Each time the rays of troubling storms hit the lives of the oppressed, underrepresented, underprivileged, the indigents and other vulnerable groups in the society, many policymakers, politicians, religious groups, philanthropists, social thinkers and other concerned individuals strive assiduously to unchain them from those shackles of vulnerability and put smiles on their faces. However, the skill set and method of techniques required to effect lasting change in their lives are not slated on a silver platter. It requires an in-depth body of knowledge, experiences, a stock of professional ethics and practice-wisdom.
With its vehement inclination to restoration and advancement of people’s lives around the globe, the profession does so by establishing a wide range of linkages, collaboration and partnership with individuals, communities, think tanks, academicians, key informants, civil right movements, politicians, parliamentarians, NGO’s, public agencies, educationists, counselors, and other human-centered agencies. This multifaceted interventive practice goes a long way to shape the holistic development of clients.
Many developed countries like U.S.A, UK, and Canada have achieved greater advancement with regards to the integration of social workers into their social structure. In schools, students and pupils have enough social workers to talk to and share their troubling situations and experiences with. They provide “best fit” therapies to students to enhance their holistic functioning and wellbeing in the educational arena. The complex and complicating needs of children with an intellectual deficit, behavioral problems, psychosocial problems, as well as the physically and mentally challenged ones, and those with other complicating health problems, are being catered for and effectively restored to ensure their optimal growth and development. In the same vein, all the problems affecting the aged are resolved to enhance their survival rate and lifespan.
