Join Mim and Lis, as well as our producer Justin, as they listen to a social worker share her story of working in a bushfire evacuation centre. Hear the way social work practice can support communities in the midst of a crisis, and the surprising way it can impact the people as they process these traumatic events. Our team talks more about the unexpected moments you encounter while working with individuals, and Justin shares more of his own experiences working in bushfire-effected communities.
