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  knowledge­base 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 well­being 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 laissez­faire 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.
