The Queer Utility of Narrative Case Studies for Clinical Social Work Research and Practice The author uses a queer critical lens to analyze the marginalization of case study research in the evidence-based practice model of clinical social work.

The method is explored in relation to its capacity to describe non-normative phenomena and the impact of normative cultural pressures on queer subjects.

Abstract

The author uses a queer critical lens to analyze the marginalization of case study research in the evidence-based practice model of clinical social work. He argues that narrative case studies are necessary for the production of context-dependent knowledge about social work practice and asserts that the method offers particular utility in conducting queer inquiry. The method is explored in relation to its capacity to describe non-normative phenomena and the impact of normative cultural pressures on queer subjects. An abbreviated case study by the author is included to demonstrate these capacities.
