Practicing theory, theorizing practice


Project Summary:

Review of critical Social Work theories and their practical application in key Social Work fields.

Project Description:

The project explores the dominant Social Work understanding of integration between theory and practice and aims to understand why the divide between theory and practice been a long-standing issue in social work. It asks the following series of questions: How does theory-practice integration look like in Social Work classrooms? How does it look like in various practice sites? What needs to change in the ways we think about theory and practice and their relationship to make integration tangible, especially for upper year Social Work students getting ready for practice? Finally, are there similar debates in other professions? If yes, what are these debates (e.g., medicine, law, Psychiatry)? Is there anything we can draw from in other professional disciplines?
