Sharing Research that Matters: Announcing our Research Briefs for School Social Workers
School social workers are busy people. Finding good research takes time. We want to help.
Starting in December, we will post Research Briefs (RBs) each week. These RBs will be completed by school social workers like you, taking research they’ve found and applying it to their school contexts. These RBs will describe research articles and what the particular study could contribute to your school social work practice, starting as soon as tomorrow. They will cover the kinds of things you see every day in your practice and (hopefully) be written in a way that you can use the information right away. You can find our initial RBs completed by SSWN co-editor (and SSW and doctoral student extraordinaire) Michele Patak-Piatrafesa here, here, & here.
We hope you like the RBs, we hope you find them useful, and we hope that you tell us what you’re doing with the RB information so we can promote Research That Matters to school social workers here in the u.s. and all over the world.
