Christian Beech is a senior lecturer and programme director of the BSc Social Work programme. Christian has recently completed his PhD in Social Work, which he undertook part-time and which focused on interprofessional working with risk and older people in multidisciplinary teams.  Christian also undertook his social work training at Swansea qualifying with a Diploma in Social Work and a MSc in Applied Social Studies. Following a career that spanned practitioner and management roles across children and adult services in a range of acute and community mental health services, Christian joined the university in 2007 after winning a secondment to lead a research project aimed at developing an evidence base for social work with older people. Since this time he has been involved in a range of research projects linked to older people and social work and now intends to focus his post-doctoral research on interprofessional working between health and social care professionals.
