Sociological Foundations of Professional Social Work

By Herbert H. Stroup

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1946

The author discusses five basic societal prerequisites for social work, without which social work would be impossible or ineffective. These are: 1) a high degree of social mobility; 2) a social order with a sense of impersonality; 3) a loss of welfare function; 4) a developed sense of social responsibility; and 5) community resources which relate positively to needs.
