The Importance of Processing Stakeholder Emotions in Transition

The transition of a residential care service involves significant change at all levels of an organization and affects many different stakeholders, including the children, their families, the staff, and the board and management of the organization. As with any significant change, transition can result in a range of emotional reactions amongst those most impacted, such as fear, uncertainty, and worry. Unless these emotions are acknowledged and addressed, it is common for stakeholders to resist change, regardless of its overall merits.

Caring Systems: Maximising synergies between care reform and child protection system strengthening in Eastern and Southern Africa

Addressing care in a systemic way with linkages to the wider child protection system is essential as there are large numbers of children at risk of separation, unnecessarily separated or who are unsafe in their families or alternative care. Systemic and scaled change is needed to address the magnitude of this problem. Care reform is under-resourced and there is often resistance to change. A systems approach can unite stakeholders together to advocate for enhanced provision and ensure that limited resources are used effectively.

The Nascence of Social Work Education in Somalia: Challenges, Opportunities, and the Way Forward

From clan-based politics in the years leading to independence to clan-shaped legislature and clan-oriented cabinets in the civilian governments following independence, military dictatorship and malfeasance dominated 1970s and 1980s Somalia. Early in 1991, the country became swamped in a clan-based civil war that crumbled state structures and the public services they provided. The ensuing lawlessness increased monumentally, making violence and abuse against women, children, minorities, and the vulnerable among the society very rampant.
