WORLD SOCIAL WORK DAY 2018 EVENT IN JAPAN

On March 3rd (Sat) 2018, somewhat earlier than the international community, the Japanese Federation of Social Workers (JFSW) co-hosted a World Social Work Day event with the Japanese Association for the Study of International Social Work at the Japan Women’s University. The latter organization was established last year on a volunteer basis to introduce young practitioners, students and researchers of international social work with IFSW activities in collaboration with JFSW. This year’s event contained the following.

First, IFSW Asia Pacific Regional President Mariko Kimura reported on the Asia Pacific Joint Regional Social Work Conference held in September 2017 in Shenzhen. Next, Mr. Tamaki Takada presented on a workshop on child labor co-hosted by JFSW and the Social Workers’ Association Nepal in November 2017 in Nepal. Child labor issues have intensified in Nepal since the earthquake in 2015.

The following lecture was delivered by Mr. Amran Jamil, Executive Director of the Rotary Family Service Center in Singapore who spoke about multiethnic and multicultural family social work and the training as well as the mission of agency professionals. Participants were especially moved when he explained the ability of cross-cultural understanding and mentioned about the importance of recognizing commonalities not just differences.
Altogether 40 people attended the event which served as a good opportunity to gain stimuli and insight to the Japanese practice field where multicultural exposure is on the rise. (Mariko Kimura, IFSW Asia Pacific Regional President, IFSW Vice President)
