Abstract


Although social workers may have studied some important interdisciplinary sciences, they do not know how to use or apply them. This led the research team to conduct the study on some social workers in schools in El-Seeb, Muscat, to identify the difficulties they face while trying to benefit from interdisciplinary knowledge. The study is considered a descriptive; data was collected through an electronic questionnaire. The results showed that social workers encounter a number of difficulties related to the professional preparation of social workers, school administrations, available school facilities, and finally social workers themselves. The study also found that there is need to train social work students to conduct interdisciplinary research on social work and related sciences.
