Social Work

A Helping Profession

Social Work, an action-oriented profession, helps individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities identify and develop strengths and resources to address personal, social and societal (political) problems. Social work focuses on the "person-in-the-environment," a unique perspective that allows the social worker to not only address the negative effects of social problems on individuals, but to also work to change those social conditions and systems that contribute to human suffering. Social workers make a fundamental difference. Social work is the creative blending of the cognitive (thinking), affective (feeling), and behavioral (doing) abilities of the worker which enables the social worker to create positive change in the people, groups, and institutions that we serve.
