Episode 02 (Part 2) – Community Development & Research with Professor Jim Ife.


Hey Friends,

Here’s Part 2 of my conversation with Professor Jim Ife of Western Sydney University.

If you haven’t already… make sure you go and listen to Part 1 of Episode 2 so that you’re up to speed.

Here you will hear Jim paint a picture of how social work research might better serve our communities, our social work practice, and ultimately the world.

Once again, thanks for listening!
