Distinguished Oxford University professor reflects on social work’s history on March 26

Mar 20 2015

Ann Buchanan, PhD, a distinguished leader and emeritus professor of social work and senior research associate in the Department of Social Policy and Intervention at Oxford University, England, will discuss the evolving history of social work as this year’s speaker for the Herman D. Stein Lecture in International Social Welfare at the Mandel School on March 26.

Hear Dr. Buchanan on Cleveland’s National Public Radio station discussing “The Evolving Profession of Social Work” with fellow guests Dr. Terry Hokenstad of the Mandel School; Dorothy Martindale, BSSW, LSW, of the NASW Ohio Chapter; and Gay Baker, MSS, LISW-S, of MetroHealth Hospital.

Buchanan’s talk, “Recurring Themes in the History of Social Work,” is a prelude to the centennial celebration of the Mandel School’s 100th anniversary (1915-2015). The free and public event begins at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 26, in the Mandel Community Studies Center, 11402 Bellflower Rd., on the Case Western Reserve campus in Cleveland. A reception follows the talk. Reservations are required by phone (216.368.0266) or email (mandelschool@case.edu). By attending the lecture, social workers can earn 1.5 continuing education units (CEU). The CEU request must be made at the time of the reservation. CEU costs are $10 for alumni and $25 for non-alumni.

annbuchananphotoOn the day before the talk, she will give a special colloquium for Mandel School students, “Risk and Protective Factors in Family Relationships,” at 12:50 – 1:50 p.m. on March 25 at the Mandel Center (1 PD hour; includes a boxed lunch for those who RSVP to MandelSchool@case.edu or 216.368.0266).

Before joining the Oxford faculty, Buchanan spent a decade working as a child psychiatric social worker in an inner-city area. Her experiences have led to research that promotes the well-being of children at risk for social exclusion.

Buchanan has received invitations to share her knowledge about children and their welfare from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, State University of St. Petersburg (Russia), David Hume Institute in Edinburgh and the Scottish government, University of Putra Malaysia, University of Thrace in Greece, Erasmus University in La Hague and elsewhere.

The annual Herman D. Stein lecture honors the man who served as Mandel School dean from 1964-1968. Stein was considered a luminary in the social work profession and an advocate for inspiring discussions on community, compassion and democracy around the globe.

 


Inside Business Story about Encore Careers Quotes Terry Hokenstad

Mar 8 2015

Inside Business Jan Feb 15Dr. Terry Hokenstad is quoted in “Encore Performance,” an article about encore careers for post-retirement adults in the January/February 2015 issue of Inside Business Magazine.

“There’s a changing perspective of what retirement means across the board,” he commented. “This encore movement is a component of this whole evolution in our society and present time, a general sort of trend of redefining retirement in the 21st century. Encore is really a programmatic way of allowing seniors to be both active and contributing to society.”
