In the spring of 2022, we visited a couple of facilities in Germany (Berlin and Frankfurt) that provide help a and support to people who use drugs, people with HIV, people struggling with mental health. We were curious to learn more about their services with a particular interest focused on social work services available in their facilities. Based on our visits we created these short videos - each focused on different aspects of social work. We hope you will enjoy our work!
The Faculty of Health and Social Work of the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences offers bachelor and master’s degrees in social work. For a bachelor’s degree depending on your interest as well as the international or local context you can study either Social Work or Social Work Transnational. There are also possibilities for a master's degree, with different focus. If you are interested in addictions, you can, after completing your bachelor's degree continue your studies by enrolling for a Masters in Addiction Therapy and Social Management in Addiction Care.
In this episode we take a look at the function and importance of prevention machines located in Berlin.
