What does Generation Y social work look like?:
In conversation with Tiffany Apaitia Vague
How does Generation Y view social work and negotiate their professional identities? Tiffany Apaitia Vague addresses these issues in her research on young social workers in New Zealand. Despite disruption from devastating natural disasters, the values and commitment to their communities is strong for young New Zealand social workers.
Tiffany is a Social Work Educator at The Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki and a doctoral student at Massey University in New Zealand. She has been engaged in community work in Kosovo and Fiji, and has worked as a child protection social worker in New Zealand. The subject of her thesis is “The Transmission of Heteronormative Values to Children and Young People in State Care”. Tiffany is always happy to speak to anyone interested in her research that has identified a number of themes including spirituality, social work theories and practices; disaster studies, and social work as a profession. She is also very interested in connecting with researchers who are interested in the intersection of sexuality and social work.
