A Doctoral dissertation studying the lived experience of decision making

by child welfare social workers in British Columbia, Canada. Through

personal interviews with eight social workers currently employed by the

province of British Columbia, who each had more than ten years of

experience, information was collected about decision making in both

crisis and non-crisis situations. The participants revealed that,

contrary to the literature, they used intuition based on their

experience and expertise in the field of social work as a supplement to

rational decision-making processes in both situations. This has

implications for future research and for social work leadership. The

field of social work has been moving towards decision aids and

structured decision-making tools in an attempt to standardize social

work decision- making. The role of intuition based on practice

experience needs to be addressed by research on decision making and the

practice of child welfare social work.
