On Some of the Difficulties of Doing Social Welfare Research
By Isidor Chein
Chein's main concern in this piece is to promote research practices that will establish the various fields of social welfare on a solid foundation of scientifically verifiable principles. However, true to its title, the article delves into numerous difficulties inherent in conducting social research. Thus, Chein explores the psychological barriers of research, encourages researchers to appropriately appreciate statistical data, and describes the problem of cooperation between "research people and practitioners," among many other topics covered.
