Heather Boetto


Heather's research focuses on environmental social work, also known as 'ecosocial work' and 'green social work'. Heather was awarded the University Medal in 2017 for her PhD, which culminated in the development of a 'transformative ecosocial work model' for practice, also published in the British Journal of Social Work (Boetto, 2017). Heather has undertaken action research with practitioners to facilitate the integration of ecosocial work in professional practice in Australia and Finland (Boetto et al., 2020), and was awarded the 2018 Best Article from the International Journal of Social Work exploring the ethics of environmental sustainability in social work (Bowles, et al., 2018).
