Ann McLaughlin Author of WORLD CHANGE-MAKER: BUILD SKILLS IN INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENt & SOCIAL WORK.
Ann discusses her book, World Change-Maker: Build Skills in International Development and Social Work. Ann’s book is full of stories – as is this podcast – to help people understand how half the world lives. People who grasp these gritty realities and have the essential skills are more likely to get an international job.
Ann worked 20 years as a psychotherapist/ social worker and then worked in international development. For the last 20 years she has directed NGOabroad (http://ngoabroad.com/) providing international career counseling. Ann was asked to write a book on international social work. Ann knew that we did not need one more book on the problems, but a book on the practical skills needed on the ground. Change-making skills are much the same to create change in your own community or country as those skills needed internationally.
