Social Work Practice: Expanding Scope and Challenges

C P Singh (Editor) Vanita Dhingra (Editor)

In the last three decades we have witnessed a remarkable change in the social work education in India with swift increase in the number of institutions offering social work teaching and training. This has posed a challenge before the social work practitioners on how to enrich the practice part of social work education and training which is the core of social work profession. The present volume compiles essays on various aspects of social work practice, starting from individual to family, community and in society at large. These essays elaborate upon many theoretical concepts and their practical use with the changing scenario in our society. It has been established and also recognized by the international bodies like UNO, UNDP, UNICEF, WHO etc. that for the success of programmes for human development, social work intervention is very important. With the increasing recognition of social work as a profession and as a behavioural science, social work practitioners have not only helped individuals and families but their skills are now being harnessed by industries, commercial firms, multinational corporations, health agencies, hospitals and a range of public and private social agencies. These research papers are an outcome of in-depth study, work with clients and analysis done by the expert contributors in their respective field. This book will provide readers with a sound foundation on which social work practitioners could develop their expertise in social work practice.
