Values: Implications for Current Practice

By Daniel Grodofsky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1969

Two values central to social work are the worth of the individual and pluralism. One of social work's missions is to exert leadership in stimulating the provision of broad services which appropriately recognize individual worth and enhance human growth. As well, social work can be instrumental in the championing of a pluralistic American society in which many sub-groups, including African Americans, are given leeway to make self-serving decisions and demands. Though social work cannot remedy all of America's social ills, it can uphold these two essential values and ultimately improve the society in which all Americans live.
