Practice learning is integral to the curriculum for qualifying social work students. Accreditation standards require regular student supervision and exposure to specific learning activities. Most agencies offer high-quality placements, but organizational cutbacks may affect supervision and restrict the development of competence and professional identity. Undergraduate social work students in Northern Ireland universities (n=396) were surveyed about the usefulness of the learning activities they ...

The positive benefits of group singing for physical and mental health and perceived wellbeing in the general population are drawing increased attention from researchers (Stewart & Lonsdale 2016, Clift et al 2016). Investigations of the benefits of singing have revealed improvements in the immune system of people with cancer (Fancourt et al 2016) and benefits to quality of life and respiratory function in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (Bonilha et al 2009) and quadriplegia (Tamplin et al 2...

Previous research suggests that the supervisory relationship between the social work student and their practice teacher is crucial to learning, and that a negative working relationship may block the learning cycle on placement. On receipt of ethical approval, a cross sectional survey was distributed to 124 MSW and BSW social work students from two Irish Universities. The aims of this research were to identify the learning activities that social work students found ‘most useful’ in developing the...

This paper explores the experiences of participation in the Australian Master’s Games. Drawing on preliminary research on the 2017 event, the paper documents and analyses the ways in which Master’s athletes define and understand their social and sporting identities. As well as addressing low physical activity engagement in older life through an ‘active ageing’ lens, training for and competing in the Master’s Games offers a key source of identity-making among participants that shapes their social...

We begin the introductory chapter by reviewing the current state of knowledge about care in social work. The historical and current concerns about the dangers of paternalistic and colonialist forms of care in social work are presented. This involves engaging with the critique that the contemporary discussions about care reflect a Western bias that ignores Indigenous and inter-cultural framings of care. We also interrogate the gender dimensions of care, moving away from essentialist views that po...

This research aims to understand the life trajectory of becoming and being a Masters Games athlete and explores how competitive sports participation can be a context for empowering older adults. To do this, physical activity engagement in later life is viewed through an ‘active ageing’ lens, focusing on the enabling factors for mature-age competitive sports participation rather than the deficit-based approach which dominates existing research and policy. Athletes competing in the 2017 Australian...
