EP 113: Student Initiated Confrontations' Impact on Social Work

Conversation with Thalia Anderen, MSW, RCSW, LCSW, PhD

Social Work Instructor Dr. Thalia Anderen, MSW, RCSW, LCSW, and Social Work Talks Podcast Host Lorrie Appleton, LCSW, dive into the concerning trend of student-initiated confrontations (SIC) in universities. With over 20 years of experience as a therapist, Anderen's research sheds light on the impact of these behaviors on both educators and the field of social work. These confrontations in universities are often exacerbated by a lack of guidance and support by institutional administration, as well as inadequate training with respect to SIC and classroom management. Discover how universities can better support professors and enlighten students on how their in-class behaviors can shape their professional future.
