Bruce Yeates, the coordinator of the social work programme, presented a
paper entitled Social and Community Work Education and Practice at the
University of the South Pacific at the Fiji Association of Social Workers
Special General Meeting that was held on the 24 March 2007 @ JJ's On the
Park, Suva, Fiji.
Bruce stressed the need for social and community workers to be conscious
of the contexts in which social and community work practice and education
is located. He emphasized that events at the global, regional and national
levels directly impact individuals, families and communities at the local
level. This impact in turn affect the choice of social and community work
strategies and interventions at the local level, the organizational
structures that professionals work in and the social policies and
programmes that organizations plan and implement.
