Nurturing "Critical Hope" in Teaching Feminist Social Work Research
Anderson-Nathe, Ben; Gringeri, Christina; Wahab, Stephanie
Journal of Social Work Education, v49 n2 p277-291 2013
Despite the congruence between critical feminist values and the cardinal values of the social work profession, feminist research in social work has lagged behind its feminist cousins in the social sciences, particularly in terms of critical uses of theory, reflexivity, and the troubling of binaries. This article presents as praxis our reflections as researchers, teachers, and feminists inside social work. We draw from a review of feminist social work research and offer suggestions for teaching critical feminist approaches in social work research. Incorporating critical feminist values and research practices into social work research courses creates the potential for greater integration of research, practice, and the principal values of our profession.
