The Profession  Social work is defined as a blend of psychology, medicine, and sociology. From psychology,  social workers learn to understand the impact of emotional and psychological factors on the  individual. From sociology, they gain insight into populations of people. From the medical  professions, they learn of the relationships between biological functioning and health/illness and the impact of these factors on psychosocial well­being.  Perhaps the most important distinction between social work and other helping professions is the emphasis on social action through advocacy for those oppressed or discriminated against by  society. Social workers’ goal is defined as follows: to restore to individuals, groups, or communities their  capacity for social functioning and creating societal conditions favorable to that goal. To do this,  social workers link people to resources, provide services, and participate in relevant legislative  processes. Social workers can work in direct practice in the fields of mental health, physical health, and  family/children’s services, or in public sectors funded by local, state and federal settings, which  include public welfare/human service departments, mental health agencies, child welfare  agencies, housing programs, military programs, court systems, public schools, hospitals, and  policy making organizations.  Direct Practice Social workers can provide direct service in the form of crisis intervention and counseling for  services to individuals, families, and groups experiencing difficulty in coping with a life crisis or  transition. Most direct practice social workers engage in activities such as administration,  supervision, teaching, and fundraising.  .   Poverty  Changing Populations  Oppression and Discrimination
