Social Work Contributions to Public Health: Bridging Research & Practice in Preventing Violence – Lessons from Child Maltreatment & Domestic Violence

IASWR identified and documented contributions from social work research in violence prevention, especially in the areas of child maltreatment and domestic violence. The goal was to identify how social work researchers and social work institutions (organizations and academia) can contribute through research and the translation of research into practice, to the endeavors of public health agencies and other state-based agencies to prevent violence. This report has four major sections: Part One provides information about the social work profession, and an overview of its involvement with the Injury Center public health priorities and violence prevention. Part Two identifies specific Injury Center priority areas and provides a snapshot of social work research and training activities in those areas. Part Three identifies strategies and recommendations for strengthening CDC and social work collaboration. Part Four includes detailed appendices about research efforts, centers within social work education programs, key social work organizations, report from the July 2003 IASWR/CDC meeting, and other relevant resources and websites.
