delivered, the types of social capital used to assist in these efforts, and the challenges they experienced. This study not only highlights differences in the approaches of these two countries but also how these different communities might be able to learn from one another in delivering food relief during times of emergency.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Human rights violations targeting Christians have accelerated dramatically in the last decade. Social work is ethically committed to challenging religious discrimination and promoting human rights, yet the profession’s literature has featured little content on this growing human rights crisis. In keeping with calls from the United Nations to address this issue, data on the increasing prevalence and intensity of human rights violations aimed at Christians are reviewed. After articulating a theoretical framework to understand the discrimination, strategies are discussed that social workers might implement to promote more inclusive, socially just societies.

      Providing validated instruments in higher education on social support perceived by students allows research and improvement of university policies aimed at developing the psychosocial well-being of future social workers. The objective of the study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the social provisions scale (SPS) in a sample of uniiversity students of social work in Spain. The results obtained through structural equation modeling confirmed the structure of six correlated factors and adequate levels of reliability; and factorial invariance analysis indicates that the SPS remains stable up to the level of metric invariance for the sex variable.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Studies done before tend to amplify the role of institutions in improving the welfare of individuals and families. Few studies interrogate the role of beneficiaries in micro-social work interventions. Using NGOs’ interventions as a case study, beneficiaries are going the extra mile to reap maximum benefits, and some of their actions are organic, spontaneous and context-specific and are not influenced by NGOs themselves. The findings deepen community practice by appreciating that NGOs’ beneficiaries can organise for social action in pursuit of household welfare. There are better outcomes when micro-social work builds on the potential of clients.

      Authors: Fiona C Doherty, Smitha Rao, Angelise R Radney
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This systematic review examines current evidence on the association between extreme weather and child, early, and forced marriage (CEFM). Studies published in English between 1990 and 2022 were identified through ten databases, and independently screened for inclusion followed by data extraction, quality assessment, and narrative synthesis. Of the 20 studies included, CEFM was a major theme in the qualitative studies; quantitative and mixed-method studies noted a positive association between extreme weather and CEFM. Limitations include reporting bias, non-representative samples, and limited geographic coverage. Health professionals and social workers must recognize the complexities surrounding CEFM and extreme weather, which will worsen amid climate change.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Economic sanctions are a punishment mechanism to ensure that governments respect human rights. However, sanctions affect nations, and pose challenges social workers in health care practice. The present note discusses the connection between health care and economic sanctions, and the challenges that health care social workers face due to the sanctions.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Eradicating poverty is a fundamental objective of social work, both at local and at global levels. After COVID-19, the United Nations Commission for Social Development and Sustainable Development Goals, the global agenda developed by the International Association of Schools of Social Work, the International Council on Social Welfare and the International Federation of Social Workers have placed the fight against poverty and the role of decent work at the forefront of the public agenda. We analyse most recent publications on decent work, highlighting two strategies to promote poverty eradication from social work: participation and education.

      Authors: Manuel Flores Sánchez, Violeta Seva López
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This article analyses the approaches taken by the reconceptualisation movement to find out whether it is still an enduring process in the frameworks of international social work. The conclusions reached are that the discourses of these organisations are still ostensibly politically committed, but their ideological position is very moderate.

      Authors: Zaldy C Collado
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Hosting internally displaced people (IDPs) may later on develop into frustration and animosity. To strengthen the chances for building back better, social work practice may mediate in these hosting arrangements to ensure a smooth and sustainable transition. This is perhaps an unexplored opportunity to step up social welfare services among people displaced by war.

  • Can certification improve the professional competence of Chinese social

      Authors: Haibo Qin, Yukun Li
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The social work certification system in China does not require a professional education in social work and makes compromises for a lack of higher education. This brief statement introduces a study we are currently conducting to analyze the impact of the government-led social work certification system on the professional competence of practitioners. As a ‘level evaluation’ rather than an ‘admission requirement’ qualification exam, social workers without professional backgrounds show significant improvement in their professional competence after obtaining a license. This provides a new perspective for the development of social work in other countries, promoting the rapid development of social work through government-led initiatives and lowering barriers.

  • Preventing adolescents’ social exclusion with serious games –
           a scoping review

      Authors: Henna Mäkinen, Elina Kauhanen, Kati Nykänen, Taina Romppanen, Jaana-Maija Koivisto
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      The review explored how serious games are utilized for preventing adolescents’ social exclusion. Four original articles were retrieved using six databases. The use of serious games to prevent adolescents’ social exclusion was rare, but there are potential areas where serious games could be utilized. Serious games may be a promising new intervention to use in adolescents’ social rehabilitation and social work, preventing social exclusion, reducing the risk of unemployment, lack of education and training. These early findings suggest using serious games as a part of adolescents’ social work and social rehabilitation to prevent social exclusion among adolescents, along with other methods.

      Authors: Mzukisi Xweso, Emmison Muleya, John Victor Rautenbach
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Through its constitution, South Africa has declared provision of high-quality education to all citizens is a human right. However, violence, bullying and poverty threaten to impede, if not preclude attainment of this goal. This voice from practice highlights social work interventions that provide psychosocial support to learners to tackle the challenges.

  • COVID-19 and the changing roles of social workers in minority communities:
           Lessons from the Israeli ultra-Orthodox community

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Noam Tarshish, Hani Nouman, Alex Altshuler
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Minority groups have been disproportionately vulnerable to COVID-19’s effects. Whereas, social workers have been instrumental in countering those effects, their roles have been understudied, particularly during the ‘new normal’ that followed the outbreak. This gap is addressed by drawing on interviews with 28 social workers in the Jewish ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) society in Israel, held after the outbreak and during the ‘new normal’. Three main roles are identified: first responders, during the outbreak; a voice for community needs, in the ‘new normal’; and policy translators – throughout. The findings contribute a temporal aspect to the literature by highlighting social workers’ dynamic roles.

  • The aftermath: Community workers as place-makers in conflict-riven
           societies

      Authors: Tamar Shwartz-Ziv
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Social workers play a vital role in making violence-stricken communities into safer places for human development. However, research examining the experiences of community practitioners in political conflicts is scarce. Using a place-making analytical framework, this study addresses this gap exploring community practitioners’ practices around outbreaks of violence in Israeli Jewish-Arab mixed cities. Based on 50 semi-structured interviews, the findings reveal three modalities of place-making: place-developing, place-protecting, and place-remaking. The study highlights community practice’s significant role in constructing spaces in light of practitioners’ sense of place. It encourages the inclusion of place-making as a framework to understand social work within conflict zones.

      This Brief Note emphasizes the growing phenomenon of undocumented migration and the critical role of social work to address the challenges faced by undocumented migrants. It articulates the moral obligation of social work, as an institution, to extend assistance but argues that undocumented migrants be recognized as a special category of concern.

      The purpose of this brief note is to critically reflect on the unresolvedness of the multiple debates within the field of social work, using both scholar and practitioner perspectives. These debates include theory’s relationship to research and practice, the micro-mezzo-macro practice divides, and broader questions of the profession’s identity.

      Authors: Nurliana Cipta Apsari, Budi Muhammad Taftazani, Meilanny Budiarti Santoso
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Indonesia is in a state of drug emergency, both for the misuse and the distribution of drugs. Various institutions for drug abuse rehabilitation have been established, including Islamic-based rehabilitation using ritual spiritualism aimed at replacing habits of drug use with habits of ritual Islamic religious practice. Using a descriptive qualitative approach, the study describes the rehabilitation process at a faith-based rehabilitation centre and analyses the process from the spiritual approach of social work. The result shows long-term ritual religious activities have replaced the drug abusers’ behaviours. To avoid drug abusive behaviour, further processes to strengthen drug-free behaviours are necessary.

      Authors: Weijia Tan, Ka Tat Tsang, Jian Su, Kedi Zhao
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Funeral services are related to the vital interests of human beings and are supposed to meet people’s social, psychological and spiritual needs. More and more people from the funeral service industry have realized the importance of bringing helping professionals into the funeral service industry to fill in service gaps. Based on the Strategies and Skills Learning and Development system, a practice framework for funeral social work is proposed. The framework incorporates services in direct service, education and training, administrative management and research development. It targets families, relatives and other related people of the deceased, staff and management and local communities.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This study focuses on international development aid policies implemented by municipalities. By proposing a theoretical framework and addressing the Spanish context, it first explores the added value and the challenges involved with this kind of decentralised aid. Second, it discusses the implications in terms of the competencies required by social workers in order to leverage the potential of these aid policies. The research draws on the qualitative analysis of documents, interviews and discussion groups. It concludes that international social workers need knowledge, values and skills in widely different aspects in order to overcome the challenges entailed in aid from municipalities.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This study aims to relate the sociodemographic and work-related variables that characterize social work professionals with the presence or absence of burnout. A single-group ex post facto prospective descriptive design questionnaire was created incorporating sociodemographic data and the Maslach Burnout Inventory. The study involved 442 members of professional social workers’ associations in Spain. The results indicated a burnout prevalence of 11.4% among the participants and a strong tendency to suffer from it. Significant differences were also found in the sociodemographic and work-related variables collected.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This article is intended to explore the link between the study of defamilisation and that of the adult worker model. To meet this purpose, a defamilisation framework for studying issues concerning the adult worker model and defamilisation is developed. To show the empirical significance of these issues, evidence is drawn from a childcare gap typology covering eight European countries. Conducting these analytical tasks provides insights into the development of social work practices for enhancing women’s welfare.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      This study explores if and how migrating social workers’ gender, country of origin and time living in the United Kingdom relate to their job and life satisfaction, and to building a new social network post-migration. Online questionnaires and semi-structured interviews were carried out with participants from Australia, Canada, India, Romania, South Africa, the United States and Zimbabwe. We found a statistically significant connection between the length of time in the United Kingdom and satisfaction from working as social workers and living in the United Kingdom. All our participating groups were generally only mildly satisfied professionally, but satisfied with living in the United Kingdom.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Despite growing knowledge of intervention outcomes associated with Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, practitioner-centred processes of training and implementation, especially involving social workers of the same organisation in a non-Western, Asian setting, remain research gaps. Over 1 year, using in-depth qualitative interviews with Singaporean youth workers to understand individual and organisational experiences of training and implementation, findings indicated that, chronologically and cumulatively, the combination of a formative training experience, individual implementation, and organisational and team experiences led to personal and professional development. This study has implications for youth workers to better understand the therapy individually and organisationally, thereby improving its long-term impact.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      In most countries around the world, social workers assist financially vulnerable people, but they often do so with little or no training in finance. This article examines the development and pilot testing of a financial curriculum to be used in social work education and training in Singapore. Feedback from social workers informed development of the curriculum, which is practical and capability-based. The study covers two phases: first curriculum development, then pilot testing. Focus group methods are used to analyse the process and effectiveness of curriculum development and the initial training outcomes.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ibrahim Mahajne
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Mayors play a major role in determining their locality’s welfare policies and significantly influence the welfare bureaus’ work. This study employed in-depth semi-structured interviews with 19 mayors of local Arab governments in Israel to examine this issue. It found that the mayors fiercely criticize the welfare bureaus in four areas of concern, claiming that they ignore particular needs, neglect core target populations, lack culture-sensitive responses and their functioning is defective. The mayors’ criticism of welfare bureau inadequacies sheds light on Welfare Ministry policies that allocate lower discriminatory budgets to Arab welfare bureaus and are insensitive to Arab society’s cultural-religious needs.

      Authors: Venesio Bwambale Bhangyi
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      As social work gains strength as a global profession, indigenous social work has emerged within the growing calls to decolonize the profession and offers an alternative worldview. This article uses a systematic literature review to engage with the application of this indigenous social work paradigm in practice with older persons from an international perspective. Using the knowledge mobilization perspective, it examines the current state of knowledge on indigenous social work and draws implications for practice with older persons. It concludes by advocating for a political stance to practice rooted in indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing.

      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      Social entrepreneurship in social work is vital to finding innovative, creative, and long-term solutions to complex and persistent social problems. Among all social workers, community social workers are the ones who are most expected to be innovative and entrepreneurial. This study explored the motivations for engaging in social entrepreneurship, as well as the action strategies adopted by community social workers who successfully implemented social innovations within the social services where they work. Research findings revealed five action strategies that have the potential to promote successful social ventures; a combination of individual and organizational characteristics motivates entrepreneurial behavior in social work.

      Authors: Kedi Zhao, Rupaleem Bhuyan
      Abstract: International Social Work, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, we apply theories of non-citizenship assemblage to conceptualise the dynamic relationship of social determinants of health for international students in Canada who face barriers to accessing COVID-19 vaccines and verifying their vaccination status. Social workers’ roles in responding to and reducing these inequities are also discussed with attention to micro practice, meso service integration, and macro public policy advocacy. Through theorising assembled inequities emerging from Canada’s COVID-19 vaccination policies, this article offers guidance for future social work research and practice towards promoting justice and equity for transnational populations who are often excluded from domestic social welfare programmes.
