What is Professional Social Work?

Professional Social Work, just like any other profession (Doctor, Lawyer, Chartered Accountant, Engineer, etc.,) is a practice-based profession and an academic discipline that promotes social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility, and respect for diversity are central to Professional Social Work. Underpinned by theories of social work, social sciences, humanities, and indigenous knowledge, social work engages people and structures to address life challenges and enhance well-being. 

In the Indian context, the concept of Professional Social Work is slowly catching up. Till a few decades back, social work in India was primarily Voluntary Social Work undertaken by Social Workers and politicians. Now social work in India is jointly done by Social Workers, Corporates, and the Government engaging Professional Social Workers in their Social Work Projects and governance.
