Annual Tri-City Social Work Exchange

OCTOBER 28, 2021

The Annual Tri-City Social Work Exchange between the cities of Birmingham, Chicago, and Hamburg concluded earlier this month. This year’s theme focused on the German approach known as Social Space Orientation, as an exploration of concepts from community capacity building, social work community practice, urban planning, public health, multisystemic therapy, and a strengths-based model. During the week-long exchange, participants learned about social space orientation, discussed and shared best practices and had the opportunity to network.

Hosted by the Hamburg State Ministry of Labour, Social, Family Affairs and Integration (BASFI) and in partnership with Chicago Sister Cities International and the International Social Worker Exchange Partnership, the Birmingham City Council Adult Social Care, and the Birmingham Children’s Trust.
