About Our Editor



My name is Pat Shelly. I’m the Director of Community Engagement and Expansion at UBSSW. In addition to blogging, I also manage the school’s Twitter feed.

To give you a bit of my background, I received my MSW in 1995 and my clinical specialization is in the area of gender violence. I have worked at a sexual assault crisis service, as a systems advocate, an educator, a volunteer board member, and a psychotherapist in private practice.

SocialWorkSynergy, with its focus on trauma and human rights, is a natural extension of both my personal and professional interests and experience.

Please join me in this exciting blog start-up venture by sharing your thoughts, feedback on posts and what you’d like us to cover in future articles.
