Intersectionality: Race, Gender and Other Aspects of Identity in Social Work with Young People

This is a synopsis of Community Care Inform’s guide to initial meetings with young people: an intersectional and systemic approach.

Intersectionality is a helpful lens in highlighting some considerations that can broaden a practitioner’s thinking when meeting a young person for the first time, support confidence and help the practitioner to use this important moment to establish a trusting relationship.

The guide also works through an in-depth case study following a young person who appears not to want to engage with their social worker, and how the social worker approaches and manages an initial meeting.
