Social Work Research Areas and Disciplines

Social work research is to benefit professional practice, by assessing the needs of people, evaluating the effectiveness of social work services in meeting peoples' needs, demonstrating costs and benefits of social work services, advancing professional education, and understanding the impact of legislation and social policy on clients and communities.

One area of research focuses on social work contributions to quality psychosocial care in nursing homes. Researchers, working in collaboration with policy makers, have created several measures for psychosocial care and quality of life. They are studying concepts such as comfort and security, enjoyment, privacy and autonomy, dignity, and spiritual well-being.

Child welfare is an important facet of social work research. This includes topics into abuse and neglect, exposure to domestic violence, and emotional maltreatment. Researchers are examining the relationships between child abuse and issues such as suicide, heart disease, and future adult victimization. Others are examining how victims of child abuse differ in adult temperament and their general resilience in an attempt to determine which children are most at-risk in a long-term context.

Other areas of research focus on substance abuse, equity and diversity studies, and women's studies. See these articles for more information.
