Service User Involvement in UK Social Service Agencies and Social Work Education
Goossen, Carolyn; Austin, Michael J.
Journal of Social Work Education, v53 n1 p37-51 2017
Forming partnerships with service users became a requirement for social work education programs in the United Kingdom as of 2003, leading to the development of innovative approaches to social work education that involve service users as experts who are helping to teach the future generation of social workers. This article examines the perceptions of service user involvement and how it is implemented in the United Kingdom in the social service sector and the university setting, and concludes with implications for the United States.
