Brekke, John S.
Research on Social Work Practice, v24 n5 p517-523 Sep 2014
There are two purposes to this article. The first is to update the science of social work framework. The second is to use recent discussions on the nature of realist science and on social work science to propose a definition of social work as an integrative scientific discipline that complements its definition as a profession.
