For the third International Scholar Talk Series in the academic year 2022-23, Prof. Ka Tat TSANG, Professor of Social Work at the University of Toronto, delivered an online talk entitled “SSLD: An Intervention System for the Post-Professional Era” on 17 March 2023. This International Scholar Talk Series is one of the initiatives to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of APSS.
During his presentation, Prof. TSANG introduced how the post-professional condition is marked by the combined challenges of technological innovation, late capitalism and a rapidly changing practice environment. The talk was moderated by Prof. Eric CHUI, Head of APSS, and Prof. Edward CHAN, Professor of APSS and RGC Senior Research Fellow. Discussion was made on how the profession is responding to processes of the post-professional condition and how some professions may benefit from this changing context.
A big thanks to Prof. TSANG for giving an intellectually stimulating presentation!
