Social Work Education in India: Challenges and Opportunities

Prof. Dr. S. P. Srivastava (Editor) Surendra Singh (Editor)
Synopsis The Volume brings out the disturbing realites of social work education and practice in India to the forefront. It contains twenty seven essays which identify almost all the key issues and critical challenges that social work education faces in making itself relevant and responsive to the turbulent tempers of the modern-day society in India, especially in its interface with the millenniast manifestations of newly emerging world order. The papers have discoursed the crisis that social work education confronts, have debated the issues that need immediate attention and have diagnosed the malaises that seem to be rendering the profession incapable of respoding to the complexities of the millenniast challenges. The contributors have examined the retrospect of social work education in the country in the backdrop of its afflictions and infirmities, and have looked at the prospects of bringing about radical reformative and reinvigorative changes in the content and quality of teaching and professional preparation of the social work trained manpower needed in the country now. The articles intend to mould the mindset of despair and despondency to enter into the new era of remedying the scenario of self-doubt and rectifying the omissions of the past. The rumours of the profession's demise as prophesized in the USA, have been set at rest by resolving that since all is not lost for the profession's credibility and usefulness, there is time to act with courage and conviction to tide over the crisis and convert disadvantage into an advantage. The volume is bound to stir the souls of the sensitive social work educators in the country both individually and collectively.
