Abstract

Gapmending strategies: Impact on social workers occupational practice

Gap-mending is a concept, which is used to create reflection and analysis of gaps that exist between different actors in social work. The gaps can be explicit or implicit distinctions between individuals, groups or organisations in Social Work. The gap-mending concept is not a specific model or method, but should be seen as an analytical approach or strategy that can be used in contexts where people meet in common efforts to resolve problems and prevent gaps. Since 2005, the School of Social Work at Lund University has given a social work course whiuch is based on the Gap-mending concept. On the course social work students and people from different service user organisations study together. The course is titled the Mobilising course. Between 2005 and 2016 the Mobilisation course has been given 20 times.
