Topic: 4th International Conference on Sociology and Social Work
Social work is on a quest to shape a science for itself, as illustrated by University of Southern California’s 2011 conference on this theme (see September 2012 issue of Research on Social Work Practice). Social work has also embarked on a journey to formulate and address Grand Challenges that exist in areas such as fragmented systems of health and mental health care, issues of oppression and social stigma, and a need to reform the child welfare system. In all, these and other efforts to promote interdisciplinary interaction between sociology and social work may help create a better world.
