Call for Abstracts - Late Submissions will be considered

The Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) welcomes abstracts for the forthcoming AASW 2020 Symposium.

To be held on Friday 6 November 2020, the symposium was originally planned to be a face to face event in the NT Darwin but due to the unforeseen disruptions of COVID-19 the symposium will now move to an online format.

The theme for the AASW 2020 Symposium is “Promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Work”.

The symposium will bring together a wide range of professionals, key industry groups, and stakeholders across the health and human services to discuss and promote thoughts on social work practice and ideas that shape Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander social work culture, research and teaching, together with sharing key challenges and highlights facing our sector.

We are pleased to announce that abstracts are now open.

Abstracts are invited from AASW members, social work practitioners, educators, researchers, and other professionals working in relevant fields of practice. We are especially interested in hearing from Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander Social Workers and other professionals.

Themes streams that will be included in the Symposium program are described below and we invite abstracts in response to these issues, addressing the following.

  1. Working with individuals, groups and communities
  2. Indigenous knowledge in research and teaching
  3. Decolonisation in action: Policy and advocacy
