Abstract english

Service users have lacked substantial influence, access, and participation in social work education in Norway and Sweden. This article presents comparative analyses of two participatory projects that have developed and implemented practices that integrate service users into academic social work education and empower service users. The Norwegian HUSK project and the Social Mobilization, Community Work and Structural Change course, also known as the “Mobilization course,” at Lund University in Sweden demonstrate collaboration between research, social work education, and service users. The conclusions focus on the importance of the empowering processes by including recognition and dialogue, co-learning in practice, and the use of neutral venues to ensure effective user participation. The inclusion of service users in social work education can improve both practice and education.
