CFPs: Special Section: ‘Social Work and Covid-19’

 

Greenwich Social Work Review is a biannual peer-reviewed journal for students, practitioners and academics in the field of social work to share their research, practice experiences and varied perspectives. The journal addresses all areas of social work, with emphasis on papers that focus on key global challenges, and publishes research/original papers, reflection pieces and case studies.

Since the first cases of Covid-19, societies have been facing tremendous challenges. The quarantine measures and social isolation, the exercise of social distancing, disrupted school life, fear of death, the need to make use of technology – new and old – to maintain employment and/or social life, the loss of employment for many, financial instability and uncertainty, and the death of loved ones without the option to be with them, are only a few of the areas that are concerning in light of this pandemic. This special section invites papers that explore the ways in which the current pandemic has been influencing social life, from a social work perspective. This section invites empirical and non-empirical papers.

Papers may include but are not limited to the following themes:

 

  • Family life and Covid-19
  • Family breakdown and Covid-19
  • Social work with children during Covid-19
  • Community engagement and cohesion
  • Vulnerability and Covid-19
  • Social work practice and the impact of Covid-19
  • The elderly and the changing social needs
  • Mental health challenges during Covid-19
  • Covid-19, multiple losses and grief during lockdown
