Significant Issues in Rebuilding the Social Work Profession in China
Shu, Cai
Chinese Education and Society, v46 n6 p16-27 Nov-Dec 2013
The author traces the origin of social work to the Confucian concept of Great Unity and social organization of traditional Chinese society. While professional social work started in 1921, its development was interrupted in 1952, but the practice of social work never stopped. Social work was revived as a discipline and profession in 1979 and has made great progress. The author raises issues of training and the localization of theory and practice in building social work in China.
