Founded in 1927, Social Service Review is committed to examining social welfare policy and practice and evaluating its effects. Providing multidisciplinary and multicultural analyses of current policies and past practices, the Review helps its readers to see critical problems in their broader contexts and to consider long-range solutions. The Review features in-depth observations and balanced research from social welfare scholars and practitioners, as well as economists, theologians, historians, psychologists, and political scientists. Articles include a wide array of topics such as child welfare, health care, social welfare policy, homelessness, community, clinical practice, and juvenile delinquency. In addition to thought-provoking essays, the Review provides book reviews to keep readers informed of current critical research.
