SSWR Blogs

The Society for Social Work and Research is pleased to provide these blogs to facilitate communication between members and other interested parties related to variety of topics of concern within the Society and in the social work and research community. The procedures for the blogs are that any interested party can read and respond to threads. If you want to add a thread, you must communicate that request to DeeJay Garringo, Membership Director/Conference Program Coordinator, at dj@sswr.org. Posting of uncopyrighted materials (e.g., in press manuscripts or reviewer feedback) is permissible. These blogs are moderated. We hope that these are useful to the SSWR membership.
