02/21/17 – Developing a Human Rights Approach to Strengthen Practice: Implications for Medicine, Public Health & Social Work

United Nations

In this lecture, Jane McPherson, assistant professor at University of Georgia, explained how human rights as dictated by the United Nations could impact social work both in the U.S. and around the world.

In the U.S. her work focuses on asylum seekers and immigrants; globally, she creates tools to investigate and promote rights-based practice. An arts activist, McPherson engaged students and community members in One Million Bones, a national anti-genocide project, to lay 1,000,000 handmade bones on the National Mall in 2013. She is a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience in the field.
