Comments: Developing Critical Social Work in the Nordic and Baltic Countries

Comments In relation to our proposal: B) Developing Critical Social Work in the Nordic and Baltic Countries:

In the reference from the Board’s discussion You can read the following about our proposal:

“The interdisciplinary aspect is underdeveloped; it is very clearly situated in the discipline of social work”.

Our comments:

Social Work is in its character interdisciplinary. It draws upon: Sociology, psychology, political science, law and methodology in social work. Depending on the social problem in focus, social work can also draw upon: e.g. health science, anthropology, ethnography, physical planning (Spatial approaches to social work) and globalization. So we think that our proposal meets the demands of an interdisciplinary aspect.

Best wishes

Kirsten
