Attitudes toward Poverty during Undergraduate Education.
Schwartz, Sanford; Robinson, Margaret M.
Journal of Social Work Education, v27 n3 p290-96 Fall 1991
A study investigated perceptions of the causes of poverty held by undergraduate social work students (51 beginning, 29 intermediate, 39 senior). Results suggest students develop beliefs about poverty appropriate to the profession's values. Rise in fatalism and external locus of control correlated with completion of a social welfare policy course. (Author/MSE)
