In 1985, the numerous small initiatives exploring these challenges and opportunities found each other and gained momentum. In the USA, Dick Schoech launched the first issue of the Computers in human services journal with the support of people like Walter LaMendola. This was an expansion of the already existing Computer Use in Social Services Network (CUSSN). The journal was later renamed to Journal of Technology in Human Services. Also in 1985 in the UK, Bryan Glastonbury published his Computers in social work. These people, together with e.g. Hein de Graaf (NL), Jackie Rafferty (UK), Rob MacFadden (Canada) and Jan Steyaert (NL & B) launched HUSITA (Human Service Information Technology Applications) and ENITH (European Network for Information Technology and Human Services) and organized a series of almost yearly global or European conferences. The American journal was complemented by the UK-bases Computer Applications in Social Work journal. It was later renamed New Technology in the Human Services and ceased to be published in 2003.

During a time of significant demographic, geographic, and social transition, many women in early nineteenth-century Montreal turned to prostitution and brothel-keeping to feed, clothe, protect, and house themselves and their families. Beyond Brutal Passions is a close study of the women who were accused of marketing sex, their economic and social susceptibilities, and the strategies they employed to resist authority and assert their own agency.

Through a close study of representations of lobotomy in a wide variety of cultural texts, American Lobotomy offers a rhetorical history of the infamous procedure and illustrates its continued effect on American medicine. The development of lobotomy in 1935 was heralded as a “miracle cure” by newspapers and magazines, which hoped openly that the “soul surgery” would empty the nation’s perennially blighted asylums. However, the miracle cure soon began to fall from favor with the American public, as the operation became characterized as a barbaric practice with suspiciously authoritarian overtones. – See more at: http://www.press.umich.edu/4664873/american_lobotomy#sthash.EDrTdqxp.dpuf

Tower Colliery SWC was formed in 1951, at that time 1200 men worked at Tower. A general meeting was held and the men agreed to have 5p (1 shilling old money) deducted from their wages. This would be used for parties for the children of employees at Christmas. £1.50 would be used for retired miners to have “a get together” at the St Johns Ambulance Hall.
