Reconsidering Social Work 100 Years Post-Flexner: Where Are We Now, Where Are We Headed, What Has Been Gained, What Has Been Lost?
Gelman, Caroline Rosenthal; González, Manny J.
Journal of Social Work Education, v52 suppl1 pS1-S5 2016
A century has passed since Abraham Flexner deemed social work not to be a profession, and the field finds itself once again in a moment of questioning and redefining its nature, objectives, methods, and standing among the professions and in the academy. In this introduction we revisit Flexner's influential speech, review some of the critical issues facing social work today, and highlight the contributions of the 15 social work educators from schools all across the country, experts in social work research, practice, policy, and education, as they consider what social work has been, where it stands today, and what it should be as we look to the future.
