Relational social work and the Virus. Teachings from Covid-19 pandemic crisis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The pandemic crisis caused by Covid-19 had a strong impact on welfare organizations, social workers’ professional commitment, services’ users and carers conditions. With this paper I propose a theoretical reflection on lessons offered from Covid-19 pandemic. This unexpected crisis challenges welfare organizations and, at the same time, offered to social workers, managers and policy makers important learning opportunities, as to be more sensitive and respectful of their own and other’s vulnerabilities. Today more than ever, it is necessary to concentrate on «human».
