Exploring the Importance of Interpersonal Relationships in Social Work Research: Reclaiming the Kardia of Research in Social Wor
Social Work and Christianity
This article presents our view of the role of interpersonal relationships in the research process and its primacy as a Biblical mandate for scholars who are Christians. We posit that developing meaningful relationships with stakeholders of our research is imperative in the quest to develop sustainable and translational research and to the advancement of evidence-informed social work practice. We also provide some practical advice for developing and enhancing the primacy and role of relationships in scholarship.
