We're developing a formidable reputation for producing theoretically driven research to examine social issues and social work practice in our ever-evolving world.
Our research tackles many of the challenges that social workers face, including:
- Child protection
- Domestic and family violence
- Children and young people
- Family wellbeing
Social workers seek out knowledge by understanding their clients' personal meanings and problems, as well as the social and institutional issues that cause and contribute to inequality and oppression.
We deal with complex problems that need nuanced, evidence-based responses. In doing so, we embrace innovation, creativity, risk-taking, collaboration, and fresh perspectives.
The evidence we produce — when put into action— will help social workers to work more effectively with our communities.
