Aimee Georgeson

Senior Lecturer in Social Work

I am a lecturer in Social Work, teaching across social work programs. Specialist interests include violence against women and girls; grassroots environmental work and systemic analysis. Other interests include matriarchal societies, emotional wellbeing in social work and relationship-based practice.


I am a lecturer in Social Work across three programs. I have over 15 years experience in Child Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) primarily focussed on evidence-based assessment/interventions, risk analysis, and supervision. I hold extensive experience in routine and complex case formulation, including neuro-developmental disorders, attachment and trauma.

I remain in frontline practice with Social Workers Without Borders, offering case coordination and analysis of human rights and best interest assessments for refugees and asylum seekers. I am a strong supporter of activism in social work, to bring about change from the ground up. My research interests include systemic analysis regarding cultural dominance, violence against women and girls and harm towards the natural world.

Teaching & Research


I have strong commitment to relationship-based teaching and nurturing students to gain the skills needed to make a difference to the people they work with and their communities. I teach balancing rights, risks and responsibilities, professional identities, social work theory and application to practice (skills). I offer support to the broader school of health and social care specifically regarding child and adolescent mental health (CAMH). I particularly enjoy teaching-related CAMH; feminist social work, environmental social work and trauma.


I am currently co-creating a study regarding social work student’s knowledge regarding sustainability in front line practice. I aim to write a systemic article on VAWG and environmental harm.
