SOCIAL WORK 101

 

Social Work is the founding profession for the provision of social services. Since its professional start in 1898, the social work profession has continued to enrich communities through the development of private and public organizations that service those in need. For over 100 years, social workers have continued to perfect the art of providing social services through the application of both research and evidence based practice interventions.

 

QUICK FACT:

 

Today, Americans enjoy many privileges because early social workers saw injustice and took action. They had a passion to help others, which was accompanied by the persistent work to change inequalities. The work of our founding  social workers sought to improve the lives of those who experienced misery and injustice. Their work help those in need, while inspiring others along the way. Many of the benefits we take for granted came about because social workers—working with families and institutions—spoke out against abuse and neglect.

 

Examples of a few benefits we enjoy because of social workers:

  • The civil rights of all people regardless of gender, race, faith, or sexual orientation are protected.
  • Workers enjoy unemployment insurance, disability pay, worker’s compensation and Social Security.
  • People with mental illness and developmental disabilities are now afforded humane treatment.
  • Medicaid and Medicare give poor, disabled and elderly people access to health care.
  • Society seeks to prevent child abuse and neglect.
  • Treatment for mental illness and substance abuse is gradually losing its stigma.
