Social Work Research Centers
Research is the bedrock of social work practice, ensuring that individuals, families and communities receive the most effective, innovative, and culturally attuned interventions and treatments that social workers are able to provide. Here at Wayne State we have committed faculty, staff, funding and additional resources to two specialized centers, which impact our profession and the quality of life in our home, Detroit, and around the globe.
As the premier provider of continuing education in the metro Detroit area, we integrate both intellectually challenging and practice-relevant courses taught by highly experienced social work practitioners. Workshops are intended to inform practitioners on theoretical advances and 'best practices' in the profession as well as challenge practitioners to integrate current knowledge from the social science research in their professional work.
