Defining clinical sociology…
Clinical sociology is a creative, humanistic and interdisciplinary specialization that seeks to improve the quality of people’s lives. Clinical sociologists work with client systems to assess situations and avoid, reduce or eliminate problems through a combination of analysis and intervention.
Clinical analysis is the critical assessment of beliefs, policies, or practices, with an interest in improving the situation.
Intervention is based on continuing analysis; it is the creation of new systems as well as the change of existing systems and can include a focus on prevention or promotion (e.g., preventing environmental racism or promoting community sustainability).
Clinical sociologists are employed, for instance, as managers, consultants, organizational development specialists, professors (scholar-practitioners), mediators, policymakers, counsellors and therapists. Clinical sociologists conduct many kinds of research including needs assessments and evaluations.
