Measuring Vietnamese social work students' and non-social work students' attitudes toward poverty and poor population
A total of 180 social work students and nonsocial work students at Ho Chi Minh City Open University in Vietnam were surveyed. Among them, 86 were social work students, the other 94 students were from law (n=34), foreign language (n=30) and economics (n=30). The survey results showed that, when looking for causes of poverty, social work students and nonsocial work students put most emphasis on structural factors of poverty. However, social work students, compared with nonsocial work students, consider personal deficiency and stigma more important.
