Social work - not just social problems

In a new blog series, researchers in social work explain what kind of research and perspectives guide their work. They also demonstrate how social work research helps us to understand everyday life in its socio-political context. The first blog focuses on interactions.

To understand people and their everyday life with a focus on the social interactions is about gaining access to the complex, changeable and the unpredictable processes that shape social contexts. People create meaning from what happens to them by interacting with eachother. We may understand very little about ourselves or other people and the relationships to eachother unless we take our mutual interactions into consideration. The blog discusses social interaction in relation to social work.
