Looking for trustworthy scholarly information in social work? Try the Encyclopedia of Social Work! Articles are written by experts and updated regularly, and they cover major areas of social work theory, research, policy, and practice. Here are just a few of the 400 articles you’ll find:
- Alcohol and Drug Problems: Practice Interventions
- Ecological Framework
- Domestic Violence in the LGBT Community
- Kinship Care
- Intersectionality and Social Work

These articles would satisfy Goldilocks, if she were a social work student: they’re neither too deep nor too shallow, but just right. Each provides a meaningful overview of a topic, and links to additional readings where you can learn more.

This online resource is 100% available to all Wheelock College faculty, staff, and students: no matter if you are in Boston or Worcester, in the BSW or MSW program, or are studying in a related field.
