Social Work
Social work is a profession that helps individuals, families, and groups change behaviors, emotions, attitudes, relationships, and social conditions to restore and enhance their capacity to meet their personal and social needs. Social workers are trained to provide a variety of services, ranging from psychotherapy to the administration of health and welfare programs. They work with human development and behavior, including the social, economic, and cultural systems in which people function. Social workers assist people with problems while helping them to identify and use their strengths to deal with situations. They also help their clients negotiate situations in the environment that can contribute to stress. For example, social workers:

  • Assess and evaluate clients
  • Develop a treatment plan in conjunction with the client
  • Identify resources and services, and provide direct services such as counseling, psychotherapy and case management
  • Evaluate client progress and modify treatment plans or terminate services when appropriate
  • Advocate for the client's rights and access to benefits and services
  • Engage in research, analysis and community organization to improve societal conditions
