This article looks into the coverage of social development in the curricula of Australian social work schools. Although most Australian BSW programmes appear to concentrate on a remedial social work model, some schools have made significant progress in incorporating social development content into their MA/MSW and higher-degree research programmes. The study identifies critical problems and strategies relating to the inclusion of such material.
