Research interests

Professor Crisp has been actively involved in health and human services research for the last 25 years, initially in program development and evaluation in the areas of substance misuse, HIV/AIDS and health promotion. More recently, her research efforts have been in the area of professional development and the transfer of professional knowledge. From 2004 until 2008 she was involved in the evaluation of the new social work degree in England along with colleagues at the University of Glasgow and Kings College London. An ongoing interest which underpins Beths work is the need to establish measures and methodologies which form appropriate measures of evidence for the evaluation of complex programs in the human services. With other members of the Centre for Health Action on Social Exclusion (CHASE) she has published Theorising Social Exclusion (Routledge, 2009) and Practising Social Inclusion (Routledge, 2013). Her other main interest is in the interface between religion and spirituality and social work practice and has published the books Spirituality and Social Work (Ashgate, 2010) and Social Work and Faith-based Organizations (Routledge, 2014).
