Presenter: Iris Barten, AMHSW

Iris (pronounced as Irris as in irresistible) is an Accredited Mental health social worker since 2015, having practiced social work since completing her degree at Curtin in 2004. Her clinical work, facilitation, presentations focus on front line clinicians seeking to sustain and develop excellence in continuing their role. Using her own experience as a clinician in health settings (tertiary, acute, geriatric, paediatric, community) her skills motivate, enthuse and influence the next generation of social workers. She has presented to various audiences both in WA and interstate. Feedback on her presentations have included; ‘lively, fun, informative, inclusive and interactive’.

Her ability to think outside of the square has seen her invited to be part of a number of new initiatives; from the Federal Government ‘Fear of Cancer Recurrence’ working group, a funded delegate invited to attend the ExCel in Social work Course Philadelphia USA, and sought to be one of the founding members of the Cancer Council WA faculty in presenting Communication Workshops from 2015 to today. She has been the WA representative for the Oncology Social Work Association successfully coordinating two international conferences in 2011 and 2018. She has continued to run profitable private practice focusing on the impact of chronic illness, grief and loss, palliation and bereavement in families. Her knowledge in the area has seen her dedicate a greater amount of time to the provision of clinical supervision to others, both individuals and organisations whom are involved with front line health service provision. She currently combines her private work with hospital social work.
