Abstract

PurposeThe increasing interest in professional judgement and decision making is often separate from the discourse about ‘risk’, and the time-honoured focus on assessment.MethodThe need to develop research in and between these topics was recognised in the founding of a Decisions, Assessment and Risk Special Interest Group (DARSIG) by the European Social Work Research Association in 2014.Results The Group’s interests include cognitive judgements; decision processes with clients, families and other stakeholders; assessment tools and processes; the assessment, communication and management of risk; and legal, ethical and emotional aspects. This article outlines the founding and scope of DARSIG; gives a brief overview of key dimensions of decision making, assessment and risk,and their connections; and highlights research priorities for the future.DiscussionProfessional knowledge about decision making, assessment and risk complements knowledge about effectiveness of interventions. ConclusionDARSIG promises to be an effective mechanism for the purpose.
