Social work is an interdisciplinary field which intersects such contrasting fields as psychology, sociology, public policy, health care, education and other disciplines. It is the hope of the EBSS Social Work Committee that this toolkit will provide useful information for both social work liaisons and social work researchers. The toolkit is organized by broad subject areas, some of which are then subdivided into more specific topic areas.
If you have questions or suggestions please contact the EBSS Social Work Committee Chair.
Toolkit Contributors: Karen Hartman, Laura Koltutsky, Anne Larrivee, Sara Memmott, Adina Mulliken, Kimberly Pendell, Deborah Schaeffer, Sue Wortman
