We want to welcome you to the 3rd International Conference on Social Work. Social Work: the art of creating links, which will be held on 26, 27 and 28 October 2016 at the San Sebastian campus of the University of Deusto.

This project is born out of the enthusiasm of the team of lecturers at the Department of Social Work and Sociology of the University of Deusto. It is also driven by the aim to create and co-build a space for interaction and joint reflection that helps to enrich and enhance the relational dimension of Social Work at different levels.

We hope that the proposal we have developed will attract your interest, and we await you to continue to build proposals, methodologies, reflections and knowledge related to the Social Work discipline and profession.

The conference programme includes lectures, dialogues and roundtable discussions and will have the participation of some of our expert colleagues on the issue at hand, the strength of relational links. Furthermore, this meeting will acquire special meaning with your participation and your voice during the discussion time sessions. This is why we also encourage you to share your experiences, proposals and reflections by presenting your communications, which will surely help to give real meaning to these three intense days of work.

Finally, we also invite you to see and enjoy our city this year in which San Sebastian has been designated European Capital of Culture.

So write down the dates in your agendas and see you next October at the San Sebastian campus of the University of Deusto.
