Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the concept of knowledge-based social work as exemplified by the project Barns behov i centrum (BBiC). Questions: What are the central concepts of knowledged-based social work? How has BBiC, identified as a "knowledge project", developed? How do social workers understand knowledge development efforts? Method: Explorative case study (interview, litterature study and survey study). Conclusion: Important concepts are identified, including knowledge-based social work, competence, knowledge and learning. Two discourses are evident: evidence-based practice and reflective practice. Applying a contextual model of analysis, this report identifies processes of strategy formation as expressed in the... (More)
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the concept of knowledge-based social work as exemplified by the project Barns behov i centrum (BBiC). Questions: What are the central concepts of knowledged-based social work? How has BBiC, identified as a "knowledge project", developed? How do social workers understand knowledge development efforts? Method: Explorative case study (interview, litterature study and survey study). Conclusion: Important concepts are identified, including knowledge-based social work, competence, knowledge and learning. Two discourses are evident: evidence-based practice and reflective practice. Applying a contextual model of analysis, this report identifies processes of strategy formation as expressed in the BBiC project. BBiC is seen as a proponent for an evidence-based practice, with strong influences of prescriptive design. Social workers are keenly aware of the design of BBiC in relationship to practice methodology. A common vocabulary is needed, which would enable them to actively participate in public discussion. A dynamic flow of information between research, education and practice and an openness to the needs of social workers is regarded as imperative in establishing a knowledge-based field. Key words: kunskapsbaserad socialtjänst, kunskaps- och kompetensutveckling, evidensbaserad praktik, medvetandegörande praktik, projektstrategi. (Less)
