Social Work

Social work professionals strive to “enhance human well-being and help meet the basic human needs of all people, with particular attention to the needs and empowerment of people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty.” (Code of Ethics, National Association of Social Workers, 1999). Due to its interdisciplinary nature, information from a number of other disciplines such as psychology and sociology may also be of interest to those doing research in the field of social work.
