CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


Empan was born out of the combined efforts of education, social, and health workers who believe that the written word is both a fundamental witness to the present and an invitation to the past. Social changes are at work. Social workers, both citizens and professionals, must give themselves the means to reflect on the movements within society that profoundly alter their field of public, associative, and private action and the care for socially, educationally, and psychically deprived children, adolescents, and adults.

The ARSEAA (Association régionale pour la sauvegarde de l’enfant, de l’adolescent, et de l’adulte [Regional Association of Child, Adolescent, and Adult Protection], association loi 1901) provides the institutional support for Empan. The goal of this charitable organization is to provide access to and perspective on everyday clinical, administrative, and policy interventions.

Through its choice of topics, Empan seeks to challenge and drive the future of social work.
