Start of Debate

Good Evening Everyone… & A Warm Welcome to our Expert Panel members, Tweeteraties & Twitter Ambassadors & our Wonderful Tweeps… #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Prof Eileen Munro recommended that Govt place a statutory duty on LAs & their partners to ensure provision for #EarlyIntervention #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Prevention & early intervention form the cornerstone of more personalised services for adults, mental health & older people. #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

In spite of the importance, early intervention is 1 of the most used, overused, misused & misunderstood notions in #SocialWork & #SocialCare

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Therefore, our 1st question is: What is #EarlyIntervention? #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Is early intervention just a fallacy? How can early intervention be defined in conceptual and functional terms? #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Please Do not forget to use the hashtag #SWSCMEDIA for your tweets… Thank You… #SWSCmedia

sunbubbles28Dara K. Fulton

@SWSCmedia I think its important to first identify the problem of the client to determine the type of intervention that’s needed #SWSCmedia

ProfSocialWorkFrom The Gut

@SWSCmedia Putting support in place before the crisis occurs #swscmedia

tashawhitstablenatasha

@sunbubbles28 @swscmedia but in order to *have* a client means we may have missed early window? #SWSCmedia

TheresaunoTheresa Gallacher

@SWSCmedia Providin ppl wiv access 2 approp care/facilites/services so can maintain dignity n function optimally in own homes? #swscmedia

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

Strengths based community model rather than individual pathology model #swscmedia

444blackcatbc

#swscmedia in MH it has worked well n prevented lifetimes in the system for some with psychosis

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Yes, strengths based..and identify correct point of intervention #swscmedia

BASW_UKBASW

@SWSCmedia Yes I would certainly agree with that and it is also something that can be a bit of a political football. @swscmedia#

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

Earlier #bonklesoul said we have moved on from community development model I haven’t – stuck in the 70s. What have we moved to? #swscmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Yes, Indian SWers much better at this RT @Bincy_Wilson: SWers in India are more into community care and advocacy #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@njsmyth Excellent makes it more interesting & exciting…🙂

DailyPlanUKCraig McCormick

#SWSCmedia Please take a few minutes to read my next tweet which will come via twitlonger. This is my take on #EarlyIntervention

444blackcatbc

#swscmedia an issue is that EI too often is tackling the symptoms not the causes if society remains inequitable it will always b required

DailyPlanUKCraig McCormick

#SWSCmedia As a #depression sufferer, I feel that #EarlyIntervention is very late in coming. I first started (cont) http://tl.gd/eivs3o

sunbubbles28Dara K. Fulton

@SWSCmedia Finding necessary resources for client to help with their problem. Having a concise background of client helps too #SWSCmedia

ProfSocialWorkFrom The Gut

@444blackcat I really agree with this point & would take it a step further namely preventing being sucked into the system #swscmedia

DailyPlanUKCraig McCormick

#SWSCmedia Early Intervention would have made a huge difference to my life, I feel. I think it is a must, going forward.

sunbubbles28Dara K. Fulton

I have to agree with @BASW_UK sadly politics can interfere with intervention. advocacy comes into play @SWSCmedia #swscmedia

NickBerbiersNick Berbiers

Munro actually sounds nearer to what we were doing 70’s / 80’s than what we have done since #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@444blackcat Excellent point… How will you define early intervention then?

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

I want to thank @dailyplanuk for their story – my husband too has had depression for the last 5 years so have some notion #swscmedia

TheresaunoTheresa Gallacher

@DailyPlanUK Absolutely! Late intervention is both ineffective and expensive. #swscmedia

HennyHeawoodHenny Heawood

@NickBerbiers Constant tension between community based universal v focussed EI. It was ever so.#SWSCMEDIA

sunbubbles28Dara K. Fulton

I agree I notice when it comes to mental health EI is slow&coming and many ppl dont get the care needed rite away @DailyPlanUK #SWSCmedia

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

Agree @NickBerbiers but community workers mostly disappeared – community social work gone – so what is the 2011 version? #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Early intervention implies the existence of threshold distinguishing early from a late inervention. What is the metric/criteria? #SWSCmedia

sunbubbles28Dara K. Fulton

in my opinion,more needs to be done financially by our gov’t to support SW and our efforts in tackling EI&other issues @SWSCmedia #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Everyone Please use the hashtag #SWSCMEDIA thank you…

444blackcatbc

@swscot #swscmedia yes we joke at each new policy how long before we go back to the one from 10yrs ago now maybe from 5yrs ago constant

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

@444blackcat @swscot If we go back 20 years we might go forward – Thatcher happened – cycles #swscmedia

EmpowerDerbyEmpower LD Derby

@ProfSocialWork @jaxrafferty so true. Speaking as someone with MH probs, many people are scared of us! #swscmedia

NickBerbiersNick Berbiers

@EmpowerDerby @ProfSocialWork @jaxrafferty Not here we are not! Glad you joined us, and hope you will continue to. #swscmedia

@DorleeM No problem you’re always welcome… question is what is early intervention? what is criteria separating early & later? #SWSCmedia

TheresaunoTheresa Gallacher

@SWSCmedia Providin ppl wiv access 2 approp care/facilites/services so can maintain dignity n function optimally in own homes? #swscmedia

TheresaunoTheresa Gallacher

@DailyPlanUK Absolutely! Late intervention is both ineffective and expensive #swscmedia.

Bincy_WilsonBincy Wilson

EI in case of combating trafficking of women & girls needs strong political will with the right motive #SWSCMedia

BASW_UKBASW

@DailyPlanUK @Ermintrude2 But have we now become so constrained because of the bureaucratic unwieldy structures we have created? #swscmedia

Ermintrude2Moo

@BASW_UK yes, in a word @dailyplanuk#swscmedia

JimmySWJimmy Young

Mostly see EI in wifes Headstart program. But it lacks many things. $, follow through, etc. Otherwise it’s a great start/benefit #swscmedia

444blackcatbc

#swscmedia Early intervention needs to start prospective parents quite often too late by time child is at school issues already embedded

tashawhitstablenatasha

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@444blackcat Great Point… How about Adult Services & MH… Govt seems to be ignoring those services… What is diff btwn early & late?

tashawhitstablenatasha

@444blackcat hence idea of community schools partnered with children centres #SWSCmedia

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

Interested to know the take over the pond @njsmyth and others – community work still part of social work I understand? #swscmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

@jaxrafferty I think it’s “coming back” many students interested in it #swscmedia

NickBerbiersNick Berbiers

@SWSCmedia I believe that the metric can only be determined via outcome measures – the other way around as it were #SWSCmedia

AmandaClement1Mandy Clement

@SWSCmedia #swscmedia my take is EI is targeting whole population & opting groups out & LI is more specific once probs/issues are evident

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Maybe in High School? RT @DorleeM: would EI = offering parenting classes before they are offiicially required/needed? #swscmedia

DorleeMDorlee M

@BASW_UK aside from that program, engaging in mindfulness meditation can increase empathy #SWSCmedia

BASW_UKBASW

@SWSCmedia I think the Spirit Level has so much to offer here re:benefits of a more equitable society. #swscmedia

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

@AmandaClement1 @SWSCmedia Possibly a pride issue rather than moral or denial? #swscmedia

tashawhitstablenatasha

@Ermintrude2 @swscmedia @444blackcat with MH issues must also be with self presentation or enforced presentation of SU?

JimmySWJimmy Young

@444blackcat EI in school needs more of a community care component w/ SW providing in home services. In my opinion. #swscmedia

ProfSocialWorkFrom The Gut

@Ermintrude2 @SWSCmedia @444blackcat Yes & as @basw_uk mentioned it is political who and when funding is given #swscmedia what happens to EI

AmandaClement1Mandy Clement

@Ermintrude2 @SWSCmedia @444blackcat I agree used to work as crisis sup worker in MH and lack of funds big issue=more crisis #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Early intervention may be relative to context, what R some of the more significant and relevant contexts for early intervention? #SWSCmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

SWers doing community work here are often working outside traditional human svcs & working in orgs focusing on this work #swscmedia

DorleeMDorlee M

#SWSCmedia when worked in women’s health clinic, pregnant teens very receptive to receiving in home free nursing visits – this suggests poss

444blackcatbc

@tashawhitstable #swscmedia agree it would be hard but what we have now is intervening when family in crisis often with negative outcomes

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

Social work students in England seeking statutory work placements, worried they won’t get jobs if they do community focused ones #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

No doubt funding is essential, but research shows increase funding not always increase SU satisfaction. What R the other metrics? #SWSCmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

agree completely RT @Theresauno: Needs rigorous methodologies to evaluate outcomes n research evidence #swscmedia

TheresaunoTheresa Gallacher

Need 2 no desired outcomes n if realistically achievable! Needs rigorous methodologies to evaluate outcomes n research evidence #swscmedia

NickBerbiersNick Berbiers

Women’s Aid would I believe righly claim significant efficacy of EI in their work #SWSCmedia

Bincy_WilsonBincy Wilson

SWers in India are more into community care and advocacy #SWSCMedia

DorleeMDorlee M

#SWSCmedia teaching teens some basic parenting skills – what to do when child doesn’t listen, how not to resort to hitting etc, safety rules

Ermintrude2Moo

@HennyHeawood Adults lower priority I suspect. Less emotive. #swscmedia

AmandaClement1Mandy Clement

@Ermintrude2 means more campaigning by services to try to get a share of the pot to implement EI and some will lose out😦 #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

What are some of the critical success factors for ensuring Early Intervention across services? #SWSCmedia What R essential elements for EI?

BASW_UKBASW

@SWSCmedia Surely has to also be about how resources distributed. Brave and visionary leadership. Unwavering. #swscmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Here 2, but education is not the same as job training RT @jaxrafferty: Employers here criticise educators for not teaching to job #swscmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Yes, Indian SWers much better at this RT @Bincy_Wilson: SWers in India are more into community care and advocacy #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@njsmyth Excellent Question…

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Behavioural Economic Studies show that ppl assume wealth inequality correlates w/ ability hence wealthy deserve to be wealthy #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

ppl correlate negative health outcomes w/ poverty. This implies class divide in + outcomes, at least at a perceptual level. #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

So, how can we overcome class issue & class divide in service allocation and outcomes? #swscmedia

sunbubbles28Dara K. Fulton

I agree, I think empathy can be taught but a person must be willing to learn this…keeping an open mind&heart. @BASW_UK @DorleeM #swscmedia

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

RT @njsmyth: How do we disentangle class from EI so it’s not just social control? #swscmediaExcellent but big question

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

VERY important RT @Theresauno: @SWSCmedia Safeguarding human rights and ensuring that services are personalised? #swscmedia

444blackcatbc

@ProfSocialWork GP not keen giving room for free barriers to funding we r employed by secondary care not primary got v political #swscmedia

ProfSocialWorkFrom The Gut

@444blackcat Yes, sounds it and also complicated. In those cases diff to negotiate #swscmedia how to by pass it if at all possible?

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@njsmyth Excellent point… Precisely. How can that be challenged in an effective manner in policy & practice? #swscmedia

BASW_UKBASW

@SWSCmedia I think the Spirit Level has so much to offer here re:benefits of a more equitable society. #swscmedia

TheresaunoTheresa Gallacher

@@SWSCmedia There is actual empirical evidence to support the +ve correlation between the two along wiv offendin/poor GCSEs etc😦 #swscmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Safeguarding human rights is why we (@UBSSW) combine trauma focus with human rights #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@DailyPlanUK Yes, That does not negate the finding… Research indication is that poor suffer double jeopardy… #SWSCmedia

JimmySWJimmy Young

RT @AmandaClement1: in rural areas, which are often overlooked, soc media would b cost effective EI 2 lessen effects of isolation #swscmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Yes, support groups..@jaxrafferty in rural areas social media would be a cost effective EI to lessen effects of isolation #swscmedia

ProfJScourfieldJonathan Scourfield

#swscmedia we can’t overcome class issue cos social problems concentrate in poverty. EI is about taking social inequality seriously.

@TheresaunoTheresa Gallacher

@ProfJScourfield Well said! Cannot deal with it until we accept it – there is a correlation! #swscmedia

ProfJScourfieldJonathan Scourfield

#swscmedia I would love to join in properly but my own children need some early intervention.

ProfJScourfieldJonathan Scourfield

This EI paper is relevant (for those who can access Brit J Soc Wk): http://bjsw.oxfordjournals.org/content/38/8/1536.short

ProfJScourfieldJonathan Scourfield

#swscmedia some on Left are suspicious of EI cos if it targets working class (esp. parent training). I think they are more wrong than right.

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

Social community planning can be +itive Huge new developments in Swindon built mix of private/social housing of all sizes #swscmedia

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

Community planning needs all professional + community on board – not just socialwork issue #swscmedia

JimmySWJimmy Young

@BASW_UK I was wondering when someone would bring in the structuralism argument😀 #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

R we not dealing with a perverse & inverted view of things that increasingly tilt the balance in favour of the wealthy? & if yes #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

In a poor economic climate combined w/ budget cuts how can we ensure early intervention?

ProfSocialWorkFrom The Gut

We need to make society care more abt these problems so that we can prioritise funding #swscmedia but diff as live in individualist culture

TriXonlinePhill Phill Barnett

@swscmedia we can’t #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@TriXonlinePhill @mgoat73 but we must… It is our civic & socio-political duty not to mention human & humane responsibility… #SWSCmedia

@SWSCmedia I agree we must advocate for it, but funding priorities don’t always allow for action#swscmedia

TriXonlinePhill Phill Barnett

I understand fully the value but I am a realist, these discussions are just that @swscmedia #swscmedia at least for the next decade

ProfSocialWorkFrom The Gut

@TriXonlinePhill u demonstrate my point exactly about the individualist culture #swscmediaC my last tweet & #changeyourmindset to positve

Mate my middle name is positive, lets just not over simplify this@profsocialwork

444blackcatbc

@njsmyth #swscmedia yes way its going all sw will be crisis intervention not early

JimmySWJimmy Young

So many great comments! Exactly why I teach my SW students to think differently about social media & how to use it in SW. #swscmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

Yes, a problem–rural ctrs can provide this RT @Ermintrude2: @swscot Thats my concern I cant think of users with internet access #swscmedia

Rural areas and even in large cities London, NY, etc. deprivation is outrageous… How can we develop a culture of EI? #SWSCmedia

#SWSCmedia More community ties and links, better referrals from GPs and police and support groups. Listening and taking seriosly to start.

swscotswscot

@SWSCmedia A new government & social system?? #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@swscot Unfortunately, statistics indicate not a Q of which Govt, as the gap between haves & have-nots has increased constantly #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

Given the current practice realities and challenges what are the future prospects for early intervention? #SWSCmedia

jaxraffertyJackie Rafferty

@TriXonlinePhill @swscmedia Cuts and chaos provide opportunities – small maybe but potential for developments #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@jaxrafferty @TriXonlinePhill Excellent point… But we must ensure not to lose our social and moral compass… #SWSCmedia

@SWSCmedia I agree we must advocate for it, but funding priorities don’t always allow for action #swscmedia

JimmySWJimmy Young

Agreed!!! RT @njsmyth: This discussion COULD influence our actions, which could influence others, which could influence policy #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@JimmySW @njsmyth But the trickle down prosperity theory of Bernanke has not failed terribly. Don’t we need a change of paradigm? #SWSCmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@mgoat73 Although funding is essential, perception of service improvement not +correlated w/ funding. What else can/shld be done? #swscmedia

SWSCmediaSWSCmedia

@JimmySW We agree w/ trickle outward. But, Q is what will allow for this change to take roots? which direction should it take? #SWSCmedia

ProfSocialWorkFrom The Gut

society needs to address society problems with societal solutions are else we will con to scapegoat the most vul & marginalised #swscmedia

@sunbubbles28 Dara K. Fulton

@ProfSocialWork Agree! Somethings shouldn’t take a decision to make. A societal issue, probs are evident= funding is necessary. #SWSCmedia

njsmythNancy J. Smyth

What if we started to crowdsource fund our EI efforts? #swscmedia

V hard 2 assess E.I benefits as outcome wiivout E/I is unknown!long term benefits r unknown once intervention withdrawn.#research #swscmedia

Discussion

One thought on “Debate Summary for Early Intervention: Concept, Context, Realities and Prospects… (6 December 2011)

  1. It was wonderful to be part of a debate with colleagues from “across the pond.” I never thought to mention this during the debate, but our School-sponsored podcast series (called “Living Proof”) has some podcasts that are relevant to this topic if anyone is interested. Many of our faculty (at our university, UB, as well as at other schools of social work) work these podcasts into their classes.

    Episode 26 – Dr. Jeffrey Jenson: Using Principles of Prevention Science to Promote Healthy Youth Development: The Denver Youth Empowerment Projects: http://www.socialwork.buffalo.edu/podcast/episode.asp?ep=26

    Episode 30 – Dr. Paul Smokowski: Acculturation and Adjustment in Latino Adolescents: How Cultural Risk Factors and Assets Influence Adolescent Mental Health http://www.socialwork.buffalo.edu/podcast/episode.asp?ep=30\

    Episode 54 – Joyce James, LMSW-AP and Carolyne Rodriguez, MSW: Addressing Disproportionality: Promising Practice Innovations http://www.socialwork.buffalo.edu/podcast/episode.asp?ep=54
