  • The International Federation of Social Work defines social work as “promoting social change, problem solving in human relationships and the empowerment and liberation of people to enhance well-being. Utilizing theories of human behavior and social systems, social work intervenes at the points where people interact with their environments. Principles of human rights and social justice are fundamental to social work.” A social worker is trained to help people acquire services fundamental to human need; to provide individuals, families, and groups with counseling and psychotherapy; to help communities develop, improve, and deliver social services; and to participate in the development of social policy. For more information, see Hare (2004) and International Federation of Social Workers (2000).
