Challenges for social workers working with refugees in Australia in both offshore and onshore detention.

Presenter: Mark Isaacs

Mark is a writer, a researcher, a photographer and a community worker. His first two books, The Undesirables: Inside Nauru (Hardie Grant, 2014) and Nauru Burning (Hardie Grant, 2016), expose the harsh realities of Australia’s notorious offshore prisons. Mark’s third book, The Kabul Peace House (Hardie Grant, 2019) is about a community of peace activists in Afghanistan. Mark is president of PEN Sydney and is currently studying for a Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Technology, Sydney.

This AASW NSW Connect:ED webinar is part of a series helping Social Workers to connect with new ideas and reflect on their own practice. We focus on bringing everyday social workers to talk about their practice, ideas and experiences of social work.

Webinars are 30 minutes (including short Q&A) and where agreed with the presenter, will be recorded for those who cannot participate in real time.

Registrations are open to everyone nationally.

Date: Wednesday 21 April 2021

Time: 12noon (AEDT)

Location: Online. Zoom link provided on registration.
