Abstract

What does social work professional identity mean for social work educators? How can our own understanding help students to develop a sense of professional identity? This interactive workshop draws on the presenters’ research and teaching within the UK, and invites participants to share experience and ideas for helping students to develop their understanding of professionalism and professional identity. This will include an exploration of what professional identity means to participants themselves.
