SOCW 8140 - Action Research Methods in Social Work


(5 cr.) Action research is a form of social research that combines research with intervention. It is characterized by a collaborative relationship between the researcher and a client organization that is in an immediate problematic situation. The research process is directed toward addressing the problem situation and producing knowledge that contributes to the goals of social science. Action research is compatible with many of the values and principles of social work. Students in this course also address issues of social work ethics and values encountered by the action researcher.
