The Association of Directors of Childrens Services has backed a proposal to include a specialism in working with children in the social work degree.. In its submission to the Social Work Task Force, the ADCS said courses were failing to prepare graduates who were "immediately ready" to enter the workforce. Child development. It identified a "strong case" for specialisation in the last year of the degree, including knowledge of child development, multi-agency working and a "core set of skills" for the childrens workforce.. But ADCS rejected Lord Lamings recommendation that childrens specialisation should occur in the second year of the degree, arguing that this would "risk losing the coherence of social work as a profession" across adults and childrens services. The idea of child specialisation in the social work degree was proposed by the government before Lamings report, and was included in the looked-after children white paper in 2007.. Statutory placements. In its taskforce submission, ...

Community social work practice has made tremendous progress in reaching out to marginalized groups in urban and rural areas of the country, with social work scholars bringing many of the key concepts underlying community practice into fields like health promotion, fostering approaches ranging from involving beauticians in providing domestic violence services, to developing community gardens to address food security and educational initiatives. The role and importance of assessment in development of health and social services are well accepted in the field and represent the fundamental building blocks for the creation of any form of social intervention. Needs assessments are, without question, the most common form of assessment in these fields. They typically, however, result in a rather narrow view of a community that stresses disease risk profiles and lists of various social problem categories. Nevertheless, unlike needs assessments, asset assessments bring a range of factors and considerations to the

A historic and defining feature of social work is the professions focus on individual well-being in a social context and the well-being of society.[19] Social workers promote social justice and social change with and on behalf of clients.[20] A "client" can be an individual, family, group, organization, or community.[21] In the broadening scope of the modern social workers role, some practitioners have in recent years traveled to war-torn countries to provide psychosocial assistance to families and survivors.[22]. Newer areas of social work practice involve management science.[23] The growth of "social work administration" for transforming social policies into services and directing activities of an organization toward achievement of goals is a related field.[24] Helping clients with accessing benefits such as unemployment insurance and disability benefits, to assist individuals and families in building savings and acquiring assets to improve their financial security over the long-term, to ...

Only 23 (13%) of the 179 social work degree courses on offer throughout the UK still have spaces in clearing for A-level students who did not gain their first or second choice course, according to university admissions body UCAS.. Students across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will receive their A-level results today, but students in Scotland received them last week. Those wishing to study part-time will find the market for places even more competitive because there is only one course with part-time places available.. Ray Jones, professor of social work at Kingston University, said 13% was actually quite a high proportion of courses. However, he warned that this did not necessarily equate to a high proportion of places, because some of the courses may only have a few places left to offer. "The proportion of places is likely to be significantly lower than the proportion of courses with places available," he said.. Jones added that social work students should make sure they sell themselves ...

This entry identifies resources relevant to the study of disability that are pertinent to the field of social work. Representative of the multidisciplinary, continuously evolving and wide-ranging literature encompassing the study of disability, the selected references map the intellectual themes present in this field. Major contributions and approaches used in the study of disability, associated issues, and emergent themes relevant to the field of social work are emphasized. The ways disability is studied, treated, and understood reflects a continuum of approaches defined by two major schools of thought that influence policy, programming, and professional practice: individual pathology and social pathology. These two conceptions of disability at some points intersect both philosophically and chronologically; however, the distinct features of each are widely asserted within specific disciplinary contexts. The selected readings, to a significant degree, represent these diverse approaches toward ...
