Putting the Social Work Back Into Social Work

By Charles S. Levy

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1974

The author asserts that the field of social work suffers from too broad a set of conceptions about what the function of social work really entails. Everything from psychotherapy to social policy formulation are considered social work, he argues. The author argues that rather than trying to solve clients' problems, the social worker's function is to assist the client in relating productively to goals in spite of the problems.
