Dr. Toba Kerson and Dr. Judith McCoyd were recent guests on University of Buffalo School of Social Work podcast series and spoke on “In Response to Need: An Analysis of Social Work Roles Over Time”. Dr. Laura Lewis, University of Buffalo School of Social Work Director of Field Education, conducted the interview. In this episode, based on a research article published in the journal Social Work in 2013, Drs. Toba Kerson and Judith McCoyd discuss their latest work re-examining interviews conducted in 1976 with the pioneers of health-related social work. They compare those with themes they identified with current workers in the healthcare field and describe how the distinctive way that social workers respond to needs remains consistent with our core values and skill set. The podcast episode can be accessed at http://www.insocialwork.org/episode.asp?ep=154.
