Social Work Conversations
About This Show
From the University of Kentucky College of Social Work
Hosted by Dr. Blake Jones
Produced by Jason Johnston
Here we explore the intersection of social work research, practice and education. Our goal is to showcase once a month the amazing people associated with our college and give our listeners practical tools they can use to change the world.
Each month we have a conversation with a social work practitioner, researcher, educator or speaker to learn more about their life and work. This podcast is intended to be instructive and helpful as we explore social issues and challenges faced by the modern day social worker.
