Abstract or Summary

The profession of social work and the media has a well established tension with far reaching implications for social workers, the people they serve and the public perception of issues affecting vulnerable people. Resolving this conflict is challenging; social workers and journalists each have motivations, accountabilities and structural issues that lead to the inaccurate media portrayal of social work related stories. This research focuses on using interprofessional education to better manage these barriers, producing socially responsive journalists, media savvy social workers and a collaborative approach towards social justice and human rights.
