Saol presents at 10th European Conference for Social Work Research
While we should have been in Bucharest on 6th May 2021, Dr. Hilda Loughran, UCD, and I presented at the 10th European Conference on Social Work Research from Zoom instead. We talked about our work with the SAOL Sisters and Coolmine's Ashleigh House participants in gathering information on how social workers can better work with women who use substances. We spoke alongside others from Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden and it was great to be among researchers who understand the necessity of working with service users who are partners in research and not merely 'subjects'. We look forward to developing contacts with European collaborators from this experience. And thanks to Hilda for doing all of the heavy lifting.
