Brian O’Neill is an associate professor at the UBC School of Social work. He received an MSW from Carleton University in 1971 and a PhD from Wilfrid Laurier University in 1994. He joined the School in 1995, has been graduate advisor and chair of the MSW program, and currently is the chair of field education. Between 1968 and 1988, he practiced in child welfare, primarily in management roles. His teaching has focused on qualitative research methods, social service management, interprofessional practice and addressing heterosexism and homophobia in social work practice. With respect to community service, he has been active in the Canadian Association for Social Work Education, has served on the boards of various social service organizations, and is a member of the steering committee of the UBC Critical Studies in Sexuality Arts Minor. He also provides counselling at Health Initiatives for Men, a local health and social agency. His research investigates the influence of heterosexism in health and social service delivery, most recently immigrant settlement services. His most recent publications are chapters entitled “Toward inclusion of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people: Social policy changes in relation to sexual orientation” in the 2012 edition of Canadian Social Policy, edited by Dr. Anne Westhues, and “Enhancing social inclusion: Settlement services in relation to lesbian, gay and bisexual newcomers” in Engendering Migrant Health: Canadian Perspectives (2011, D.
