Dr Maidment is from the College of Arts and teaches several 300 and 400 level Social Work papers.

Co-edited with Dr Liz Beddoe from the University of Auckland, the book is titled ‘Social Policy for Social Work and Human Services in Aotearoa New Zealand: Diverse Perspectives’.  

It aims to educate social work students on how policy is influenced, examining political ideologies and media framing, because they will be working with people on the frontline of these decisions.
