Theorising Social Work Research

ESRC-funded Seminar Series

During 1998, a bid was made under the aegis of the University of Warwick for funding from the ESRC Seminar Competition to mount a series of events on 'Theorising Social Work Research'. The bid was successful and six seminars were held between May 1999 and July 2000, together with a concluding conference in December 2000.

A core group of researchers, research funders and research users attended the seminars and the organising group was drawn from the Joint University Council Social Work Education Committee, the National Institute for Social Work and the Association of University Professors of Social Work
