Biography

Following a first degree in Biology and some work as a researcher in that field, I have worked in the field of Social Work since the beginning of the 1980s. This has included residential work, field social work, management and training/education both within an agency setting and the university. I have been working with Social Work qualifying students since 1989, and have maintained contact with Practice Education throughout my career and until changes in the post qualifying framework I was course leader for the Practice Teachers Award. I also maintain contact with practice through my work as a Family Fund Adviser. I am undertaking research for a Professional doctorate in Social Work under the title of "What is it like to be a sibling of a child with a disability". I have also had some involvement via BASW in the development of the Winterbourne View concordat. 

Teaching Responsibilities

I am currently level 4 lead for the BSC Social Work. I am the school link for the Inter-professional learning placement in level 5 of the BSc. I am the unit lead for the ‘Social Work theory and context’ unit of the MSc Social Work.

Research

My research interest is within the field of disability. This is currently using photo-elicitation with siblings to gain an understanding of the impacts for them of having a sibling with a disability.
