Summer University in Social WorkJuly 2 to 12, 2019
Social Care and Wellbeing of Vulnerable Populations
There is a demand for resources and services to be in place, to meet the health needs of the vulnerable population with special focus on women, children, senior citizens and differently abled. Involvement of the Government in social care varies across the nations, and this is to be debated and intervened, based on the evidences.
The practices need to be compared between the various public-private ownership models in social care. Response of the social work profession as a major stakeholder is critical in the situation where neoliberal ideas and withdrawal of state, fully or partly, from the social care is a trend, especially in developing and underdeveloped countries.
Social Work education institutions are also involved in social care focusing on wellbeing concept, through the extension activities which also provide opportunities for the social work trainees to get practice learning.
It will be interesting to understand country specific, sector specific, institutional specific strategies adopted in education, research and practice in ensuring wellbeing of the citizens.
The proposed Summer University will be having seminars for the orientation of the theme with regard to the policies, legislations, services, training and research practices.
