Organisation profile

The research stream in social work and social care is directly supportive of the School and CRIPACC’s work on well-being and health-related issues.

The research stream is led by Professor Brian Littlechild, and supported by Professor Shula Ramon.

There are currently four major projects, with number of smaller ones, and we have PhD candidates working on, or planning for, issues concerning patients with Personality Disorder, stress for social workers in mental health work, the needs of young people in Nigeria who have been orphaned because of AIDS, drug misuse amongst migrant across the EU states, and use of Community Treatment Orders for patients with mental health problems.
