Play episode

Dr. Michael Reisch

This is the second of two episodes in which Dr. Michael Reisch describes how the past is the present, and how “master narratives” about historical events have come to frame how the social work research agenda has been set, how its been done, and how its findings have been implemented. Dr. Reisch continues his historical overview from the 1930’s to present day, touching on the eras of McCarthyism, Marxsim, Scientific Positivism, and Post-Modernism. He concludes with provocative observations and challenges for current research and practice.
