Welcome

Welcome to the Centre for Systemic Social Work.


The Centre for Systemic Social Work (CfSSW) promotes systemic practice in social work settings across children’s services. Systemic practice offers a theory of change that is able to engage with the complexity and challenges faced by vulnerable families. This is where child protection and other high risk situations are a feature. The centre teaches systemic skills development programmes for practitioners, supervisors and leaders. Find out more.
