Social Work Study Group

Social workers, together with the people they work with, both obtain and produce sociological knowledge about how society treats those most marginalised and subject to social interventions. This knowledge is often either not considered as being of equivalent quality to that developed by other disciplines or becomes subsumed within them.  In turn, this can undermine the credibility and distinctiveness of social work knowledge and, in particular, the contribution of social work research within sociological theory and research.
