Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
Social work’s traditional location between mainstream and marginalized society, its commitment to serving oppressed people, and its professional mandate to promote a more just social order, position it to be a positive force for transformative change. The Global Partnership for Transformative Social Work believes that this requires new approaches to scholarship, education, practice and inquiry.
The GPTSW is a world-wide, non-affiliated community of social work educators, researchers, theoreticians and practitioners interested in exploring existing and potential expressions and applications of what might loosely be called postmodern thought - in particular the confluence of perspectives termed 'social construction'. The GPTSW seeks to generate new forms of inclusive dialogue and to challenge those discourses that claim privileged knowing or require the suppression of alternative viewpoints.
