Advancing Doctoral Social Work Education: An Application of the Social-Ecological Framework
Dougherty, Cynthia; Fields, Noelle L.; Schuman, Donna
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v37 n4 p322-336 2017
Graduates of social work doctoral programs are an integral part of social work education and, as faculty, training of BSW and MSW students. Missing from the literature are theoretical frameworks that advance the study of "what works and for whom" in social work doctoral education. Building upon the existing literature, this article proposes a conceptual framework for enhancing doctoral students' experiences, as well as doctoral education programs. Specific strategies grounded by this framework are put forward to guide PhD students and educators in advancing doctoral social work education.
