This site has been designed primarily for students of social
work. It may also be of interest to those studying or working
in the fields of family therapy, counseling and psychology.
The target words have been selected on the basis of their
frequency of appearance in a small database of academic
texts drawn from these fields and from professional social
work case records.
Words which occur frequently in this database but are targeted
in the academic vocabulary site the University Word Web
are not included here unless they have a special meaning
or usage in the social work field.
