What is Social Work?

Social work is a broadly defined profession encompassing many different kinds of professionals who all serve people in need. The International Federation of Social Workers External link  calls social work “an interrelated system of values, theory and practice.” Social workers are unique in the way that they look at many different aspects of a problem, from the individual to the societal, from the psychological to the political. Common ways of serving clients include providing counseling, therapy and education, as well as connecting clients to appropriate public or private resources.  Learn More.
