The founding Associate Professor and Head of Social Work at the University of the Sunshine Coast will give a public lecture and launch her new book at USC on Tuesday 19 August.

Associate Professor Christine Morley’s book, ‘Practising Critical Reflection to Develop Emancipatory Change: Challenging the Legal Response to Sexual Assault’, will be launched by the President of the Australian Association of Social Workers, Professor Karen Healy.

Dr Morley’s lecture will present the key findings in her book published by Ashgate.

“Many social workers report feeling powerless about their capacities to make a difference because of the restrictive contexts that determine the nature and parameters of their work,” she said.

“The legal system provides a perfect example of this type of context and my book explores the work of practitioners engaged in supporting victims/survivors of sexual assault.

“This research enables practitioners to find hope and practical strategies to work towards change.”

The public lecture will be held from 10-11am in Lecture Theatre 7 followed by the book launch from 11am to noon at the USC Co-op Bookshop.

Dr Morley is a leader in the development of critical approaches to social work and has published more than 40 papers.
