Fieldwork in Social Work

By Sanjoy Roy

This book addresses myriad issues related to social work in India. The book focuses on the future trends of Indian society and its systems due to the effects of globalization, urbanization, privatization, etc., as well as the role and existence of social work profession. The book examines such questions as to: whether social work in India must follow the indigenous model and reject those which are not related to the culture * whether professional associations should be so motivated as to make them work for the upliftment of social work profession in India * whether such efforts may involve more workshops to identify and generate indigenous teaching materials, more practice-based writings, and more interaction between social work educational institutions and field practitioners. Relevant suggestions that might pave the way for learning and for intervention are also presented. The book will be useful for students, practitioners, and educators in social work practice.
