Social Work/knowledge base used in social work
What are the underlying knowledge base of the theories and intervention models/frameworks that encompass social work
its a too general and broad question for anyone to answer at one go. However, I shall draw your attention to the following:
- Clinical Social Work is based on the premise of understanding, predicting and controlling human behavior.
- Social Work as a discipline draws from multiple primary disciplines including Sociology, Social Psychology, Social Anthropology, Organisational Behavior, Economics, and Political Science.
- Social Work is a helping profession, primarily aims at helping the needy,deprived, disadvantaged sections of the Society.
- Social Workers require appropriate knowledge, skill sets and attitude to practice the profession.
Hope that helps
