Perspectives of experts by lived experiences in social work

Private E-team



This E-team is about sharing, how including experts benefits all those who are involved in social work and contributes to changing the nature and discourse of social work education and research.


Experts by experience, people who have been or are on the other side of the fence of social and mental health services and are able to use their experiences in a qualified manner, are invited to join social work education programs. Together with students and social workers they reflect on an extensive list of issues, for example, the importance of humane contact, the loopholes in the welfare system, the omnipresence of prejudice and power lingering in social and mental health services also, and the thin line between being an accepted member of the system and being a person in need. The overall positive responses affirm that hearing the perspective of experience helps students to gain a profounder understanding of the complex issues people in practice are facing
