Social Welfare: Its business, history, and future Summary Social Welfare and its goal Social welfare is a nation’s system of programs, benefits, and services that helps people meet those social, economic, educational, and health needs that are fundamental to the maintenance of society. The goal of social welfare is to fulfill the social, financial, health, and recreational needs of everyone in a society. The relationship between Social Welfare and Sociology, Psychology, Social Work, and Human Services Social welfare overlaps with sociology, psychology, and other disciplines on knowledge-base level. Social welfare overlaps with social work at a practice (service) level. Almost all social workers work in a field of social welfare. The purpose of social welfare institutions are to prevent, alleviate, and contribute to the solution of recognized social problems so as to directly improve the well-being of individuals, groups, families, organizations, and communities. History of Social Welfare The residual approach characterized social welfare programs from early history to the depression of the 1930s, at which time programs with an institutional orientation began to be implemented. Social welfare programs have in the past been influenced by the protestant ethic, the laissez-faire economic view, social Darwinism, individualism, the industrial revolution, and humanitarian ideals. Liberals generally adhere to the institutional orientation, whereas conservatives tend to adhere to the residual orientation. How the future of social welfare will be affected by technological advances? Technological advances largely determine changes in our lifestyles; lifestyle changes largely determine changes in our future social, financial, health, and recreational needs; the latter changes largely determine changes in needed social service programs. How the future of social welfare will be affected by changes in the American family system? The anticipated technological advances and the adoption of new family forms will result in the creation of new social service programs and the expansion of certain existing programs. Unless such changes are carefully examined and planned, our society faces a future shock.
