The age of globalisation has favoured international migration. Current studies on this topic have begun adopting the transnationalism approach. Accordingly, not only is the influence of migrants on the destination location being investigated; the relationships that occur at a distance with the place of origin are being examined also. In this respect, the family has come to form the core component of research on migration and transnationalism.

Support and individual guidance are basic tools when it comes to bringing about changes and enhancing personal and family progress in coping with care for relatives with dementia.

Rural life as an intervention setting has been scarcely considered within the context of the fields of social work.

Children with a parent in prison are at significantly greater risk of suffering numerous adverse effects if support is lacking. The Secretariat for Criminal Measures, Rehabilitation and Victim Support (SMPRAV) seeks to minimise relapse and protect victims. The risk management model focuses on identifying, assessing and minimising the criminal risk factors that have led an individual to commit a crime.
In this paper we seek to address the gender impact that the current health emergency caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic is bringing about.

We are offering you a journey through the unseen. It is a journey that seeks to change our organisations to enable them to be instrumental in the transformation that is unavoidably feminist and necessary for every person, organisation and context. We are proposing a journey that is fuelled by the collective lessons analysed from the organisational change strategy in pursuit of gender equality.
