Overview


A new direction for policy and action is outlined in this reconsideration of the theoretical framework and application of social work. A holistic, inclusive vision of social work is presented to usher in a change from a self-centered, anticollectivist paradigm to a mutually beneficial, community-focused worldview.

Concerns for sustainability, social justice, and global consciousness guide this revision of social work.
