About Social Work...A social worker is one who is committed to working with individuals, groups, and communities, helping them to use the resources within themselves and the environment to cope more effectively with problems. Social Work as a profession is committed to the promotion, restoration, maintenance, and enhancement of social functioning. In contrast to other similar helping professions, social workers focus on bringing about change in small target systems (individual, family, and groups), larger target systems (organizations, communities, and society), or both.
