This submission for the award of PhD by Published Work includes a range of single, joint and multiple-authored publications that were published between 2005 and 2016. The publications cover a range of issues relevant to social work with a particular emphasis on mental health and health inequalities. The statement provides an underpinning conceptual framework that demonstrates interwoven themes of power, partnership and marginality. These are explored in relation to the published work, demonstrating an original and coherent contribution to the social work knowledge and practice base. The discussion draws on a reflexive journey through social work practice, education and research. The conclusion proposes that considerations of power and partnership are crucial elements of the potential for creative work 'on the margins'.
