SWKG 685 - Selected Topics: Child Welfare: Home

Overview

Welcome to your SWKG 685 Child Welfare course guide!

The tabs above will guide and direct in providing resources for your course and general research needs. I am happy to assist with your research needs, whether it's determining appropriate sources to consult, help with focusing your topic, database searches, tracking down those "hard to find" references and resources, and/or overall research strategy.

You may find additional resources not listed in the course guide by going to the Social Work Subject Guide.

The Social Work Student's Guide to Research Handbook (2nd ed.) may also be a useful resource.
