Introduction to Social Work

Comment Icon0 Social work is a helping profession focused on “social change, problem solving in human relationships and the empowerment and liberation of people to enhance well-being” (IASSW & IFSW 2001). Social workers usually work with people viewed as having special disadvantages, such as persons with low incomes, persons with disabilities, elders, and persons diagnosed with mental illness. However, some social workers provide counseling services to middle-class clients who only have ordinary problems in living. (see Wikipedia article )
