The South Australian Joint Agency Social Work Symposium 2017 "Social Work Futures" will bring thought leaders and challengers from across the practitioner spectrum together to discuss four key elements of shaping change for the future of social work. Be part of the conversation about the future of human rights in social care, supervision models, reclaiming professional judgement and ethical deliberation. Building a sustainable and accountable professional practice for the future begins with a refocus on how, not just what we do, in social work practice.

Social Work Futures: SA Joint Agency Symposium sponsored by

The Program
