Texas Univ., Austin. School of Social Work.
There is a crisis in the current development of research resources in social work. The contributions of practice-relevant research to the knowledge base of social work practice lag far behind the growth of the profession and professional education. This report describes the status of research development in social work, summarizes current issues, and makes recommendations for action in professional education, research career development, research dissemination, a support system for research, and a plan of action for research development. A 31-item list of references is included as are three appendices: (1) Task Force Timeline; (2) Annotated List of Studies; and (3) Work Associations and Interest Groups. (DB)
