Welcome to The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast! Today, Dr Berney and Dr Marshall interview Dr Neil Gibson, a senior lecturer and course leader for the BA (Hons) Social Work degree programme at Robert Gordon University.
Neil studied Communication at Napier University in the mid 90’s and had a ‘varied’ career path before entering the world of social work including working in a bank, working on a sheep farm, presenting a travel programme for Channel 4, driving backpacking tour buses and managing a youth hostel.
Neil studied the PG Social Work course at Robert Gordon University in 2003. While studying he worked in a children’s home and a residential home for people with learning disabilities. Upon qualifying, Neil went to work in the social work team based at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. After two years he went to work for the Criminal Justice Addictions Team, then got a senior practitioners position within Aberdeenshire’s Adult Protection Team, before taking up a senior position at Aberdeen City Council within their Adult Protection Unit. Neil joined the teaching team at RGU in 2011. Since qualifying he has also completed postgraduate courses in Practice Teaching, Addictions and Adult Protection through RGU, University of Glasgow and the University of St Andrews. He has been researching the therapeutic benefits of photography in social work since 2013 and has recently obtained his PhD in this area.
