Journal features special section on FCAB

The Journal of Social Work Education has posted its January issue with a special section on Financial Capability and Asset Building. The papers originated as part of the Center for Social Development’s 2015 FCAB conference Financial Capability and Asset Building: Advancing Education, Research, and Practice in Social Work. 

The issue introduction, written by new editor Joanne Yaffe mentions CSD. She writes this:

“In this issue of JSWE, we are delighted to present a special section of five articles directly addressing one of the Grand Challenges: Build financial capability for all. I encourage social work scholars to submit additional manuscripts and to propose additional special sections or special issues featuring Grand Challenges scholarship.

This issue’s special section, edited by Julie Birkenmaier, Christine Callahan, Jodi Jacobson Frey, and Margaret Sherraden, centers on financial capability and asset building. The articles in this section emerged from an event organized by the Financial Capability and Asset Building (FCAB) initiative at the Center for Social Development at Washington University in St. Louis and the Financial Social Work Initiative at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, which aimed to advance FCAB in social work education, practice, and research as well as to strengthen networks of FCAB scholars, educators, professionals, and funders.”
