Dr Jennifer Lehmann Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Office Of La Trobe Rural Health

Jennifer has come to teaching in Social Work after a diverse career, but with a core focus on child, youth and family services in both South Australia and Victoria. Since 1978 she has been living and working in rural and regional areas, and has undertaken a variety of roles in direct practice and in management in both government and non-government sectors, together with private consultancy practice. Though her PhD studies were associated with change management, her interests are currently in the areas of narrative research, the connections between social work and environmental issues and social pedagogy. Jennifer has worked as a consultant, and is a published author in both academic and literary fields. She has addressed such diverse activities as hoarding and domestic squalor and the role of community arts for people with disability, and continues to maintain research interests with organisations delivering a range of child, family and welfare services. Jennifer is, at present, Postgraduate Coordinator for Social Work on Bendigo Campus.
