Social work

Social and community development practise makes a persuasive case for employing a social development approach to community development practise at local and village levels. Towards this end, the book offers a conceptual clarity of social and community development (SCD) by adding new dimensions. It also shows the significance of social policy education for social and community development workers and the need for expanding community development practise from local levels to international levels. The author argues that the social work profession itself needs to quickly reorganise and strengthen. It needs to consider alternative modes of preparing social workers and community organisers who can reach out at local levels. The profession also needs to develop indigenous ethical standards for SCD practise. The authors deep reflections reveal the dire need to refocus on SCD practise to address major issues such as poverty and inequality plaguing vast populations around the world.
