Abstract

Using a case study approach, this book examined the contribution of social work to student wellbeing. By examining how one Victorian Catholic primary school collaborated with Schools of Social Work, the school was able to focus on student wellbeing and health promotion. Analysis of the case study indicated that successful cross discipline collaboration is dependent on a number of factors: commitment to cross disciplinary collaboration, clear identification and articulation of the expert skills and knowledge that each discipline brings to student wellbeing initiative, and effective negotiate of the contribution of each discipline's expert skills and knowledge. When these factors are successfully embedded into the School's formal and professional arrangements, then student wellbeing programs are more effective. This book is a helpful guide for those who want to build successful School- Social work partnerships.
