Priyadarshini – Assessing Social Worker
Hi, my name is Priyadarshini. I have joined as an Assessing Social Worker in the South-East office of UK Fostering. I completed my master’s in Social Work from Delhi University, India in 2020. Did M.Phil. in Psychiatric Social Work in a government psychiatric hospital in 2023.
As part of my academic curriculum, I’ve worked in various settings with children and families. These include promoting awareness among the tribal population to seek medical attention while following their traditional practices. Advocacy on issues such as child abuse, post-trauma counselling of survivors of sexual abuse, awareness campaigns regarding mental health, facilitating life skills training to inpatients at the hospital, pre-discharge counselling and follow-up plans, working with families of mental health patients providing them with support and assisting in family therapy.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my pets and watching movies. I love travelling and exploring new places.
