- ItemOpen AccessGendered Practices in Child Protection: Shifting Mother Accountability and Father Invisibility in Situations of Domestic Violence(Cogitatio Press, 2018-10-04) Archer-Kuhn, Beth; de Villiers, StefanThis article reports on an exploratory, qualitative, multiple-methods study that included individual interviews and a focus group with child protection services (CPS) workers in a large city in Alberta, Canada. The findings illuminate current CPS worker practices in situations of domestic violence where inclusion and exclusion decisions are made for service provision, and the ways in which documents reflect these day-to-day practices; how service user descriptions are constructed and reconstructed, the social problem of domestic violence conceptualized, and the ways in which professional development training encourages critical thinking about existing practices to create new solutions for families experiencing domestic violence. Thematic analysis reveals three themes about CPS workers’ experience: 1) current practices reflect invisibility of men and accountability of women; 2) personal and professional shift in perspectives on who to work with, gender expectations, and how CPS are delivered; and 3) reflexive practice into potential intervention strategies and professional development training. The findings suggest specific recommendations for practice including the need to engage men in child welfare practice, shift perspective about service delivery with families experiencing domestic violence, and account for gender norms and practices in service delivery.

- ItemOpen AccessPortfolio: Research and Scholarship Leave, January 1 - June 30, 2014(2014-10-01) St. George, Sally; Wulff, DanUsing this portfolio format, we present some ideas that we believe are relevant to the way social work education is and will be organized and delivered at the Faculty of Social Work. These ideas were the focus of our six-month Research and Scholarship Leave. We believe that the ideas within this portfolio can be usefully applied to any level of post-secondary curriculum, from bachelor’s level through doctoral. Considered as resources, we hope the ideas and exercises herein can serve as material for experimentation and further conversation and dialogue within the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary. Our ideas expressed in this portfolio are evolving and can provide encouragement that we, in the Faculty and beyond, can reflect on our research, practices, and teaching initiatives to make the educational environment we offer even more nourishing.

- ItemOpen AccessUnderstanding the Policy Landscape Surrounding Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) in Canada’s Federal Prison System(SAGE Publishing, 2021-02-03) Driftmier, Peter; Shaw, JessicaMedical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) has been legal in Canada since 2016, and the implementation of MAiD for people who are incarcerated has raised ethical and procedural concerns. In this paper, we review the current Correctional Services Canada (CSC) guidelines on MAiD alongside a joint report by the Office of the Correctional Investigator (OCI) and the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) on aging and dying in prison. We echo concerns raised by the OCI and the CHRC about the limits of adequate end of life care (EOLC) currently provided to those in custody, and offer our analysis of the procedural guidelines for MAiD in prison, which we argue to be inadequate in support for patient-centered care and equality in access to health care.
