The challenges, triumphs and learning from participating in an Australian social work students' activist group
O’Connor, David John, Thomas, Ezra, White, Kaila, & Morley, Christine (2016) The challenges, triumphs and learning from participating in an Australian social work students' activist group. Critical and Radical Social Work, 4(2), pp. 289-299.
This article traces the emergence of a student activist group called the Social Work Action and Advocacy Network for Students at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia. The article exhibits three founding members' experiences of working collectively to achieve emancipatory goals: showcasing achievements; grappling with ethical tensions of working within a group; and demonstrating students' capacity to re-author the identity of social work in a way that positions activism as central.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
