Social work, mental health inequalities, and the sociological imagination Thumbnail


Robert Lomax
Senior Lecturer in Social Work


The poster presentation discusses the background to my current doctoral research, how I have taken my inspiration from the work of C. Wright-Mills, and presents the early findings from data analysis. The presentation discusses the connection between my research and two of the key themes of the conference. The research explores the impact of social workers’ practice (Theme 3) through its exploration of their accounts of engaging with service users and colleagues. Social work history and identity as a profession (Theme 4) is reflected in one of the central areas of investigation: how social workers construct their professional identity through multi-disciplinary working, and in doing so, contribute their specialist knowledge and expertise relating to inequalities and oppression.
