Social Workers are concerned with social problems, their causes, their solutions and their human impacts. Social workers work with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. Social Work is the profession committed to the pursuit of social justice, to the enhancement of the quality of life, and to the development of the full potential of each individual, group and community in society.
Professional Social Workers are generally considered those who hold a degree in Social Work. Often these practitioners must also obtain a license or be professionally registered. In most areas of the English speaking world, social workers start with a Bachelor of Social Work (BA, BSc or BSW) degree.
