Statement from the NASW
Social work is a practical profession aimed at helping people address their problems and matching them with the resources they need to lead healthy and productive lives.
Beneath this practicality lies a strong value system that can be summarized in two words: social justice. Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities. Social workers aim to open the doors of access and opportunity for everyone, particularly those in greatest need.
