Social Work

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Social Work.

Social work is the attempt to acclimate or rehabilitate the socially disabled, to normal social life and productivity. Social disabilities include such conditions as homelessness, poor mental or emotional health, and unemployment. Early social work consisted of churches and religious organizations attempting to bring comfort to the needy and poor through the charity of religion. Modern social work has three pillars of operation – case work, group work, and community organization – all of which comprise a structure of social rehabilitation that help people adjust to their community, for the benefit of the individual, the family unit, and society as a whole.
