SOME NOTES ON A MODEL FOR AN INTEGRATED SOCIAL WORK APPROACH TO SOCIAL PROBLEMS.
RIESSMAN, FRANK; SPECHT, HARRY
SOCIAL AGENCIES SHOULD BE ORGANIZED, NOT TO OFFER SPECIFIC SERVICES, BUT RATHER TO DEAL WITH SOCIAL PROBLEMS AND RELATED AREAS. SOCIAL WORK HAS TENDED TO DEVELOP TECHNICIANS WITH SPECIALIZED POINTS OF VIEW. SOCIAL PROBLEMS CAN OCCUR AT THE SOCIAL LEVELS OF THE INDIVIDUAL, THE GROUP, THE ORGANIZATION, OR THE INSTITUTION. EACH LEVEL INVOLVES A DIFFERENT GROUP OF SOCIAL WORKERS AND A DIFFERENT SET OF METHODS. TO DETERMINE THE BEST SOLUTION FOR A SOCIAL PROBLEM, THE SOCIAL WORKER MUST FIRST LOCATE THE LEVEL OF THE PROBLEM. IT IS ALSO NECESSARY THAT PROFESSIONAL SOCIAL WORKERS, MOST OF WHOM ARE SPECIALISTS IN ONE PARTICULAR METHOD, HAVE A THEORETICAL FRAME-WORK WHICH ENABLES THEM TO LINK THEIR PRACTICE TO BROADER SOCIAL CONCERNS. THE SOCIAL WORKER SHOULD VIEW A CLIENT AS A PERSON WITH A PROBLEM WHICH EXISTS NOT IN THE CLIENT ALONE, BUT IN A TOTAL SOCIAL SYSTEM.
